Happy Birthday Will!

Puck: If we shadows have offended,
Think but this; and all is mended
That you have but slumbered here
While these visions did appear
And this weak and idle theme
No more yielding but a dream.
Gentles–do not reprehend
If you pardon, we will mend.
And, as I am an honest Puck
If we have unearned luck.
Now to scape the serpents tongue.
We will make amends ere long
Else the Puck a liar call.
So–goodnight unto you all.
Give me your hands if we be friends.
And Robin shall restore amends.

Yes, a camp song and its parody because there are always some

Grey Squirrel, grey squirrel
Swish your bushy tail
Grey Squirrel, grey squirrel
Swish your bushy tail
Wrinkle up your funny nose
Hold a nut between your toes
Grey Squirrel, grey squirrel
Swish your bushy tail.

And you have no idea how difficult it was to type that song our because of the parody below from the year we had the bubonic plague in camp. I think Stanley wrote it.

Dead squirrel, dead squirrel
Swish your stiffened tail
Dead squirrel, dead squirrel
Swish your stiffened tail
See the fleas crawl in and out
It’s the plague I have no doubt
Dead squirrel dead squirrel
Swish your stiffened tail.

Give me a rose in the wintertime

Give me a rose in the wintertime
When it’s hard to find
Give me a rose in the wintertime
I’ve got roses on my mind
A rose is sweet most any time and yet
Give me a rose in the wintertime
How easy we forget.

Give me smile when I’m far from home.
When it’s hard to find
Give me a smile when I’m far from home
I’ve got smiling on my mind.
Now a smile is sweet most any time and yet
Give me a smile when I’m far from home
How easy we forget.

Give me a kiss when my baby’s gone ….

Give me a friend when I’m all alone …

Give me some peace when there’s talk of war…

Give me some sun when the rain is gone
When it’s hard to find
Give me some sun when the rain is gone
I’ve got sunshine on my mind
Now the sun is sweet most any time and yet.
Give me some sun when the rain is gone
How easy we forget.
