The Battle Of Kookamonga:Homer And Jethro.
#14 in 1959.
             (Capo 1st fret.)

#1.
C                             F
In nineteen and fifty-nine we took a little hike,
     G                        C
with our scout master down to Lake Oneeganite.
C                             F
We took a little pizza and we took some saurkrauts,
       G                              C
and we marched along together till we heard the Girl Scouts.

CHORUS:
C
We are the boys from Camp Kookamonga.
                                G              C
Our mothers sent us here for to study nature's ways.
C
We learned to make sparks by rubbing sticks together.
                                     G              C
But if we catch the girls then we'll set the woods ablaze.

(And I was mad because me mother sent me up here, ha-ha-ha.)

#2.
C                                     F
Well, we crept up to the water and we see the girls a-swimmin.
      G                            C
There musta been a hundred of them pretty young women.
C                        F
They looked so fine even birds forgot to sing..
   G                              C
we lay down in the Poison Oak and didn't say a thing.

(Hey will one of you fellas scratch my back?)

CHORUS:
C
We are the boys from Camp Kookamonga.
                                G              C
Our mothers sent us here for to study nature's ways.
C
We learned to make sparks by rubbing sticks together.
                                     G              C
But if we catch the girls then we'll set the woods ablaze.

INTERLUDE:

#3.
C                                 F
Well, our counselor said we could take them by surprise,
      G                         C
if we didn't say a word till we looked them in the eyes.
C                         F
We kept real still and we had our eyes a-glued..
   G                                    C
we saw how they were dressed..they were swimming in the..
G
welllll, now...

CHORUS:
C
We are the boys from Camp Kookamonga.
                                G              C
Our mothers sent us here for to study nature's ways.
C
We learned to make sparks by rubbing sticks together.
                                     G              C
But if we catch the girls then we'll set the woods ablaze.

#4.
C
Well, they ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles.
                                    G               C
They ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go.
C
They ran so fast even we couldn't catch them,
                             G          C
and we can even hike all the way to Buffalo.

(Hey, fellas wait for me!)

#5.
C                                  F
Well, we ran right after them till everyone was pooped..
       G                           C
so, we rested for a moment and our forces we regrouped.
C                       F
Then we saw the girls behind some evergreens,
G                        C
captured by a company of United States Marines.

(Aww! Those big guys get everything.)

CHORUS:
C
We are the boys from Camp Kookamonga.
                                G              C
Our mothers sent us here for to study nature's ways.
C
We learned to make sparks by rubbing (girls)sticks together.
                                     G              C
But if we catch the girls then we'll set the woods ablaze.

#6.
C
Well, they ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles.
                                    G               C
They ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go.
C
They ran so fast even we couldn't catch them,
                             G          C
and we can even hike all the way to Buffalo.

OUTRO:
C
C-rootie-toot-toot, C-rootie-toot-toot..
                               G         C
ahhh, we are the boys from the Boy Scout troop.
C
We don't smoke and we don't chew..
                          G          C   C G C
and we don't go with, the girls that do.(Fade.)
