(11th World Jamboree, Marathon, Greece 1963)

Quick to the call "Be Prepared"
Come the Scouts today
You'll find wherever the need
They are there
They lend a strong helping hand
While they sing a song
And bring a bright smile to help things a long.


Jamboree, Jamboree,
All the Scouts are singing hear their joyous song,
Jamboree, Jamboree,
All the Scouts are gath'ring now at Marathon.
Jamboree, Jamboree,
Bright the sky above us as we march along,
Jamboree, Jamboree,
Blue the sea before us here at Marathon.

They come from homes far away
With a will to fight,
Though not for lands or for gain
But for right
And then united as one
To aim high for good
And to scout wide for world brotherhood.


When at the end of the day
We have worked and played,
And while we think of the friends
We have made,
We all just sit side by side
In the peaceful night,
And we shall sing bij the campfire light.
