Retired Scouter Campfire Songs 


Harry Kakalegian


I am singing you
this story
Of a great man of the cloth.
His name was Kakalegian
And he worked for Irving Roth.
He died while cutting velvet
On a hot July the fourth,
But his cloth goes shining on!

Chorus:
Harry, Harry Kakalegian
Harry, Harry Kakalegian
Harry, Harry Kakalegian
His cloth keeps shining on!

He died while in the service of his lord.
He was trampling through the warehouse
Where the drapes of Roth are stored.
He got the finest funeral
That the Union could afford.
But his cloth goes shining on!
Well, Kakalegian perished
As he stood by his machine.
And when the firemen broke in,
Well, they found him in between
A pile of roasted dacorns
And some french fried gaberdine.
But his cloth goes shining on!
