#1 Song to Sing Around the Campfire? “On Top of Spaghetti”!

Definitely! At least it is my favorite. What’s yours? Here’s the lyrics so you can practice kids singing around camp firebefore your next camp out:

On top of spaghetti,
All covered with cheese,
I lost my poor meatball,
When somebody sneezed.

It rolled off the table,
And on to the floor,
And then my poor meatball,
Rolled out of the door.

It rolled in the garden,camp kid making s'mores
And under a bush,
And then my poor meatball,
Was nothing but mush.

The mush was as tasty
As tasty could be,
And then the next summer,
It grew into a tree.

The tree was all covered,
All covered with moss,
And on it grew meatballs,
And tomato sauce.

So if you eat spaghetti,
All covered with cheese,
Hold on to your meatball,
Whenever you sneeze.

Been singing this to my granddaughter and she thinks it’s hilarious. Kids.

Camp Care Packages: What Would Roseanne Connor Do?

Roseanne Connor, matriarch of the 1980’s sitcom, “Roseanne”, was the antithesis of 90sitcom6television’s usual crop of sugary, well-spoken,model-thin mothers. Roseannne’s chaotic, yet loving, parenting style was a breathe of fresh air to some mothers-and an irritant to many others. So what would this lovable loud mouth put in her kids’ camp care packages?

Even if the camp has banned food in care packages, I bet Roseanne would see that as a challenge and would, most certainly, smuggle some gum or other sugary contraband in to her kids’  boxes. An electronic fart machine-remote control fart machine great gift for farterdefinitely. Fake vomit, fake dog poop, a handful of rubber cockroaches, some fart putty might be included. Maybe a large rubber rattle snake and a wind up mouse. A care package from Roseanne would be the hit of the bunkhouse!
