Camp songs

| | Comments (1)
About once a year an old camp song pops into my head and I don't know why. It's always the same song too: Great Green Gobs. Sing along, you probably know it.
Great green gobs of greasy grimey gopher guts,
marinated monkey meat,
chopped up parakete.
Fried up eye balls
dipped in a booger box
sold at your favorite store.
Only this time I stopped to think about the lyrics. What the hell is a booger box? Why is it my favorite store. I figured maybe there was some kind of story about it - similar to the eenie meenie miney moe song - but all google revealed was a list of variations on the lyrics. I like to think mine is the correct translation and all others are heretics that shall burn for all eternity.

But reminiscing about camp is always fun. The sailing. Letting little kids play with deadly weapons. "Building character" by scaling a three story wall using nothing but twigs.

Of course now I'm sitting at work with "Once an austrian went yodelling" stuck in my head. Better than having "I saw Esaw" there though... damnit.


funny you should mention that. this morning i had chicken lips and lizard hips and alligator eyes monkey legs and buzzard eggs and salamander thighs rabbit ears and camel rears and tasty toenail pies stir 'em all together... it's mama's soup surprise stuck in my head. haven't heard that since i was ten.
