BSA's 8 Point Safe Swim Defense


WARNING: Singing the original lyrics to Suffocation may lead to flunking your board of review. It is highly recommended that you instead sing these precautionary lyrics.

Qua-li-fi-ed super-duper-vision,

And you need to be physcially fit,

Need a lookout looking out,

And two lifeguards (to) pull you out,

Safe area, ability groups,


And you need to discipline your buddy,

Now you're swimming very, very safe.
