Princess Pat   Princess Pat Song   Scout Song

This Song is meant for Boy Scouts.
Decide for yourself if it is appropriate for your younger scouts or not.
Lyrics:
This song is comprised of obfuscated verses from the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry regiment. See their regimental website. The verses here are a sample of one of the many different ways the song is now sung. See original verses at the end of this page for historical reference.


The Princess Pat (Egyptian hand movement & hips)

Lived in a tree (Arms up over heads, making a tree bow)
She sailed across (wave hands over water)
The seven seas (Seven fingers, wave hands over water)

She sailed across (Repeat hand wave over water)

the Channel too (thumb and finger channel, two fingers)
and she took with her (sling bag over shoulder)

a rickabamboo (hands wave down move hips)

CHORUS

A rickabamboo (hands wave down)

Now what is that?
Its a something made
 (move fists one on top of the other)
By the Princess Pat (repeat Egyptian move)

Its a red and gold (hand on right hip)

and a purple too (hand on left hip)

That's why its called
a rickabamboo (repeat motion)

Now Captain Jack (stand at Alert)

Had a mighty fine crew (salute)

They sailed across the channel too (as above)

but their ship sank (hold noses and move body down
)
and your's will too (point out and finger two)

if you don't take (sling bag over shoulder)

a rickabamboo (hands wave down)
(CHORUS)

The Princess Pat, saw Captain Jack.
She reeled him in, and brought him back.
She saved his life, and his crew's too,
And do y know how?- with the rickabamboo!
(CHORUS)




The Princess Pat's Battalion
They sailed across the Herring Pond,
They sailed across the Channel too,
And landed there with the Ric-A-Dam-Doo
Dam-Doo, Dam-Doo.

The Princess Pat's Battalion Scouts
They never knew their whereabouts.
If there's a pub within a mile or two,
You'll find them there with the Ric-A-Dam-Doo,
Dam-Doo, Dam-Doo.

The Lewis Guns are always true
To every call of the Ric-A-Dam-Doo.
They're always there with a burst or two
Whenever they see the Ric-A-Dam-Doo,
Dam-Doo, Dam-Doo.

The Bombers of the Princess Pat's
Are scared of naught, excepting rats,
They're full of pep and dynamite too,
They'd never lose the Ric-A-Dam-Doo,
Dam-Doo, Dam-Doo.

The Transport of the Princess Pat's
Are all dressed up in Stetson hats.
They shine their brass and limbers too
I believe they'd shine the Ric-A-Dam-Doo,
Dam-Doo, Dam-Doo.

Old Number Three, our company
We must fall in ten times a day.
If we fell out 'twould never do
For then wed lose the Ric-A-Dam-Doo,
Dam-Doo, Dam-Doo.

Old Charlie S., our Major dear,
Who always buys us rum and beer,
If there's a trench in a mile or two
You'll find him there with the Ric-A-Dam-Doo,
Dam-Doo, Dam-Doo.

Old Ackity-Ack, our Colonel grand,
The leader of this noble band,
He'd go to Hell and charge right through
Before he'd lose the Ric-A-Dam-Doo,
Dam-Doo, Dam-Doo.

Old Hammy Gault, our first PP,
He led this band across the sea,
He'd lose an arm, or leg or two
Before he'd lose the Ric-A-Dam-Doo,
Dam-Doo, Dam-Doo.

And then we came to Sicily.
We leapt ashore with vim and glee.
The Colonel said the Wops are through
Let's chase the Hun with the Ric-A-Dam-Doo,
Dam-Doo, Dam-Doo.

The Ric-A-Dam-Doo, pray what is that?
'Twas made at home by Princess Pat,
It's Red and Gold and Royal Blue,
That's what we call the Ric-A-Dam-Doo,
Dam-Doo, Dam-Doo.
