Camp Run Amok

Put the pork-n-beans in a big garbage can Let the kiddies run wild til lunchtime, then try to reign ‘em in Make the little bed-wetting buggers play White castle in the sand Find out who clogged the shower drain and stopped up the toilet again The Camp counselor is looking a little addled, even more so today His bungling staff let another golden goose opportunity get away Parents with good money were willing to pay extra, to keep their rowdy kids on an extended two-week stay But nobody was around answering the phone, everybody was hammock gone At Camp Run Amok, everything is run wrong Bugle reverie is at five in the morn, but the cock don’t even crow at the crack of dawn Steve and Kelly, Jared and Sebastian A most inept staff crew, who don’t get nothing done Didn’t put up no transparent policy tents, too stringent on the press pool rules Mischief behavior gets praised, no denouncement They don’t mind being treated like fools The boss sneaks off every weekend, tweeting dumb stuff on his cell phone Today, he was bragging how he don’t pay taxes like Al Capone The bad punk rep of Camp Run Amok: common sense ran home ... now everything is ran wrong Welcome to Camp Run Amok, where everything is in disorderly disarray The Camp counselor likes it chaotic that way; with kids running things, having the last say
