Woman's Scouting Lament

Mitch Miller and his Chorus sing My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean

Tune: My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean


Since scouting has taken my hubbie
My worries are shocking to see,
Oh, what have they done in Boy Scouting
To turn his affections from me?

(Chorus)
Bring back, bring back, Oh, bring
back my hubbie to me, to me!
Bring back, bring back, Oh, bring
back my hubbie to me!

Last night as I lay on my pillow,
And tossed to and fro in my bed,
I thought of the rift it is causing
And hoped Scouting soon would "Drop Dead"!

(Chorus)

Each Monday I'm lonely at dinner
On Tuesday, I'm left all alone,
The rest of the week I'm a "Widow"
And weekends he's never at home!

(Chorus)

Oh, who will go to the Scout office
Oh, who will go down there and see
If hubbie won't listen to reason
And give up Boy Scouting for me?

(Chorus)
