Gee Mom I Wanna Go

Posted on: August 7, 2008

I remember singing this but the line was:

Oh I don’t want to go to girl scout camp.
Gee mom I wanna go.
But they won’t let me go.
Gee mom I wanna go home.

And then instead of “in scoutcamp” we sang “at this camp”.

And I remember the line:

The counselors at this camp
they say are mighty fine.
But when they take off their makeup,
they look like Frankenstein.

Oh, The biscuits in scoutcamp,
they say are mighty fine,
but one rolled off the table
and killed a pal of mine

Hey, ma I want to go,
Ge, ma I got to go,
hey mom I want to go home.

The movies in the scoutcamp,
they say are mighty fine,
but when you ask for Elvis Presley,
they give you Frankenstien.

Hey, ma I want to go,
Ge, ma I got to go,
hey mom I want to go home.

The cocoa in the scoutcamp
they say is mighty fine,
its good for cuts and bruises
because it taste’s like iodine

Hey, ma I want to go,
Ge, ma I got to go,
hey mom I want to go home.

Oh, the ropes in the scoutcamp,
they say are mighty fine,
but when you get near the top,
your life ain’t worth a dime

Hey, ma I want to go,
Ge, ma I got to go,
hey mom I want to go home.

Oh, the Horses in the scoutcamp,
they say are mighty fine,
but when you go get off the them,
they kick you in the spine

Hey, ma I want to go,
Ge, ma I got to go,
hey mom I want to go home.

Here is another version.

The busses that you ride in,
they say are mighty fine.
But when they turn a corner,
they leave the wheels behind.

Chorus:
Hey, Ma, I wanna go
But, they won’t let me go
Hey, Ma, I wanna go home!

The leaders that they have here,
they say are mighty fine.
But when you get up closer,
they look like Frankenstein.

The first aid that they give you,
they say is mighty fine.
But if you cut your finger,
you’re left with only nine.

The water that they have here,
they say is mighty fine.
But when you try to drink it,
it tastes like turpentine.

The biscuits that they serve you,
they say are mighty fine.
But one rolled off the table
and killed a pal of mine.

The spaghetti that they serve you,
they say is mighty fine.
They rinse it the toilet
and drain it on the line.

The cocoa that they serve you,
they say is mighty fine.
It’s good for cuts and bruises
and tastes like iodine.

The tents that you sleep in,
they say are mighty fine,
But whoever said this
has never slept in mine.

The toilets that they have here
are the best that they can get.
Last night my tent mate had to go,
they haven’t found him yet.

Campfires that they have here
they say are mighty bright.
You wake up in the morning
and there’s not a tree in sight.

The nurses that they have here
they say are mighty fine.
But if you break a finger
they break the other nine.

The girls that they have here
they say are mighty fine.
But they’re either under seven
or over ninety-nine.

Another version which is closer to what we sang when I was a kid…

Girl Scout Camp, Girl Scout Camp!
Oh please Mom, don’t send me to Girl Scout Camp!

The leaders that they give you, they say they’re mighty fine
But when they take their makeup off they look like Frankenstein

(chorus in between each verse)

The nurses that they give you, they say they’re mighty fine
But when you break a finger, they break the other nine

The donuts that they give you, they say they’re mighty fine
But one rolled off the table and killed a friend of mine

The toilets that they give you, they say they’re mighty fine
But when you go to flush them, they cut off your behind

The water that they give you, they say it’s mighty fine
But when you take a sip of it, it tastes like turpentine

The lifeguards that they give you, they say they’re mighty fine
But when you say you’re drowning, they say you’re doing fine
