Baden-Powell is said to have written this song during the 1st World Scout Jamboree in 1920. The song used gibberish to ensure that children from different countries could sing the song irrespective of what their mother tongue is. The tune is based on an extract from Mozart’s Symphony No.1.

Lyrics

Ging gang goolie goolie goolie goolie
Watcha, ging gang goo, ging gang goo.
