The Lyrics

Updated for the Artistry contest. For the duration of the contest, a low bitrate mp3 of the original song can be heard here. Check out Kevin Lee at
Need to head out of here
Recharge myself, get back in gear
Heading for the wilderness
This city boy sure needs a rest

I’ll live just like a pioneer
I’ve got my lawn chair and my beer
I’ll sit out there in the trees
Call pizza delivery

But I was startled when I arrived
At my rental camping site
'Cause I can't find an electric light
At my rental camping site

There’s no broadband access jack
For my iPod and my Mac
No place to plug my TV
How will I play games on my Wii

The only bathroom's down the trail
The scent makes a strong man quail
What we need are fewer trees
More modern-day amenities

The wasps are swarming from several hives
At my rental camping site
And poison ivy is in my eyes
At my rental camping site

The ants are biting at my toes
I realize now that camping blows
I’m being stalked by grizzly bears
So where’s the concierge?

I can’t believe that I’m still alive
At my rental camping site
And now my crotch is a home for lice
At my rental camping site

I'm packing up now, I leave tonight
From my rental camping site
I think a Hyatt will be just right
That’s the place I want, for my camping site

Leaving tonight
Need a Starbucks tonight

Dug the Great Outdoors! I haven't gone camping since I was a kid. Here's 5 tents, 5 mess kits, and 5 provisions to add to your camping set!

Now I've heard the original song and I loved it! This was great and I can relate since I've been camping since I've been like 3 or 4 years old.

Great OS, and you used the structure to your advantage, especially the bridge. Liked this much.
