The Lyrics

I didn't do the spoken part at the beginning cause really, nothing really fit in there. So don't nab me on poor pacing for forgetting it...
Where are we gonna pitch tent?

Hunting and a-fishing, get a campfire lit
Staying at the campground
Mosquito repellent doesn't work a damn bit
Staying at the campground
We will sleep in dirty tents
Hide from rabid beavers
We will eat some trail mix and
Probably catch a fever

Hiking on the trail, and then it starts to rain down
Staying at the campground
No technology is around, no
Staying at the campground
Poison Ivy rash, right on my itching ass
How can I relieve it?
I'm pissing in the woods; using leaves don't feel good
I just can't believe it!

Best friends on my cell are calling,
My dad gets real mad, says it's appalling,
I "need to know about the ways of nature"
Our family camping trips are boring
In the wilderness, it leaves me snoring
It's the worst week of my life, that's how I feel

Well I threw up that trail mix crap, now
Staying at the campground
I stepped into a bear trap, ow!
Staying at the campground
My parents, they boss me around
I'm chilled to the bone, now
This is the worst week of my life
I want to go home now

In this tent, my brother keeps on farting
Stinking up the campground
Well I can't take much more, he farts and then he snores
Sleeping at the campground
(*Hack!*, now cut it out!)
Staying at the campground
(I want to go home)
Sleeping at the campground

Yeah, roughing it in the cold rain
Sleeping rough in the dank air
Staying at the campground
Staying at the campground
(Please let me go home!)
Staying at the campground
Staying at the campground
