Camp Songs

These are a few of my favorite camp songs.

 

Addams Family Thanks

Duh duh duh duh, [snap, snap]
Duh duh duh duh, [snap, snap]
Duh duh duh duh, duh duh duh duh, duh duh duh duh, [snap, snap]

We thank you Lord for giving,
The things we need for living,
The food, the fun, the friendship,
The Scouting Family.

Duh duh duh duh, [snap, snap]
Duh duh duh duh, [snap, snap]
Duh duh duh duh, duh duh duh duh, duh duh duh duh, [snap, snap]

[Say Amen on the last two snaps.]

 

Cheerios Thanks
Tune: Edelweiss

Cheerios, Cheerios,
Every morning you greet me.
Small and round, toasty brown,
You look happy to meet me.

Bowls full of milk, how you sink and float,
Sink and float forever.
Cheerios, Cheerios,
Bless my breakfast forever.

Flicker

The flicker of a campfire, the wind in the pines;
the stars in the heavens, the moon that shines.
A place where people gather, make friends of all kind
A place where all our troubles are always left behind.

So, give me the light of a campfire, warm and bright.
And give me some friends to sing with I’ll be here all night.
Love’s for those who find it I found mine right here
Just you and me and the campfire and songs we love to hear.
Da da, da da da da da da da,

Love is like a warm fire, soft and low
And when you find your true love, your heart will really know
And as the leaves start falling and friends begin to part
the memory of each summer will live within our hearts

 

Linger

Mmmm I wanna linger,
Mmmm a little longer
Mmmm a little longer here with you

Mmmm it’s such a perfect night
Mmmm it doesn’t seem quite right
Mmmm that this should be my last with you

Mmmm and as the years go by
Mmmm I’ll think of you and sigh
Mmmm this is goodnight and not goodbye

Mmmm and come September
Mmmm we’ll all remember
Mmmm our camping days and friendships too

Mmmm I wanna linger,
Mmmm a little longer
Mmmm a little longer here with you.

 

Taps

Day is done, gone the sun,
From the lake, from the hills,
From the sky;
All is well, safely rest,
God is nigh.

 

Vespers
Tune: Oh, Christmas Tree

Softly falls the light of day, as our campfire fades away.
Silently each scout should ask, “Have I done my daily task?
Have I kept my honor bright? Can I guiltless sleep tonight?
Have I done and have I dared, ev’rything to be prepared?”

Stars have come to end the day, daylight fading fast away.
All our work and play is done, time to rest for everyone.
Thanking God for everything, time to laugh and time to sing.
It’s been a day we won’t forget, make tomorrow better yet.
