Girl Scouts Songs - San Miguel Elem. School, Hagonoy

Songs we learned from Mrs. Martha Alphonso, our Girl Scout Leader, and from other Girl Scout leaders.


Make New Friends (Round Song)

Make new friends, but keep the old

One is silver and the other is gold.

A circle's round, it has no end

That's how long I want to be your friend

I have a hand, and you have another

Put them together and we have each other.

Each Campfire Lights Anew

Each campfire lights anew

The flame of friendship true.

The joy we've had in knowing you

Will last our whole life through.



Oh I went to Peter's flowing stream

Where the water's so good

And I heard there the cukoo

As she called from the woods

Ho-li-ah, ho-le-rah-hi-hi-ah, Ho-le-rah cukoo.

Ho-le-rah-hi-hi-ah, Ho-le-rah cuckoo.

Ho-le-rah-hi-hi-ah, Ho-le-rah cukoo


A - Patter on knees; 1 - slap knees; 2 -clap hands; 3 -snap fingers.



O Vreneli, my pretty one

Pray tell me where's your home?

My home, it is in Zwitzerland

It's made of wood and stone

My home, it is in Zwitzerland

It's made of wood and stone.

Yo, ho, ho, Tra la, la (7x)


Who Made All ...?

Who made all the birds that fly

Birds that fly, birds that fly?

Who made all the birst that fly?

God in heaven above.

Who made all the flowers that bloom?

Who made all the fish that swim?

Who made all the dogs that bark?

Who made all the bunnies that hop?

Who made both of you and me?


Alouette, gentille Alouette

Alouette, je te plumerai
Je te plumerai la tête
Je te plumerai la tête
Et la tête
Et la tête


She'll Be Coming Down the Mountain

She'll be comin' round the mountain when she comes (whoo whoo)

She'll be comin' round the mountain when she comes (whoo whoo)

She'll be comin' round the mountain

Blowin' steam off like a fountain,

She'll be comin' round the mountain when she comes. (whoo whoo)


Girl Scouts Together

Girl Scouts together, that is our song.

Winding the old trails, rocky and long.

Learning our motto, living our creed.

Girl Scouts together in every good deed.

Girl Scouts together, happy are we.

Friendly to neighbors, for o'er the sea.

Faithful to country, loyal to home.

Known as true Girl Scouts, wherever we roam.


Whene'er You Make a Promise(Round Song)

Whene'er you make a promise

Consider well it's importance

And when made,

Engrave it upon your heart.

Leader calls "bananas" and all players holding bananas exchange places. Continue till all the fruits are called repeating the movement. When the leader yells "fruit basket upset", all the players exchange places.
Variation: Assign places to all the players. When "it" yells "fruit basket upset," the one who does not find a place becomes "it."
Find long words like: cooperation, class reunion, congratulations, happy anniversary, international, etc. On a 2x2 size paper/card print each of the letters. Prepare 2 sets of same letters forming a specific word. Place all letters in 2 separate sealed envelopes. Divide players into 2 groups. Give an envelope to one team and theother envelope to the other team. Give them 5 - 10 minutes to form theword that would spell out the letters in the envelope. The team who gets done first wins.
3. Mummify -

4. Escavenger Hunt - Hide items/objects in the room/on the playground. Ask players to find them and bring them back to you. Those who found the item must keep it a secret. Make sure there's enough hidden objects for the players to find.
5. "Silly Game" -

At this call, all players must leave the line and run across to the opposite line. "It" tries to tag as many as possible before they reach the line. Anyone who is tagged, joins "it" and tries to catch the other players. The game continues until all players are caught.
11. Good Egg -
Number of players: 5 or more. One player is the egg tester. The others are eggs. The eggs sit in a circle on the ground with knees high against the chin and feet flat on the ground, hands clasped tightly about the knees. The tester goes from one another, testing them by giving them a push against the knees. This push rocks the player upon his back. If the player is bale to rock back to his original position without breaking the handclasp, he is a good egg. If the player cannot recover his original position, he is a bad egg.

Need: At least 2 girls, 8 – 10 years old each with a pair of wooden shoes.
Draw the starting and turning points 8-10 feet apart. Each player places 1 wooden shoe on the ground at the turning point. Players start simultaneously.

Player looks at the opposite direction and tosses the other wooden shoe to the one on the ground. If the shoe made a contact with the one on the ground, player goes back walking to the starting point. If not, the player picks up the wooden shoe; touches the one on the ground then goes back walking to the starting point.

Body Movements: Walking, foot twisting, skipping, hopping, back bending


Player, holding one shoe and with eyes closed; walks to the wooden shoe on the ground and touches it with other shoe then walks back to starting point.
Player carries one shoe on the head and drops it on the shoe on the ground; walks back to the starting point.
Player places one shoe on the shoulder and drops the shoe on the one on the ground. Picks up the shoe and walks back to the starting point.
4. Repeat the procedure placing shoe on stretched arm, between legs, back of bended knee, between knees, foot, and between ankles.
Foot Twisting: Put body weight on the heel, twist, then put body weight on the toe, twist repeatedly. Do this movement with steps 2, 3, 4.
Skipping: Repeat steps 2, 3, & 4.
Hopping: Repeat steps 2, 3, & 4.
Body Bending: After all body movements/routines have been performed, player holds one shoe, walks toward the other shoe on the ground. Player turns around looking at the opposite direction; bends body backwards and with the shoe she’s holding touches the other shoe on the ground. Player comes back up and walks back to the starting point. There’s more laughing and giggling when one player is unable to touch the other shoe on the ground.

Game is over.

Tinipon ni Laura B. Corpuz (laurabc@bumail.bradley.edu)

Ang Po at ang Opo

(Grade 1 - Rosalina Sebastian)

Ang bilin sa akin ng ina't ama ko

Maging magalangin mamumupo ako

'Pag kinakausap ng matandang tao

Sa lahat ng lugar sa lahat ng dako.


"Pag ang kausap ko'y matanda sa akin

Na dapat igalang at dapat pupuin

Natutuwa ako na bigkas-bigkasin

Ang "po" at ang "opo" ng buong paggiliw.


Ang Bisiro

(Grade 2 - Josefa T. Leon)
Ako'y may bisiro, o munting kabayo

Pula ang balahibo, at sinasakyan ko.

Damo ang pagkain, pulot ang inumin

Kung tumakbo'y matulin, katulad ng hangin.




(Grade 3 - Leticia B. Sunpongco)

Ito palang niyog, bagong tumutubo

Langit na mataas siyang tinuturo.

'Pag ito'y lumaki't nasunod ang anyo

Lupang tinubuan duon din ang yuko.


Pagtawid sa Daan

(Grade 1 - Rosalina Sebastian)

Bago tumawid sa daan

Tumingin sa kaliwa't kanan

Nang hindi magulungan

Ng tumatakbong sasakyan.


The Owl

(Grade 4 - Jose Reyes)


Of all the queer birds I ever did see

The owl is the queerest by far to me.

For all day long, he sits on a tree

And when the night comes, away flies he.


The Little Plant by Kate L. Brown

(Grade 4, Jose Reyes)


In the heart of the seed

Burried deep so deep

A dear little plant

Lays fast asleep.


"Wake," said the sunshine

And creep to the light."

"Wake," said the voice

Of the raindrops bright."


The little plant heard

And it rose to see

"What a wonderful

Outside world might be."


Si Ale Kong Nena (Awit)

(Grade 2 - Josefa T. Leon)


Si Ale kong Nena'y sumalok ng tubig

Nahulog sa balon naging gumamela

Ipinagtanong ko kung sino'ng kumuha

Si kapitang Pepe, tala sa umaga.


May Taong Nagtanong (Awit)

(Grade 2 - Josefa T. Leon)


May taong nagtanong

Ang daan kung saan

May batang sumagot

"Sa banda po riyan."

"Salamat sa iyo,"

"Wala pong anuman

Natutuwa akong

Kayo'y matulungan."


Sari-saring Tugma

(Grade 3 - Leticia B. Sunpongco)


Kumain ka ng mangga
Kumain ka ng papaya
Hindi magtatagal
Ikaw ay gaganda.
Uminom ka ng gatas
Kumain ka ng itlog
Hindi magtatagal
Ikaw ay bibilog.

Little Sister

(Grade 1 Dance-song - Rosalina Sebastian)
Little sister, dance with me
Both my hands I give to thee
Right foot first, left foot then
Round about and back again.
Let you feet fo tap, tap, tap
Let your hands go clap, clap, clap
Right foot first, left foot then
Round about and back again.
Let your head go nick, nick, nick
Let your fingers go click, click, click
Right foot first, left foot then
Round about and back again.

Mr. Postman (Song)
(Grade 4 -Jose Reyes)

Mr. Postman have you any Valentine?
Among so many that you think
Was sent to me?
Postman, look in your bag for me.


Valentine, Valentine
Is there one that you know is mine!
Postman, please you look and see
Is there one in your bag for me?


Tootle, Tootle, Tee

(Grade 5 - Norma Trajano)


I will make a whistle, jolly as can be

I'll blow merrilly tootle, tootle, tee

I'll whistle all the night and I'll blow all the day

And everyone will beg me, please to go away

Tootle, tootle, tootle, tootle, too-tootle

Blow my little whistle, tootle, tootle, tee.


My Mother

Who dressed my darling clothes so gay,

And taught my pretty prayer today,

And minded all what I had to say?

My mother, my mother!

Who ran to help me when I fell, I fell,

And taught me how to story tell, story tell,

And kissed me when I'm ill?

My mother, my mother, my mother!


Lullaby (Sleep My Darling Baby)

Sleep my darling baby, mother is not far away

Sleep my pretty baby, stars now shed their softest day

Sleep my darling baby, sleep, guardian angel watches near

Sweetly sleep till morning, my darling baby dear.


Lovely Evening (Round Song)

(Grade 6 - Vicente D. Santos)

Oh how lovely is the evening, is the evening

When the bells are sweetly ringing, sweetly ringing

Ding, Dong, Ding, Dong.


Music Alone Shall Live

All things shall perish from under the sky;

Music alone shall live, music alone shall live

Music alone shall live, never shall die.


Don't You Go to Far Zamboanga


Don't you go, oh don't you goTo far Zamboanga

Where you may forget your darling far away.

Don't you go, oh don't you goFor if you leave me

How can I without you stay?


Oh weep not, my dear paloma.

Oh weep not, for I'll return.

Oh weep not, my little darling,

I shall remember and I shall yearn.
