Tennessee Ernie Ford - Shotgun Boogie Lirics

 

In nineteen and fifty-nine we took a little hike

With our scout master down to Lake Oneeganite

We took a little pizza and we took some saurkrauts

And we marched along together till we heard the girl scouts

We're the boys from Camp Kookamonga

Our mothers sent us here for to study nature's ways

We learned to make sparks by rubbing sticks together

But if we catch the girls then we'll set the woods ablaze

F: And I was mad because me mother sent me up here ha-ha-ha

Well we crept up to the water and we see the girls a-swimmin

There musta been a hundred of them pretty young women

They looked so fine even birds forgot to sing

We lay down in the poison oak and didn't say a thing

We're the boys from Camp Kookamonga

Our mothers sent us here for to study nature's ways

We learned to make sparks by rubbing sticks together

But if we catch the girls then we'll set the woods ablaze

F: And I was mad because me mother sent me up here ha-ha-ha

Well we crept up to the water and we see the girls a-swimmin

There musta been a hundred of them pretty young women

They looked so fine even birds forgot to sing

We lay down in the poison oak and didn't say a thing

F: Hey will one of you fellas scratch my back?

Well our counselor said we could take them by surprise

If we didn't say a word till we looked them in the eyes

We kept real still and we had our eyes aglued

We saw how they were dressed they were swimming in the

Welll now...

Well they ran through the briars and they ran through the brambles

They ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go

They ran so fast even we couldn't catch them

And we can even hike all the way to Buffalo

F: Hey fellas wait for me

Well we ran right after them till everyone was pooped

So we rested for a moment and our forces we regrouped

Then we saw the girls behind some evergreens

Captured by a company of United States Marines

We're the boys from Camp Kookamonga

Our mothers sent us here for to study nature's ways

We learned to make sparks by rubbing sticks together

But if we catch the girls then we'll set the woods ablaze

F: And I was mad because me mother sent me up here ha-ha-ha

Well we crept up to the water and we see the girls a-swimmin

There musta been a hundred of them pretty young women

They looked so fine even birds forgot to sing

We lay down in the poison oak and didn't say a thing

F: Aww those big guys get everything

Well they ran through the briars an they ran through the brambles

They ran through the bushes where a rabbit couldn't go

They ran so fast even we couldn't catch them

And we can even hike all the way to Buffalo

A-rootie-toot-toot a-rootie-toot-toot

Ah we are the boys from the boy scout troop

We don't smoke and we don't chew

And we don't go with the girls that do
