BP Feeling

I’ve got that BP feeling, up in my head,
Up in my head, up in my head,
I’ve got that BP feeling, up in my head
Up in my head to stay.

I’ve got that BP feeling, deep in my heart,
Deep in my heart, deep in my heart,
I’ve got that BP feeling, deep in my heart.
Deep in my heart to stay.

I’ve got that BP feeling, all over me,
All over me, all over me,
I’ve got that BP feeling, all over me
All over me to stay.

Chinese Fan

My ship sailed from China with a cargo of tea,
All laden with presents for you and for me.
They brought me a fan, just imagine my bliss,
When I found myself fanning like this, like this, like this

The Girl Guide Law, shows the way
Helps us when we work and play

Respect myself, and others too
In thoughts and words and what we do

Polite and truthful with honesty

A Guiding circle has no ends

Guides Make A Difference

[Melinda Carroll]

We have come together, as Guides in unity,
We listen, we trust, we question, we learn
And seeds begin to grow
Inside our minds there’s a confidence that says,
Guides make a difference to our lives

We thrive on the choices that Guides offer us
We laugh , we share, we play, we sing
And friendships come alive.
Inside our hearts there’s a confidence that says
Guides make a difference to our land.

We rise to meet the challenge that Guides has to bring
We serve, we give, we live, we believe
And lives are transformed
Inside our souls there’s a confidence that says
Guides make a difference to our World.

International Hello Song

tune: I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing

When we meet a Thai Girl Guide
We all say “Saw-A-Dee
And when we meet a French Girl Guide,
It’s “Bonjour” and “Merci
To German girls it’s “Gudentaug“, Hawaiian “Aloha
Konnichiwa” in Japanese and “Hello” America

It's a Small World (with Guiding verses)

[Guiding verses by Ashfield Division Guiders, Nottinghamshire, UK]

It’s a world of laughter, a world of tears
It’s a world of hopes and a world of fears
There’s so much that we share, that it’s time we’re aware
It’s a small world after all

Chorus:
It’s a small world after all
It’s a small world after all
It’s a small world after all
It’s a small, small world

There is just one moon and one golden sun
And a smile means friendship to everyone
Though the mountains divide, and the oceans are wide
It’s a small world after all

It’s a world of Guiding, a world of fun
It’s a world of aims, but we work as one
There’s so much that we share
That it’s time we’re aware
It’s a small world after all.

You can go to China or go to Spain
And the Guiding Handshake will be the same
We have friends in Japan, Mexico, Pakistan,
It’s a small world after all.

It’s a world of colour, a pretty sight,
Red and yellow and brown and black and white
And yet under our skin, we are all kith & kin
It’s a small world after all

Some may live in houses, in tents in shacks
And what one man has yet another lacks
There’s so much that we share, that it’s time we’re aware
It’s a small world after all

How we live our lives we must each decide,
Every Leader, Helper and each Girl Guide {modified for Australian sections}
Throughout Guiding we find, both in body and mind
It’s a small world after all

Make new friends

Make new friends, but keep the old.

One is silver and the other gold.

A circle’s round, it has no ends.

That’s how long I want to be your friend.

My Favourite Guiding Things

tune: My Favourite Things

English Version

Dewdrops on gumboots and bowls of rice crispies.
Black soot on kettles and stew cooked in dixies.
Sturdy wood gadgets all fashioned with string.
These are a few of my favourite things.

Green coloured ridge tents put up in a hurry.
Whistles and cow horns and goulash and curry.
Wild ducks that fly with sun on their wings.
These are a few of my favourite things.

Girls in blue tracksuits with navy blue jackets.
Can’t get to sleep for the noise and the racket.
Bright golden mornings that make us all sing.
These are a few of my favourite things.

When the camp ends, when the coach comes,
When we’re feeling sad.
We simply remember our favourite camp things.
And then we don’t feel so bad!

Pizza Hut

tune: A ram sam sam

A Pizza Hut, a Pizza Hut,
Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Pizza Hut
A Pizza Hut, a Pizza Hut,
Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Pizza Hut
McDonalds, McDonalds,
Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Pizza Hut
McDonalds, McDonalds,
Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Pizza Hut

Scavenger Hunts and Abseiling Towers

tune: My Favourite Things

Adapted from ‘My Favourite Guide Things’ by Ruth May

Scavenger Hunts and abseiling towers.
Songs ‘round the campfire and taking cold showers.
Sturdy wood gadgets all fashioned with string.
These are a few of my favourite things.

Seniors and Rangers, tents put up in a hurry.
Tackling challenges without any worry.
Arrows that fly with sun on their wings.
These are a few of my favourite things.

Girls in patrols and morning tea packets.
Can’t get to sleep for the noise and the racket.
Bright golden mornings that make us all sing.
These are a few of my favourite things.

When the camp ends, when the folks come,
When we’re feeling sad.
We simply remember our favourite camp things,
And then we don’t feel so bad.

Sister Guide

tune: Edelweiss 

Sister guide, sister guide
We are thinking about you.
Round the world, flag unfurled
We are happy to greet you.
Promise & law, we aim to keep
Standards higher & higher.
In this way, may we stay
May God’s blessing surround you.

Sisters in Guiding

I haven’t met you personally,
But one glance confirms a friend I see
For behind the trefoil and the smiles,
Lies strong ideals linking hearts and minds,
That banish time and miles.

Chorus:
You are my sister in Guiding,
You’re a friend I can confide in,
No matter if you’re a different race,
Young or old, from some far place,
As sisters in Guiding we share a secret drive,
To make this world a better place in which to be alive

From around the world we throng,
Eight million people can’t be wrong,
Guides are found in many lands,
You’re never far from a friendly smile
And willing, lending hands.

So we travel on together
Through the bright and stormy weather,
Striding forth in work and game,
We are joined by the Guiding spirit,
The world is never the same.

Together we Change the World

Chorus:

Change the world come with me,
Time to let our dreams fly free
And it comes so easily, that is our way.
Every minute we’re alive,
It’s our love that will survive.
In the Girl Scouts together we change the world.

Sisters of every colour,
Friends from everywhere
We all make a difference
When we show the world we care.

Girl Scouts are a family,
And they show us what we can be
And I believe together,
We change the world.
