Growing Up In Girl Scouts

Tune: Brownie Smile Song


Daisy

"I've something in my pocket..."
That's what the big girls say.
I'll have a pocket of my own,
When I wear brown someday.

My life is bright and easy,
I smile most of the day.
I'm having lots of fun now,
I sing and laugh and play!

Brownie

I've something in my pocket
That belongs across my face.
I keep it very close at hand
In a most convenient place.

I bet you'll never guess it
If you guess a long, long while
I'll put it on and show you,
It's my great big Brownie Smile.

Junior

"I've something in my pocket..."
That's what I used to say.
I spent my time so aimlessly,
At home, at school, at play.

Now every day is special,
I'm searching, who am I?
Only I can find that out
Please let me have a try!

Cadette

"I've something in my pocket..."
That's what I used to say.
Playing childhood games with friends,
Seems just like yesterday.

I'm becoming a young woman,
Soon I'll be a child no more,
There's lots of opportunity,
And so much to explore.

Senior

"I've something in my pocket..."
That's what I used to say.
Then Mother Nature waved her hand
And childhood flew away.

Today my needs are different,
I wonder, 'What will be?'
I'm making life decisions now,
The choice is up to me.

Leaders

I have something in my pocket,
That's what we always said,
But now we are the leaders,
Teaching them instead

We teach them when they're young,
We guide them when they're old
We watch them grow up strong and tall
And that is our reward.
