Girl Scout Song

She sailed away on a happy summer's day
on the back of a crocodile
You see, said she, he's as tame as he can be.
I'll float him down the Nile.
Well the croc winked his eye,
and she waved them all good-bye,
wearing a happy smile.
At the end of the ride,
the lady was inside,
And oh, the smile on the crocodile!

BACK OF THE BREAD

BACK OF THE BREAD IS THE FLOUR
AND BACK OF THE FLOWER IS THE MILL
AND BACK OF THE MILL IS THE SUN AND THE RAIN
AND THE FATHER'S WILL.
