"A Bachelor for Baden Powell" as written by Leslie George Carter, James Neil Morrison and Ralph Reader....
Join the cubs
See the world
Pay your subs
Meet the girls
Sell your toys
Be reborn
They love a boy in uniform
37 wasted years
Closeting his greatest fears
Still in shorts and eating jelly
He used to come and fix our telly

Akela, Akela
I will do my best
Akela, you'll have heart failure
Get your hands out of my vest

The oldest joker in the pack
Knew how to fold a union jack
Bought me chocolate, cakes and sweets
All the Cadbury's Flakes that I could eat

Akela, Akela
I will do my best
Akela, you'll have heart failure
Get your hands out of my vest

You're a bachelor for Baden Powell
And you don't know where I've been
Take your spatula and your bathing towel
And go swear your allegance to the queen

You'll get no badge for touching me
Bad health or inefficiency
Hallitosis, poison breath
Or scaring little lonely boys to death

Akela, Akela I wil do my best
Akela, Akela
You've got to get me off your chest

Akela, Akela
I think that it's time to go
Hayla Shayla, see ya later
I'm only nine years old and the answer's NO!

You're a bachelor for Baden Powell
And you don't know where I've been
So take your spatula and your bathing towel
And go swear your allegance to the queen
