Thread Name: Lyr ADD: Ging Gang Goolie (Robert Baden-Powell ??)
Subject: RE: ging gang gooly
Ahm me! Heavan!

The Opies mention "Ging, gang, gooly" as a Guides song in their book "The Singing Game," but give no other information. English origin? It also is the title of a story, "Ging Gang Goolie, the Great Grey Ghost Elephant." Author not known to me. Ging Gang Song

Scout origin? I remember when the South African Scouts came to a Jamboree here years ago. They sang adaptations of African songs, but I doubt that this one fit into that category.
