Retired Scouter Campfire Songs 


Scout Camp


The buses that you ride in, they say are mightly fine
But when they turn a corner, they leave the wheels behind
Oh, I don't want to go to . . . Scout Camp
Please, Skip, I want to go, but they won't let me go
Please, Skip, I want to go home
Alternative Chorus: I don't wanna go to Scout Camp
Mommy, I wanna go back where the toilets flow
Mommy, I wanna go ho-o-ome
The leaders that they have here, they say are mighty fine
But when you get up closer, they look like frankenstein
The Leaders that they have here, they say they're really fine
But when you ask a question, they say "get back in line"
The first aid that they give you, they say is mighty fine
But if you cut your finger, you're left with only nine
The first aid that they give you, they say is mighty fine
But when you break a finger, they break the other nine
The water that they have here they say is mighty fine
But when you try to drink it, it tastes like turpentine
The biscuits that they serve you, they say are mighty fine
But one rolled off the table and killed a friend of mine
The spagetti that they serve you, they say is mighty fine
They rinse it the toilet and drain it on the line
The chicken in the army, they say is mighty fine
But once two drumsticks got up, and started beating time
The cocoa that they serve you, they say is mighty fine
It's good for cuts and bruises and tastes like iodine
The tents that you sleep in, they say are mighty fine
But whoever said this has never slept in mine
The toilets that they have here are the best that they can get
Last night my tent mate had to go, they haven't found him/her yet
They say that in the army, the girls are mighty fine
You ask for Farrah Fawcett, they give you Frankenstein
