Three Chartreuse Buzzards

Suggested by Steve Kline
Here's a song we sing at Wente Scout Reservation in Willits, CA.

Three (hold up 3 fingers) chartreuse buzzards,
Three (hold up 3 fingers) chartreuse buzzards,
Three (hold up 3 fingers) chartreuse buzzards,
Sitting in a dead tree. (Pose as a dead tree)
Oh, look (point somewhere up) one has flown a-way, what a-shame (sweep finger across the sky)

Two (hold up 2 fingers) chartreuse buzzards,
Two (hold up 2 fingers) chartreuse buzzards,
Two (hold up 2 fingers) chartreuse buzzards,
Sitting in a dead tree
Oh, look (point somewhere up) one has flown a-way, what a-shame (sweep finger across the sky)

One (hold up 1 fingers) chartreuse buzzards,
One (hold up 1 fingers) chartreuse buzzards,
One (hold up 1 fingers) chartreuse buzzards,
Sitting in a dead tree
Oh, look (point somewhere up) one has flown a-way, what a-shame (sweep finger across the sky)

No (shake head no) chartreuse buzzard,
No (shake head no) chartreuse buzzard,
No (shake head no) chartreuse buzzard,
Sitting in a dead tree
Oh, look one has returned, let us rejoice (faster with enthusiasm)

One chartreuse buzzard,
One chartreuse buzzard,
One chartreuse buzzard,
Sitting in a dead tree,
Oh, look one has returned, let us rejoice

Two chartreuse buzzards,
Two chartreuse buzzards,
Two chartreuse buzzards,
Sitting in a dead tree,
Oh, look one has returned, let us rejoice

Three chartreuse buzzards,
Three chartreuse buzzards,
Three chartreuse buzzards,
Sitting in a dead tree.
