The Battle of Camp Kookamonga (J.J. Reynolds) In Nineteen and Fifty-Nine we took a little hike With our scoutmaster down to Lake [*Amiga-mike] We took a little Pizza and we took some Sauerkrauts And we marched along together til we heard the Girl Scouts. 1ST CHORUS We're the boys from Camp Kookamonga Our mothers sent us here for to study nature's ways We learned to make sparks by rubbin' sticks together But if we catch the girls, then we'll set the woods ablaze. (Spoken:) And I was mad 'cause me mother sent me up here! hah! hah! hah! hah!) Well, we crept up to the water and we see'd the girls a-swimmin' There musta been a hunderd of 'em, purty young women They looked so fine, even birds forgot to sing We laid down in the Poison Oak and didn't say a thing. CHORUS (S:) Hey, will one of you fellars scratch my back?) Well, our councellor said we could take 'em by surprise If we didn't say a word til we looked 'em in the eyes We kept real still and we had our eyes a-glued We saw how they were dressed They were swimmin' in the ____ Well, now; CHORUS 2ND CHORUS Well they ran thru the briars and they ran thru the brambles And they ran thru the bushes where a Rabbit couldn't go They ran so fast even we couldn't catch 'em From Lake [*Amiga-mike] all the way to Buffalo. (S:) Hey, fellers, wait for me!) Well, we ran right after them til ev'ryone was pooped So we rested for a minute and our forces we re-grouped Then we saw the girls behind some Evergreens Captured by a company of United States Marines. CHORUS (S:) Aw, them big guys get ever'thing!) 2ND CHORUS A Rootie-Toot-Toot (A Rootie-Toot-Toot) We're the boys from the Boy Scout Troop We don't smoke and we don't chew And we don't go with the girls that do. (WHOOIE!: Hootin' & hollerin' & fade) (*sounds like-rhymes with hike?) GG Recorded by Homer & Jethro Apr98
