STORY OF GING GANG GOOLIE
Lord Baden-Powell is said to have written this song during the 1st World Scout Jamboree in 1920.

Dorothy Unterschutz, a Canadian Scout Leader, later invented the story to explain the song's lyrics.


The Great Grey Ghost Elephant would roam the villages every year after the rains. The villagers believed that if it went round their village, they would enjoy a prosperous year. But if it went through their village, they would suffer a year of drought.

 
The Ghost Elephant had been going through the village of Wat Cha for the last 3 years. Therefore, the villagers came up with a plan to deter the Ghost Elephant from entering their village. The village leader, Ging Gang, and his men would firghten the Elephant by standing in its path and shaking their spears and shields.

The village medicine man, Shayla,and his men, would cast magic spells and frighten the Elephant by producing the "Shally Wally" sound by shaking their magical equipment.

When the Ghost Elephant arrived, the villagers started shouting the name of their leader, Ging Gang, while Shayla and his men did their magic spells. They were successful in their plan, and the Elephant went around their village, making the sound "Oompah Oompah"
