A Driver's Dilemna

CHARACTERS:A Cub Scout and his friend

PROPS:          2 chairs for the car

(The Cub and his friend are sitting on the chairs. They go through the motions as the
narrator reads.)


Cub Scout John and his friend one day
Went for a ride in his Chevrolet

His friend was cool, his name was Frank
But he is what you might call, a crank.

It’s just too bad he wasn’t a little smarter
‘Cause he doesn’t know how to work the starter.

John showed him how, the little dear
And also how to shift the gear.

Away they went but something broke
‘Twas just a measly little spoke.

He fixed it with a piece of wire
Then something popped – it was a tire.

‘Twas mended soon, but next ker-plunk
They struck a branch and smashed the top.

“Dear me” shouted Frank. “That’s too much”
Then something happened to the clutch.

And next poor Frank, unlucky dub
Just grazed a rock and smashed the hub.

“Oh Frank” said John with a squeal
“I think we’re going to lose a wheel.”

They climbed a hill and then was seen
The tank contained no gasoline.

They journeyed home with Frank a pushin’
And John just sitting upon a cushion.

Thinking to himself with a silly grin
What a crazy story, he could tell his den.


(Pretend driving)

(Cub leans over and pushes starter

(Pretend moving gear)

(Jump out fast and look at wheel.
Fix tire - jump back In)

(Work fast to change tire, then
back to chairs)

(Duck with hands over head)




(Looking over side of car)



(Frank gets behind chair)
