Happy Camper



Look at me,  I’m a happy camper,

I’ve got problems, but no answers.

Looked for a solution, or absolution,

but could come to no conclusion.


On a sunny day,  I pitched a tent,

pretty soon clouds roll in,  here comes the rain.

I take it to be a random event,

in the dark and damp,  don’t do no good to complain.


A foot of snow fell,

I shoveled and shoveled,until I thought I’d drop.

I had to finish, I couldn’t stop,

I’m a happy camper,  can’t you tell?

Now, I’m sore and aching,

I feel like I’m breaking.

Life is just going swell,

I’m feeling so well.


Lost the power,  wasn’t any light or heat,

I couldn’t be feeling any more beat.

Had to sit in the cold  and dark,

so happy, feel like singing like a lark.

It’s a problem just to get some rest,

there’s nothing I can do or take,

to knock me out,  I’m still awake.

I cleaned out the medicine chest,

counting sheep,  I could count the  entire flock.

I’d still be looking at the clock.


I’m a happy camper,

nothing like bad news to damper,

a good mood.

There goes the attitude

I’m not cut out for camping  I suppose,

I’m open for suggestions,  what do you purpose?


Every day people scurry and scamper,

in a hurry to arrive.

They’re not happy in the confusion and the clamor,

doing what they have to do to survive.


I’m going to catch a tramper,

bound for an exotic locale.

I’m going to be one happy camper,

as soon as that ship sets sail.
