The Five World Centres and Song

Hello Owl & Toadstool viewers! 
 Did you know that there is a Fifth World Centre? 
Yes, there is a fifth World Centre in Africa called Kusafiri.
The Fifth World Centre in Africa
"Kusafiri World Centre is a project exploring how WAGGGS can bring a World Centre experience using existing facilities in Africa. The ‘centre’ has no fixed site but changes location at every event, creating international experiences to girls and young women in different countries in Africa".

This fifth World Centre was established in 2010 and in October 2015 was officially named Kusafiri. Kusafiri means 'to journey' in Swahili.  For more information on how Kusafiri World Centre came to be see the above link.

I will need to change the name of my song "The Four World Centres"  to "The Five World Centres" to include Kusafiri.  What rhymes with Kusafiri...hmmm...LOL...I will come up with something.  I am not sure how to pronounce Kusafiri either...is it Ku-sa-furry or Ku-sa-feary??

Action Song:  THE FOUR WORLD CENTRES
by Guider Lee Ann 

*chorus*
Who knows about the four World Centres?
Who knows about the four World Centres?
Who knows about the four World Centres?
All the Girl Guides Do!

Pax Lodge, London England
Pax Lodge, London England
Pax Lodge, London England
And It's name means "Peace"

*chorus*

Swit-zer-land, has Our Chalet
Swit-zer-land, has Our Chalet
Swit-zer-land, has Our Chalet
"Shelter on the Mountain"

*chorus*

Sangam, near Pune India
Sangam, near Pune India
Sangam, near Pune India
It means "Coming Together"

*chorus*

Mex-i-co,  has Our Cabana
Mex-i-co,  has Our Cabana
Mex-i-co,  has Our Cabana
"A small Cabin by the Stream"

*chorus*

*Who knows about the four World Centres?
Who knows about the four World Centres?
Who knows about the four World Centres?
All the Girl Guides Do!

I've just updated the song and it sounds like this...
(the tune is a bit like Boa Constrictor}

The Five World Centres 
{lyrics by Lee Ann Fraser 2016}

*Chorus*
Who knows ABOUT the Five World Centres? 
Who knows ABOUT the Five World Centres? 
Who Knows ABOUT the Five World Centres? 
All -the -Girl -Guides dooooo. 


(All the Girl Guides do-oo-oo is sung slower and "do" is a longer note.
 I do not know anything about writing lyrics or composing music so bare with me)

*New last verse*
Af-ri-ca has Ku-sa-fi-ri, 
Af-ri-ca has Ku-sa-fi-ri, 
Af-ri-ca has Ku-safi-ri. 
To-Jour-ney in Swa-hi-li.

(action for the new last verse is to alternately slap your hands on your thighs 
left-right-left-right to the beat to symbolize African drumming}

If you are totally confused about the tune and actions of 
my homemade song go to my original post
