Camp Songs

The Hippo Song

Oh what can make
a hippopotomus smile
oh what can make
her walk for more than a mile
it isnt a ride on a slippery slide
or goin out for a bicycle ride
that's not what hippo's do
they ooze and they gooze with out any shoes
they wade in the water til their lips turn blue
that's what makes a hippopotomus smile
oh what can make
a hippopotomus smile
oh what can make
her walk for more than a mile
it isnt a party with the paper hats
or a birthday cake that will make her fat
that's not what hippos do
they ooze and they gooze with out any shoes
they wade in the water til their lips turn blue
that's what makes a hippopotomus smile

Every where we go people want to know
who we are so we tell them
we are the _(cabin name here)_'s
the mighty mighty _(cabin name)_'s
(repeat...)

Rain Hail Lightning Thunder
__(cabin name here)__ won't go under
better better than the rest
___(cabin)__ is the best!
(repeat as desired....)

We're from camp Barton and our tribes the best tribe
we fight the camp Joslin they're barely 4 feet
They try to beat us but they can't defeat us
'cuz we're from camp Barton and we're off the wall...
Singing oom bow wow, oom bow wow
oom bow wow oom bow wow
We're from camp Barton and we're off the wall.
Singing oom bow wow oom bow wow
oom bow wow oom bow wow we're from camp Barton and we're off the wall

We're the girls from Barton Camp

We're the girls from Barton Camp you hear so much about
the people always look at us whenever we go out
we're noted for our wisdom and the naughty things we do
but what the heck to do we care
the boys are naughty too

as we go marching
and the band begins to P-L-A-Y
you'll hear us shouting
the girls from Barton camp are on their wa-a-ay

(said fast>oh the barton bunch is the truest and the best
we keep things going and we never take a rest
we have one yell and we yell it all the time
it goes like this- CAMP BARTON FOREVER!!

Wiener song

I know a wiener man
he owns a wiener stand
he sells most everything from hot dogs to clams (boom boom boom)
and in my later life
i'll be his wiener wife
hot dog i love that wiener man

BYE BYE LONG JOHNS


[Tune: Bye Bye Birdie]
I just lost my underwear; I don't care, I'll go bare.
Bye bye long johns.
They were very close to me-tickled me (hee, hee, hee).
Bye bye long johns.
How I miss that old trap door behind me.
When you see them you'll know where to find me.
I just lost my underwear; I'll go bare, I don't care.
Long johns, bye bye.

BARGES


Out of my window looking in the night,
I can see the barges' flickering light.
Silently flows the river to the sea,
As the barges do go silently.

CHORUS
Barges, I would like to go with you,
I would like to sail the ocean blue.
barges, have you treasure in your hold,
Do you fight with pirates brave and bold.
Out of my window looking in the night,
I can see the barges flickering light.
Starboard shines green and port is glowing red,
I can see the barges far ahead.

GOPHER GUTS

[Tune: The Old Gray Mare]
Great green gobs of greasy grimy gopher guts, mutilated monkey meat, dirty little pigeon's feet.
All mixed up with a pile of poison possum pus, and me without my spoon.
And me without my spoon; and me without spoon.
Great green gobs of greasy grimy gopher guts, and me without my spoon. [We'll use a straw!]

I MET A BEAR

[Tune: Sipping Cider Through a Straw]
The other day, [echo] I met a bear, [echo]
Out in the woods, away out there. [Point.]
He looked at me, I looked at him,
He sized up me, I sized up him.
He says to me, "Why don't you run?"
"'Cause I can see, you have no gun."
I says to him, "That's a good idea."
"Now legs get going, get me out of here!"
I began to run, away from there,
But right behind me was that bear.
And on the path ahead of me,
I saw a tree, Oh glory be.
The lowest branch was ten feet up,
I'd have to jump and trust to luck.
And so I jumped into the air,
But I missed that branch away up there.
Now don't you fret, and don't you frown,
I caught that branch on the way back down.
That's all there is, there ain't no more,
Unless I meet that bear once more.

FROGGIE / FLEA FLY


Dog.
Dog, cat.
Dog, cat, mouse.
Froggie!
Itsy bitsy, teeny weeny little bitty froggie.
Jump, jump, jump, little froggie.
Spiders and flies are scrum-deli-icious.
Ribbit, Ribbit, Ribbit, Ribbit, Ribbit, Ribbit, Ribbit,
Croak.

ALICE THE CAMEL


Alice the camel has 10 humps, Alice the camel has 10 humps
Alice the camel has 10 humps, so go, Alice, GO!!
Bom Bom Bom...
[Continue with 9, 8, 7 . . . humps, until . . . ]
Alice the camel has no humps, Alice the camel has no humps
Alice the camel has no humps, 'cause Alice is a HORSE!!

MY BONNIE LIES OVER THE OCEAN


My Bonnie lies over the ocean,
My Bonnie lies over the sea,
My Bonnie lies over the ocean,
Oh bring back my Bonnie to me.
Bring back, bring back,
Oh bring back my Bonnie to me, to me; [x2]

[Action: As you sing each word beginning with the letter B, change from a standing to a sitting position and vice versa. All should be standing at the end of the song. When you have mastered these movements, sing it again, faster.]
