The Lyrics

Based on a childhood experience... In school, I recycled it a few times for "funny personal experience" essays. I recycled it today for (hopefully) the last time.
At camp we never get our fill
We play and do not fight
Today is special 'cause we will
Be staying here all night!
We'll hike and swim with all our friends
Which just can't be beat
Afterwards we'll have a barbeque which ends
With a special treat

We're gonna eat a sponge cake tonight
With whipped cream delight - y'all come!
We're gonna eat a sponge cake tonight
'Til it's out of sight - yum yum!
Give me some!

So after we had played, we ate
The couns'lors brought out the cake
But I took so long to get in line
Too slow on the uptake

They saw how disappointed I was
"You can lick the pan," they said
Impatiently I opened wide
And so I tasted shaving cream instead

And we all got the sponge cake tonight
With shave cream so white - oh yuck!
The cake was REAL sponges tonight
Some bad-tasting bites - that sucks!
What bad luck!

We're gonna have some heartburn today
And every which way
The couns'lors will pay, and they'd better pray
All 'cause we got the sponge cake tonight
Sponge cake tonight - oh yuck!
Sponge cake, bummer

We've got to go and get revenge
Let's see what we can do
Their sleeping bags will come undone
As ants go marching through

We'll all remember this forever
And so we'll make our plans
We will wake them up by playing loud rock music
And clanking garbage cans

And we all got the sponge cake tonight
With shave cream so white - oh yuck!
The cake was REAL sponges tonight
Some bad-tasting bites - that sucks!
What bad luck!

We can chase them to the bushes
After stealing all their clothes
We can tie them up and make them eat
More sponges, then they'll also get a
Sponge cake tonight,
Sponge cake and heartburn
They're gonna have a sponge cake tonight
A sponge cake tonight, and they'll learn!

I remember my grandparents always had 'spongecake' in the freezer. It was called: real old ice-cream! :-D

Is it required of camp counselors to play sadistic pranks on the kids? The ones I had contrived a story about a theft and gathered us all together to "reprimand" us, then yelled, "Just kidding!", pulled out hoses and sprayed us down. Thanks for the MEMories; nice job.

Hello, Johnny, Jeff, Meriadoc, Claude, Stray, David... Hello Faddah! Thanks for sharing my pan! Jeff -- what's the deal with "anything with 'sponge' in it"?

"Sponge" has been my nickname since freshman year in college. "Absorb beer like a sponge, get rung out like a sponge"
