Unforgettable Camp Songs

Posted on

If you’ve ever worked at a summer camp then you know several camp songs.  You’ve sang these songs for an entire summer or more if you spent most of your summers working a camp.

some of these songs you love and some you dislike.

Some you may wish you could forget, but we all know that’s not going to happen.

So, here are only a few of those songs you love and possible dislike.

 

I’m A Little Piece of Tin

I’m a little piece of tin

Nobody knows where I have been

I’ve got four wheels and a running board

I’m a four door, I’m a Ford

Honk, honk, rattle, rattle, rattle, crash, beep, beep

Honk, honk, rattle, rattle, rattle, crash, beep, beep

Honk, honk, rattle, rattle, rattle, crash, beep, beep

Honk, honk

 

Herman the Worm 

I was sittin’ on my fencepost, chewing my bubblegum

(chew, chew, chew, chew)

Playin’ with my yo-yo, wee-oo! wee-oo!

When along came Herman the worm

And he was this big (make a motion as if measuring a tiny worm)

And I said: “Herman? What happened?”

“I ate a bird.”

 

I was sittin’ on my fencepost, chewing my bubblegum

(chew, chew, chew, chew)

Playin’ with my yo-yo, wee-oo! wee-oo!

When along came Herman the worm

And he was this big (make a motion as if measuring a little bit bigger worm)

And I said: “Herman? What happened?”

“I ate a mouse.”

 

I was sittin’ on my fencepost, chewing my bubblegum

(chew, chew, chew, chew)

Playin’ with my yo-yo, wee-oo! wee-oo!

When along came Herman the worm

And he was this big (make a motion as if measuring a bigger worm)

And I said: “Herman? What happened?”

“I ate a cat.”

 

I was sittin’ on my fencepost, chewing my bubblegum

(chew, chew, chew, chew)

Playin’ with my yo-yo, wee-oo! wee-oo!

When along came Herman the worm

And he was this big (make a motion as if measuring a bigger worm)

And I said: “Herman? What happened?”

“I ate a dog.”

 

I was sittin’ on my fencepost, chewing my bubblegum

(chew, chew, chew, chew)

Playin’ with my yo-yo, wee-oo! wee-oo!

When along came Herman the worm

And he was this big (make a motion as if measuring a really big worm)

And I said: “Herman? What happened?”

“I ate a cow.”

 

I was sittin’ on my fencepost, chewing my bubblegum

(chew, chew, chew, chew)

Playin’ with my yo-yo, wee-oo! wee-oo!

When along came Herman the worm

And he was this big (make a motion as if measuring for a tiny worm again)

And I said: “Herman? What happened?”

“I burped.”

 

Annie Mae

Annie Mae where are you going?

Upstairs to take a bath.

Annie Mae has legs like toothpicks.

And a neck like a giraffe.

 

Annie Mae steps in the bathtub.

Annie Mae pulls out the plug.

Oh my goodness, Oh my soul,

There goes Annie Mae down that hole.

 

Annie Mae, Annie Mae,

Bluh, Bluh, Bluh.

 

GA Cutie Pie

I’m a GA, GA cutie, cutie pie

And I’ll be one until the day I die,( til I die)

Oh, there’s no doubt about it

And I love to shout it

I’m a GA, GA cutie pie

CUTIE PIE!
