Junior Birdmen

This one has been sitting on the back burner since Christmas!  Over the holidays while hanging out with my family we were discussing our trip to Hawaii this coming summer.  Being a long journey I suggested we could sing scout camp songs.  At which point I began to sing "Junior Birdmen".  Unfortunately I couldn't remember all of the works and none of my siblings seemed to have any knowledge of this gem.  Well, now they can all learn it along with me and our travels will be that much more enjoyable!

Junior Birdmen

(Tune: On Brave Old Army Team)

Up in the air, Junior Birdmen; up in the air, upside down,
Up in the air, Junior Birdmen; with your noses to the ground.

And when you hear the grand announcement: that your wings are made of tin.
Well, then you know, Junior Birdmen, it's time to send your box tops in.

For it takes: 5 box tops, 4 bottle bottoms, 3 coupons, 2 wrappers, and one thin dime!

Actions: Make a face mask each time you sing the words, "Junior Birdmen" by lacing your fingers. Then, with thumbs under the chin, twist your hands outwards so that you make goggles for the eyes. On "Upside down," perform a jet plane swoop outstretched arms. On "Ground," bring the swooping arms as near to the ground as possible.
