The Mottoes of the Boy Scouts

The Mottoes of the Boy Scouts

If you lie not on the grass

Twins will never come to pass.

When the wind is in the south

Slap your sister in the mouth.

Be polite, you must enthuse

At scout-master’s home-made booze.

Always be quick and alert

Jerking up a lady’s skirt.

Always be polite, the more

If the lady is a whore.

When the man’s a dirty varlet

Be assured his wife’s a harlot.

Three men—a crook, a fool, a brute—

Thre girls—two fools, a prostitute.

Always be polite, you boob,

That’s a sure sign of a rube.
