Pass It On
(Note: This is a boy scout campfire song that Steve performed at Cornerstone 1994
To the tune of Steppenwolf's "Born To Be Wild", with slightly altered lyrics)


It only takes a spark to get a fire going
And soon all those around can warm up to its glowing
That's how it is with Scouting
Once you've experienced it
You spread your joy to everyone
You want to pass it on

What a wondrous time is spring when all the trees are budding
The birds begin to sing, the flowers start their blooming
That's how it is with Scouting
Once you've experienced it
You want to sing, it's fresh like spring
You want to pass it on

Like a true nature's child
We were born to pass it on
We can fly so high
We're never gonna die

Pass it on
Born to pass it on

I wish for you my friend, this happiness that I've found
You can come join in, it matters not where you're bound
I'll shout it from the mountain tops
I want the world to know
The joy of friends has come to me
I want to pass it on

Like a true nature's child
We were born to pass it on
We can fly so high
We're never gonna die

Pass it on
Born to pass it on
