Retired Scouter Campfire Songs 


Suitors


There are suitors at my door, O-lÍ-lÍ-o bahia
Six or eight or may be more O-lÍ-lÍ-o bahia
And my father wants me wed, O-lÍ-lÍ-o bahia
Or at least that's what he said, O-lÍ-lÍ-o bahia

Chorus: O-lÍ-o la, O-lÍ-lÍ-o bahia
O-lÍ-o la, O-lÍ-lÍ-o bahia
O-lÍ-o la, O-lÍ-lÍ-o bahia
O-lÍ-o la, O-lÍ-lÍ-o bahia

I told him that I will, O-lÍ-lÍ-o bahia
When the rivers flow uphill, O-lÍ-lÍ-o bahia
Or the fish begin to fly, O-lÍ-lÍ-o bahia
Or the day before I die, O-lÍ-lÍ-o bahia

Another song I didn't know there was a third verse to! Thanks to
Marianne Mitchell!

So I left the very next day , O-lÍ-lÍ-o bahia
For at home I could not stay, O-lÍ-lÍ-o bahia
And with help from him above, O-lÍ-lÍ-o bahia
I will find the one I love, O-lÍ-lÍ-o bahia
