Camp Songs

Hi, I don't know if anyone has myspace, but I am a moderator for a camp group and I just wanted to let everyone know about it and invite you to come join. If nothing else, just come check it out.:)

It's called I Heart Camp!

Another Pirate camp song [Jul. 21st, 2006|08:01 am]
Camp Songs

We are a bloody pirate band
The most ferocious in the land
We cut off arms and legs and feet
In order that we may eat meat
Raw meat!

Nightly we roam the Carib shore
That's where we spill our filthy gore
Slime! Bodies slithering in the deep
The lives of men are cheap
Most cheap!

A piratey song! [Jul. 20th, 2006|04:31 pm]
Camp Songs

When I was 1!!! (the leader only)

I shot a gunI put my hair in a bunI was covered in rum! (everyone yells their own response that rhymes)

...the day I went to sea,
I climbed aboard a pirate ship and the captain said to me,
"We're going this way, that way, forward, backward, over the Irish sea,"
A 7-up to fill me up and That's the life for me!

When I was 2!!!

Didn't know what to doI swallowed my shoeMy cow went moo!

...the day I went to sea,
I climbed aboard a pirate ship and the captain said to me,
"We're going this way, that way, forward, backward, over the Irish sea,"
A 7-up to fill me up and That's the life for me!

When I was 3!!! (Etc.)

Does anyone know where I can find tunes to some slow camp songs? There's a lot of lyrics in my camp songbook that I like but don't know the tunes for. Some of these include:
Canadian Wilderness
Christopher Robin
Daisies in the Sun
Human Touch
Ghost Riders
I'd love to learn the tunes for these so to expand my campfire repertoire.

Pray without ceasing.... [Jun. 10th, 2006|11:19 am]
Camp Songs

[Current Mood |worriedworried]

Please please please lift sweet Jacob and his family in your prayers today. Jacob has a rare cancer of the adrenal gland, called adrenalcortical carcinoma. He's 6 years old, and was diagnosed when he was just 3. He's been on a vent for quite some time now, and is in desperate need of a miracle. The strength and faith of his family are amazing. This is a quote from his mom's journal entry this morning:
"Jacob is dangerously teetering on the edge of that darn cliff and I’m not sure any of us can reach him to pull him back - no matter how long our chain of support is! However I realized today something very important. IF Jacob falls - he will be caught in the loving arms of Jesus and he will without a doubt be okay. In fact he will be better than okay - he will be absolutely PERFECT. He will no longer be sick with tubes sticking out all over and he will feel nothing but extreme JOY . . . Things we can not offer him on this earth."

Jacob's website is: http://www.caringbridge.org/fl/jacob I know his family is SO appreciative of the prayers and support!

Two other boys in desperate need of prayers today are: Jake and Will

"Alleghany Blue"? [Feb. 20th, 2006|08:52 pm]
Camp Songs

[Current Mood |bouncybouncy]

Hey, all. First post here, so hi and all that.

A friend is trying to find the words to a song she learned at Camp Rushford, which is a Department of Environmental Conservation camp. She remembers it being called "Alleghany Blue". The chorus goes something like, "round we go round..."

I know that it's vague, but any help would be greatly appreciated. Google's failed me so far with this task, so I thought I'd ask here. Thanks to anyone who can help!

[Current Mood |contentcamp happy]

So.....it IS in the middle of January, and camp just seems so far away.
*sigh* So, my name's Savvy! (yes, my name has the ! init--how chill is that?!) or you can call me savver, or savv, or savvy!licious--just not savage. grr. I am from Camp Robbinswold located on the shores of b-e-a-uuuutiful Hood Canal. hello.

So I'm in a bind--I'm not goin' back this upcoming summer and that is tre's sad, but I'm a little camp sick and I'm lookin' for some slow songs to make me happy and to sing while I look at some old pics.

Also to just say hi. :)

Ore the waters we have come
To join in gaiety
Here the Mts rise so high
and here the wind blows free

Ore the waters singing
Hear our laughter ringing
Echoes softly bringing back a melody...

Camp of royal beauty
Robbinswold, we salute thee
May we always know thy
Rugged majesty

I have heard a story somewhere that this song is specific to the camp I work at, that a group of girls wrote it as their intro skit a while back, so I'm just curious if anyone else has ever heard it:

I've got a daisy on my toe
It is not real, it does not grow
It's just a tattoo of a flower
So I look cute while taking a shower
It's on the 2nd toe of my left foot
It has no stem, it has no root
'cause it wouldn't look cute
I got a daisy on my toe
It is not real, it does not grow
