Trying to get my brain to go back 20+ years doesn't work as well as it used to--but I recall putting "Raunch" camp lyrics to the tune of the song "Away with Rum". Most of them come back to mind--there's one phrase that won't surface:
The Song of the Triple K Ranch Staff
I think I do have the lyrics of Tennessee Stud written down somewhere, but I'll have to look it up. I'm headed for Kern today for a weekend of Family Camp so maybe the atmosphere there will help me remember.

I'm one of those people that holds onto way too much stuff, but I
still have my notebook from 1976-79 with camp songs! Here are the
lyrics Lynn was missing :
We never feed horses, we think its absurd
Fore each little oat turns into a turd.
Cleaning the stalls in itself is okay,
but we really get tired of recycled hay.
The dust in the barnyard is really quite thick.
To teach a class init could make us quite sick.
So therefore we won't teach our classes today.
We'll just go to the old barn and lay in the hay.
We love main camp trail rides, we fight for the chore.
A walk around the lake is really a bore.
The horses eat grass, the kids scream and cry.
And good old Charlie Brown just heaves a great sigh.
I hadn't thought about that song in years, but I can hear the tune and
picture the dancing that went with it!
