Be Prepared

Be Prepared
(Tom Lehrer)
(GFG4) C/G7/CF

Be prepared, that's the Boy Scouts marching song
Be prepared, as through life you go along,
Be prepared to hold your liquor pretty well
Don't write naughty words on walls if you can't spell, can't spell

Be prepared! To hide that pack of cigarettes
Don't make book if you can not cover bets
Keep those reefers hidden where you're sure they'll not be found
And be careful not to smoke them when the Scoutmaster's around
For he only will insist that they be shared,
Be prepared.

Be prepared! That's the Boy Scouts' solemn creed!
Be prepared! And be clean in word and deed
Don't solicit for your sister, that's not nice
Unless you get a good percentage of her price

Be prepared! And be careful not to do
Your good deeds when there's no one watching you,
If you're looking for adventure of a new and different kind
And you come across a Girl Scout who is similarly inclined,
Don't be nervous, don't be flustered, don't be scared...
Be prepared!
