Be prepared!
To maintain an even keel.
Be prepared!
For a harrowing ordeal.
We have several hundred numbers
here to do,
And the doors are being locked
until we're through.
Be prepared!
If you harbor any qualms.
Be prepared!
For this foolery of Tom's.
Our theatrical integrity we've
totally disgraced,
And we think that you will find it
all in questionable taste.
Every possible expense was clearly spared.
Be prepared!

Be prepared!
That's the Boy Scout's marching song,
Be prepared!
As through life you march along.
Be prepared to hold your liquor
pretty well,
Don't write naughty words on walls
if you can't spell.
Be prepared!
To hide that pack of cigarettes,
Don't make book -- if you cannot
cover bets.
Keep that pot hidden where
you're sure that it will not be found
And be careful not to smoke them
when the scoutmaster's around,
For he only will insist that
it 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!
