SPOKEN LIVE INTRODUCTION ON «REVISITED»: You know, of all the songs I have ever sung, that is the one I've had the most requests not to. I have time for one more here. This one is a little song dedicated to the Boy Scouts of America. (applause) We seem to have a convention here tonight. The Boy Scouts of America, those noble little bastions of democracy, and the American Legion of tomorrow. Their motto is--I would like to state at this time that I am not now and have never been... a member of the Boy Scouts of America--their motto is, as you know, «Be Prepared,» and that is the name of this song SUNG: Be prepared! That's the Boy Scouts' 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 those reefers hidden where you're sure That they 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!
