Manito Song

Hi Guides,

The following is the lyrics for the manito song. We will be singing the song during annual camp. Please look through and memorise the lyrics.

I love my manito yes I do x3
I love my manito but i won't say who
I've a feeling warm and gay as she cast her eyes my way.
I'll reveal her name some day but who she is I will not say.
