lyrics

Well summer’s here you can feel it int he air
and little kids are getting off of that bus over there
Camp is heaven on earth, you can see it in their eyes
But standing there in your staff shirt you’re my angel in disguise
Singin “Boom-chick-a-boom” and “Calamine Lotion”
They call you counselor but I got another notion
Let’s use the buddy system, baby, buddy up with me
Be my camp romance, come over, baby, and see

*Kumbaya, my love, kumbaya (Yeah baby come on over here)
Kumbaya, my love, kumbaya (Hold my hand, you got nothin to fear)
Kumbaya, my love, kumbaya (Yeah baby come on over here)
Oh, love, kumbaya

Well the sun’s gone down, stars are up in the skies
And I can see the gentle flicker of the campfire in your eyes
Well we hiked and we square danced and you’ve gone to my head
Bugle player, play that bugle, put the campers to bed
Cause I need some time alone with you without all these kids
Where we can wax on and on ‘bout all the things that we did
With your head on my shoulder down here on the forest floor
Our little camp romance is sweet, but, baby, I want s’more

Kumbaya, my love, kumbaya (Yeah baby come on over here)
Kumbaya, my love, kumbaya (Sneakin out after lights out, you got nothin to fear)
Kumbaya, my love, kumbaya (Yeah baby come over here)
Oh, love, kumbaya

Well there’s been God’s eyes and tie dyes and bull’s eyes and high dives
Nature walks, deep talks, dirty socks and Coopers Hawks
KP TP archery and skinned knees
Snipe hunts, snack bars, mosquito bites and shooting stars
It ended in love, though we started as friends
And like a wise man once said, all good things must end
So now it’s time to say goodbye, baby, give me a chance
Hello September, goodbye camp romance

Kumbaya, my love, kumbaya (Yeah baby come over here)
Kumbaya, my love, kumbaya (Don’t cry, baby, I’ll see you next year)
Kumbaya, my love, kumbaya (One More time baby come over here)
Oh, love, kumbaya
