[Instrumental intro]

Herky: To be a proper Chopper Scout,
You've got to do a good deed,
A very good deed,
An exceptional deed.
You've got to find somebody somewhere,
An incredible need,
And show up like a proper Chopper Scout.

When I become a Chopper Scout,
I'll do a hundred good deeds,
Even more if ya please,
And unbelievable speeds.
And when I do my first deed,
I'll have a badge that will read,
"Herky is a real Chopper Scout."

A real, proper chopper,
A brave, fearless copter,
Herky is a real Chopper Scout.

And when they choose old Herk to join the troop,
They soon will find out,
There was never a doubt,
He's a real Chopper Scout.
And when I do my first deed,
I'll have a badge that will read,
"Herky is a real Chopper Scout."

A real, proper chopper,
A brave, fearless copter...
Herky is a real Chopper Scout.

Oh, boy!
