Media Room III

There are some songs that are used that aren't camp songs. And sometimes, they really sound like they should be.

Media Room

Potentials

Songs that weren't written for camp but maybe could become camp songs

Never set the cat on fire,

You only will annoy it.

The heat will make the beast perspire;

She surely won't enjoy it.

Likewise, do not ignite the dog,

The snake, the gerbil, or the frog.

No, never set the cat on fire.

And mind your manners,

As circumstances may require,

And never set the cat on fire.

Don't open up the cabin hatch,

The air is sure to leave it.

And air is very hard to catch,

You never will retrieve it.

And though you think your life's a bore,

Don't open the reactor door.

Don't open up the cabin hatch.

And mind your manners,

As circumstances may require,

And never set the cat on fire.

Don't change the navigator's data,

Someone's sure to see ya.

You know the captain's view of that:

A very bad idea.

He doesn't want his ship to race

Forever lost in endless space.

Don't change the navigator's data.

And mind your manners,

As circumstances may require,

And never set the cat on fire.

Don't start an interstellar war,

It has no helpful uses.

If people ask you, "What's it for?"

You'll only make excuses.

If thirty trillion folk get hurt,

You'll go to bed with no dessert.

Don't start an interstellar war.

And mind your manners,

As circumstances may require,

And never set the cat on fire.

Yes, mind your manners,

As circumstances may require,

And never set the cat on fire.

Oh no, no, I never go to work!

Oh no, no, I never go to work!

Oh no, no, I never go to work!

Oh no, no, I never go to work!

On Mondays, I never go to work,

On Tuesdays, I stay at home,

On Wednesdays, I never feel inclined—

Work is the last thing on my mind!

On Thursdays, it's a holiday!

and Fridays I detest.

Oh, it's much too late on a Saturday,

and Sunday is the day of rest.

Oh yes, yes, practice trumpet every day!

Oh yes, yes, practice trumpet every day!

Oh yes, yes, practice trumpet every day!

Oh yes, yes, practice trumpet every day!

Practice Monday! (trumpet/kazoo noises)

Practice Tuesday! (trumpet/kazoo noises)

Practice Wednesday! (extended trumpet/kazoo line)

Practice Thursday! (trumpet/kazoo noises)

And Friday! (trumpet/kazoo noises)

Oh, I practice all night on a Saturday,

So on Sunday I play best.

Oh no, no, I never go to work!

Oh no, no, I never go to work!

Oh no, no, I never go to work!

Oh no, no, I never go to work!

On Mondays, I never go to work,

On Tuesdays, I stay at home,

On Wednesdays, I never feel inclined—

Work is the last thing on my mind!

On Thursdays, it's a holiday!

and Fridays I detest.

Oh, it's much too late on a Saturday,

and Sunday is the day of rest—

It's the day of rest!
