Favourite Campfire songs

Updated on May 6, 2015

Campfire's Burning

Campfire’s burning, campfire’s burning,

Draw nearer, draw nearer

In the glowing, in the glowing,

Come sing and be merry,

Sing and be merry.

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree

Merry, merry king of the bush is he

Laugh, Kookaburra!

Laugh, Kookaburra!

Gay your life must be


Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree

Eating all the gum drops he can see

Stop, Kookaburra!

Stop, Kookaburra!

Leave some there for me!


Kookaburra sits on an electric wire

Jumping up and down with his pants on fire

Ouch Kookaburra!

Ouch Kookaburra!

Hot your tail must be!

Once a Girl Guide went to camp

Once a girl guide went to camp, went to camp.

Went to camp without a lamp, without a lamp.

Aaand then she saw a spider in her bed,

This is what the girl guide said, girl guide said.


Oh spider, go away, go away.

You are not allowed to stay, allowed to stay.

For this is what my guider said:

No two bodies in one bed, in one bed!


Once a boy scout went to camp, went to camp.

Went to camp without a lamp, without a lamp.

Aaand then he saw a spider in his bed,

This is what the boy scout said, boy scout said:

AAAAAAAAAAAAH (Screams)

Animal Fair

We went to the animal fair,

The birds and the beasts were there,

The big baboon by the light of the moon

Was combing his auburn hair.

The monkey fell out of his bunk (THUMP!)

And slid down the elephant's trunk, (WHEEE!)

The elephant sneezed and fell on his knees

And what became of the monkey monkey monkey ............

Singin' in the Rain

I'm singing in the rain

Just singing in the rain

What a glorious feeling

I'm happy again


(From here the leader sings each line, others repeat)

Hold it!*

Thumbs together! *

(everyone) A-ti-ti-ta a-ti-ti-ta a-ti-ti-ta-ta

A-ti-ti-ta a-ti-ti-ta a-ti-ti-ta-ta



Repeat adding a new action each time.

The final verse should be:

I'm singing in the rain

Just singing in the rain

What a glorious feeling

I'm happy again


(repeating)

Hold it!

Thumbs together!

Elbows together!

Knees together!

Toes together!

Bums up!

Heads down!

Tongues out!

(everyone) A-ti-ti-ta a-ti-ti-ta a-ti-ti-ta-ta

A-ti-ti-ta a-ti-ti-ta a-ti-ti-ta-ta

The Quartermaster's Store

My eyes are dim, I cannot see,

I have not brought my specks with me,

I have not brought my specks with me.


There are rats, rats, as big as alley cats,

At the store, at the store.

There are rats, rats, as big as alley cats,

At the Quartermaster's store.


Gravy . . . enough to float the navy.

Cakes . . . that give us tummy aches.

Eggs . . . with scaly chicken legs.

Butter . . . running in the gutter.

Softly Falls

Softly falls the light of day

As our campfire fades away

Silently each Guide should ask

Have I done my daily task?

Have I kept my honour bright?

Can I guiltless sleep tonight?

Have I done and have I dared

Everything to Be Prepared?
