"Akela's Hat"©

You've done so much for this Pack, it's hard to keep the score,
Of all the different jobs you've had--and all the "hats" you wore.

Den Leader or Assistant; and then Cubmaster, too--
Whatever job we needed done, the Pack could count on you.

And now you're going on your way, some new things for to try,
Before you go we'd like to say, a big Scouting "Goodbye".

The Lion Cubs will all stand up, and they will start to Roar.
The Tiger Cubs will join right in; the noise will shake the floor.

The mighty Wolves will stand up, too, and they'll begin to Howl.
Then the Bears will wave their paws, and give a big Bear Growl.

Next there'll be a Scout Salute, from all the Webelos--
To show that you have taught them, to be always on their toes.

The Arrow of Light Scouts will stand, and they'll Salute you, too.
That's the way this Cub Scout Pack says, "Good Luck" to you.

Now there is just one more thing, we thought that you should know;
We never will forget you-- no matter where you go.

The Scouts will all remember you, how tall and proud you sat,
When you were their Cubmaster, and wore "Akela's Hat".
