Lyrics

Lyrics
(Chorus) Announcements, Announcements, Announcements!

A terrible way to die!
A terrible way to die!
A terrible way to talk to Death,
A terrible way to die!

Announcements, Announcements, Announcements!

The wheels on the bus go round and round,
Round and round, round and round,
The wheels on the bus go round and round,
THROW HIM UNDER THEM!

Announcements, Announcements, Announcements!

Have you ever seen a wind bag, a wind bag, a wind bag,
have you ever seen a wind bag, well there's one RIGHT NOW!
He goes this way and that way and this way and that way,
have you ever seen a wind bag, well there's one RIGHT NOW!

Announcements, Announcements, Announcements!

Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream
Throw your counselor overboard and listen to him scream!

Announcements, Announcements, Announcements!

We sold our cow...
We sold our cow...
We have no use...
For your bull now!

Announcements, Announcements, Announcements!

Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream,
Merrily-merrily-merrily-merrily, life is but a dream!
Cuz’ when we wake up, we’ll wish we were dead,
The Announcer’s voice will be, STUCK INSIDE OUR HEADS!

Announcements, Announcements, Announcements!

This old man, he yakked on,
He yakked on till half past one,
With a yak-yak-paddy-whack,
What are we to do?
This old man can’t get a clue!

Announcements, Announcements, Announcements!

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,
Where’s the fun in listening to this guy talk all day, HEY!
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,
Make this guy pack up his bags and go far-far away, HEY!

Announcements, Announcements, Announcements!

Words of wisdom,
Words of wisdom,
they’re so Boring,
They're so Boring,
Boring words of wisdom
Boring words of wisdom
Dumb, dumb, dumb, (Counselor shouts "GET OUT!")
Dumb, dumb, dumb, (Counselor shouts "GET OUT!")

Announcements, Announcements, Announcements!

SPEAK FREE SHORT AND SWEET!

Jack be nimble, Jack be quick, you be quick too!

Announcements, Announcements, Announcements!

This old man, talked on too,
Rolled along till half past two,
With a yak-yak-paddy-whack,
Leave us all alone!
This old man just won’t go home!

Announcements, Announcements, Announcements!

Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream
Ha- ha fooled ya, we're in a submarine!

Announcements, Announcements, Announcements!

This old man, blabbed away,
He blabbed on till half past eight,
With a yak-yak-paddy-whack,
MAKE HIM GO AWAY!
Don’t come back another day!

Announcements, Announcements, Announcements!

On this solemn, gloomy day,
as the announcer yacks away
silently each scout will ask,
"How much longer can this last?"

Announcements, Announcements, Announcements!

Darkness falls across the land,
Announcement time is close at hand,
Leaders crawl in search of scouts,
To suck all of their patience out!

Announcements, Announcements, Announcements!

The final verse comes to a tee,
I do not miss the irony,
That in this song we’ve used more time,
Then ever could quite come to mind!

Announcements, Announcements, Announcements!

Action

Make sure to do this song during announcement time ONLY! You could do several arrangements, such as having all the scouts sing the announcements chorus, and then have each one solo sing a certain verse. Have fun creating your own versions and arrangements!

CommentI used a few of the verses from the Tomahawk Scout Reservation Version of this song, but made up the others.
