CHILDREN'S CAMP SONG

CHORUS:
BOOM, BOOM AIN'T IT GREAT TO BE CRAZY
BOOM, BOOM AIN'T IT GREAT TO BE CRAZY
SILLY AND FOOLISH ALL DAY LONG
BOOM, BOOM AIN'T IT GREAT TO BE CRAZY
VERSES:
A HORSE AND A FLEA AND THREE BLIND MICE
SAT ON A TOMBSTONE SHOOTING DICE
THE HORSE HE SLIPPED AND FELL ON THE FLEA
AND THE FLEA SAID "WHOOPSIE THERE'S A HORSIE ON ME"
WAY UP NORTH IN THE ICE AND SNOW
THERE LIVED A PENGUIN BY THE NAME OF JOE
HE GOT SO TIRED OF BLACK AND WHITE
THAT HE WORE PINK SOCKS TO THE DANCE LAST NIGHT
WAY DOWN SOUTH WHERE BANANAS GROW
A MONKEY STEPPED ON AN ELEPHANT'S TOE
THE ELEPHANT SAID WITH A TEAR IN HIS EYE
"WHY DON'T YOU PICK ON SOMEBODY YOUR OWN SIZE"
ONE AFTERNOON IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT
TWO DEAD BOYS BEGAN TO FIGHT
A DEAF POLICEMAN HEARD THE NOISE
AND HE BEAT THE LIFE OUT OF TWO DEAD BOYS
