Walrus Hunt Song

Leader:
The Eskimo gets into his kayak and paddles with arms folded (move arms back and forth in paddling motion). Leader gives directions to Scouts who follow his action and then all sing chorus:

Chorus: Haukie taukie oom bah, haukie taukie oom bah,
Hey didle, hi diddle, ho diddle hey.
Haukie taukie oom bah, haukie taukie oom bah,
Hey didle, hi diddle, ho diddle hey.


Leader: Eskimo stops and sights for walrus with right hand turned so that he is sighting with the back of his hand shading his eyes while singing:

Chorus:

Leader: He gets within range, takes his walrus gun, aims, and sings:

Hey tacoma, mishawaukee-boom!
Hey tacoma, mishawaukee-boom!
Hey tacoma, mishawaukee-boom!

Chorus:

Leader: He gets alongside the walrus. It is heavy. he lifts it into his kayak and sings:

Hey tacoma, mishawaukee-ugh!
Hey tacoma, mishawaukee-ugh!
Hey tacoma, mishawaukee-ugh!

Chorus:

Leader: He paddles homeward slowly at first because of the heavy load, then picks up speed. Everybody is waiting to greet him. He waves to all, smiles a toothy smie singing:

Hey tacoma, mishawaukee!
Hey tacoma, mishawaukee!
Hey tacoma, mishawaukee!

Chorus:
