Guiding Songs

We all know about Girl Guide Cookies – when they’re being sold, where to buy ‘em, and the flavours available. But did you know about the Girl Guide Cookie songs? Here are the lyrics to a few gems we’ve heard lately! These would be great add-ons to cookie selling events in any neighbourhood. Looking for more lyrics? Check out Becky’s Guiding  Resource Centre – it’s fantastic!

The Cookie Song

(To be sung to the tune of ‘Doe a Deer’ from the Sound of Music)
Retrieved from Girl Guides of Canada’s Facebook fan page post by Sue H., Oct 24, 2011)

Dough – the stuff you find in a cookie.
Ray – the man who bought my cookies.
Me – the one he bought the cookies from.
Fa – the Lineup for my Cookies!
So, I think I’ll have a cookie.
La, la, la, la, la, la cookie.
Tea? – no thanks-I want my cookies.
That will bring us back to Dough.

Celebrate! Girl Guide Cookies Are Here

Here we come now walking down your street
We’ve got Girl Guide cookies and they can’t be beat!
This only happens just twice a year
So celebrate because the time is here.

We’re doing it safely going two by two.
Calling on folks on the avenue.
We’re pretty smart cookies, we know what to do
You look out for me, I look out for you.

Get out your loonies, your quarters and your dimes
This year we’re selling 29!
We’ll be knock knock knocking on your door
We’ve got Girl Guide cookies do you want some more?

Don’t be thinking this is something new
My mom sold cookies and her mom did too.
It’s a proud tradition, a part of our past
It’s a part of our future, good things seem to last.

I hope I’m making this really clear
This only happens just twice a year.
In the spring there’s chocolate and vanilla too
In the fall there’s chocolatey mint for you.

So get out your loonies, your quarters and your dimes
This year we’re selling 39!
We’ll be ring ring ringing on the bell
We’ve got Girl Guide cookies and we’re ready to sell.

Put away the ice cream, who needs cake
This is better make no mistake.
It’s better than candies, it’s better than chips
They’ve never tasted the likes of this.

Think of the things our work will do
Riding horses for Jennie, summer camp for Sue.
Sleeping under the stars as clear as can be
It’s a dream come true like a fantasy.

We’re in this together, united we stand
Girl Guides from across this land.
Having fun together makes us grow up strong
And Girl Guide cookies help the dream along.

So get out your loonies, your quarters and your dimes
This year we’re selling 49!
We’ll be walk walk walking up to your door
With Girl Guide cookies do you want some more?

So call Uncle Charlie, get my sister Drew
Call Granny and Gramps ’cause they like them too.
Go get the neighbours and the little ones too
We love Girl Guide cookies, tell me how about you?

So here we come now walking down the street
We’ve got cookies and they can’t be beat.
This only happens just twice a year
So celebrate because the time is here.

Get out your loonies, your quarters and your dimes
This year I’m selling one million 600 thousand four hundred and twenty-one! Hun???!! (Okay, so maybe I’ll need a little help!)
This only happens just twice a year
So Celebrate because the time is here
Celebrate because the time is here
Celebrate… Girl Guide Cookies are here!
