    Boogaloo is quite fun. More of an action call out thing than a song.

    Let me see your Boogaloo!
    What did you say?
    I said let me see your Boogaloo!
    A Boogaloo, a boo Boogaloo

    Crocodile, Croc Croc adile

    Funky chicken, funk funky chicken

    A dracula, drac dracula

    Etc, doing the dance/actions all the way back to Boogaloo each time.

    Thinking back to my last year of primary school, there was also the verse:

    "It flew in the sunshine, it flew in the mist,
    And when it got back from the pub it was..."

    Worth being aware of if the young folk lead the song themselves!

    This is becoming a 'Scouting classic'. For some reason they tend to sing 'Bungalow' around these parts. Must be a corruption, as I have never heard of a dance called a Bungalow, though please correct me if I am wrong!

    See we do a different Bungalow! Which goes kind of like:

    BUN-GA-LOWW
    BUN-GA-LOWW

    My hands are high (hands in the air), my hands are low (hands by knees) and this is how I bungalow (do an action)

    Their hands are high, their hands are low and this is how they bungalow (repeat movements as above)

    BUN-GA-LOW etc. Not my favourite, gets stuck in my head for days!

    For the record, this went down an absolute blast! Apparently, they were still singing it the following morning over breakfast...

    The one to the tune of the Muppets song (Mana Mana) - about a baby shark, a mummy shark, a grandma shark etc - then man's a-fishing, boat's a-rocking, man's a swimming... ending with "body parts". All with the appropriate actions. Caused much hilarity at the last campfire I went to!

    I can't find the exact version we sang anywhere on t'interwebs, but there are various other versions.
