Cub Scout Leaders

Do Your Ears Hang Low?

Do your ears hang low,
Do they wobble to and fro,
Can you tie ’em in a knot,
Can you tie ’em in a bow,
Can you throw them over your shoulder,
Like a continental soldier,
Do your ears hang low?

Tell me ’bout your legs,
Are they short, are they thin,
Are they tall or wide,
If you’re racin’ will they win,
Do they get you where you’re goin’,
Are they fast or are they slowin’,
Tell me ’bout your legs?

Have you got a tail,
That is pretty or is plain,
Is it curly or straight,
Have you given it a name,
Is it short or is it long,
Is it weak or maybe strong,
Have you got a tail?

Do your ears hang high,
Do they stand up in the sky,
Do they drop down when they’re wet,
Do they stand up when they’re dry,
Do you wave them to your neighbor,
With a minimum of labor,
Do your ears hang high?
