Up, Up, Up to the Top of the Bridge

This song was written from scratch September 13, 2009, during a Potluck Creative Arts Songwriting Workshop commissioned by Girl Scout Troop 10208. They were soon to move up from Brownies to Juniors and decided to write an original song to sing as part of the upcoming bridging ceremony. Writing the song took 75 minutes, starting only with the topic of moving up in Girl Scouts. Learn more about the Songwriting Workshop which uses Appreciative Inquiry to foster collaborative creativity.

Music and lyrics by Girl Scout Troop 10208 with Mark S. Meritt (facilitator)

The original workshop performance was by Girl Scout Troop 10208 and Mark on September 13, 2009.

Lyrics

In Brownies, our vests were brown
The prettiest we’d ever seen
But now we’re moving up to Juniors
Wearing cooler vests of green

Up, up, up to the top of the bridge
We’re feeling so proud
Though we’ve only grown a smidge
We’re screaming out loud

We’re getting much more advanced
With lots more opportunities
We’ve got a much larger chance
Of helping out more communities

Up, up, up to the top of the bridge
We’re feeling so proud
Though we’ve only grown a smidge
We’re screaming out loud

Up, up, up to the top of the bridge
We’re feeling so proud
Though we’ve only grown a smidge
We’re screaming out loud
Yeah!

    Is there anyway you can send the music for Up Up Up to the top of the Bridge. I love the song and would love my troop to sing this song during our ceremony. Thanks
