Songs I Learned To Love At Summer Camp

These all are songs I learned to love during my many years spent at summer camp. We actually sang all of these, accompanied by a guitar. Sometimes in the dining hall, sometimes around a camp fire, sometimes just walking down the trail.

The picture is my brother and I, at camp, in July 1995.

Songs I Learned To Love At Summer Camp

I like mine with lettuce and tomato, Heinz 57 and french fried potatoes, big kosher pickle and a cold draft beer

Rainbow Connection by Kermit the Frog
why are there so many songs about rainbows, and what's on the other side, rainbows are visions, but only illusions, and rainbows have nothing to hide. so we've been told and some choose to believe it, I know they're wrong, wait and see. someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection, the lovers, the dreamers and me

Hold On by Wilson Phillips
some day somebody's gonna make you want to turn around and say goodbye, until then baby are you going to let them hold you down and make you cry, don't you know, don't you know, things can change, things'll go your way, if you hold on for one more day

Close to You by The Carpenters
why do birds suddenly appear, every time you are near, just like me, they long to be, close to you

Follow Me by John Denver
you see I'd like to share my life with you, and show you things I've seen, places that I'm going to places where I've been, to have you there beside me and never be alone, and all the time that you're with me, we will be at home

Puff the Magic Dragon by Peter, Paul and Mary
puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea, and frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called honah lee, little jackie paper loved that rascal puff, and brought him strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff
