Camp Grenada

Hello Mudda,
hello Fadda,
Here I am at
Camp Granada.
Camp is very
entertaining,
And they say we’ll have some fun if it stops raining.

I went hiking
with Joe Spivy;
He developed
poison ivy.
You remember
Lenard Skinner;
He got ptomaine poisoning last night after dinner.

All the counselors
hate the waiters,
And the lake has
alligators,
And the head coach
wants no sissies,
So he reads to us from something called Ulysses.

Now I don’t want
that this should scare you,
But my bunkmate
has malaria.
You remember
Jeffery Hardy,
They’re about to organize a searching party.

Take me home, oh
Mudda, Fadda,
Take me home, I
hate Granada!
Don’t leave me
out in the forest,
Where I might get eaten by a bear.

Take me home,
I promise I will not make noise,
Or mess the house
with other boys,
O please don’t
make me stay,
I’ve been here one whole day.

Dearest Father,
Darling Mother,
How’s my precious
little brudda?
Let me come home
if you miss me,
I would even let Aunt Bertha hug and kiss me.

Wait a minute,
it stopped hailing,
Guys are swimming,
guys are sailing.
Playing baseball,
gee that’s betta,
Mudda, Fadda kindly disregard this letta!

No reason for this post other than it made me smile!
