The Homemade Band

Author:  S.C.C.C.

Cub Scouts sing the following song to the tune of “She’ll Be Comin’ Round the Mountain” while
doing what the line says. From second verse on, keep adding the sounds. So for the third verse,
after the gonger gongs, then the clapper claps and the chimer chimes.
Suggestion for the instruments:

  • Chime with wooden spoon and pan lid.
  • Clap two flat pieces of wood.
  • Gong a spoon against a pie pan.
  • Scrape a rasp with ridged foil or vegetable box.
  • Bongo a can with plastic lid.
  • Clonk two yogurt or similar plastic jugs.
  • Rattle a can with plastic lid, with dry peas inside.

I’ll be chim-ing on my chim-er when I come; I’ll be chim-ing on my chim-er when I come.
I’ll be chim-ing on my chim-er, I’ll be chim-ing on my chim-er,
I’ll be chim-ing on my chim-er when I come.

I’ll be clapping on my clappers...
I’ll be gong-ing on my gong-er...
I’ll be scrap-ing on my scraper...
I’ll be bonging on my bongo...
I’ll be blowing comb and paper...
I’ll be clonking on my clonker...
I’ll be rattling on my rattle...
