My Tent – An Ode To Camping

Hello everyone, ages ago I asked  people on Twitter if they had any ideas for parodies I could write. One of my oldest Twitter friends @tattooed_mummy suggested I wrote one about camping. I have to confess its taken ages for me to find the right song and get the lyrics just right but at last it’s done. So here, in honour of Tat Mum and all the campers out there, my latest parody.

Our Tent

Camping holidays are best.
Pack the car with all the stuff.
A week or two of living rough.
Under canvas people sleep.
Plastic plates’s for eating food,
thats cooked on a stove

Our tent, in the middle of a pitch
Our tent in the middle of a ….

Our tents a pop up dome.
We get it up quite quickly now,
but  its hard to get it down.
We’ve got all the best kit.
Solar lighing, fold up chairs and an air bed for the ground.

Our tent, in the middle of a pitch.
Our tent, in the middle of a…
Our tent in the middle of a pitch.
Our tent, in the middle of a…. (something tells us that we’ve got to get away from it)

Campings great for festivals.
Like the ones that Tat Mum does.
Every weekend if she could.
She likes wearing fancy dress.
Ballgowns worn for breakfast yeah.
It’s just her way.

Our tent, in the middle of a pitch
Our tent, in the middle of a…

Camping at camp Bestival.
Cus its her favourite festival
She would have such a very good time
Cus its gin time
Its her favourite time.
Her daughter likes the camping too.
Its a family thing to do.
Then we’d say nothing would come between them.
Two dreamers.

Our tent, in the middle of a pitch.

Our tent, is our castle and our keep.
Our tent, in the middle of a pitch.
Our tent, that is where were gonna sleep.
Our tent…

A view of a festival campsite. Lots of small tents and large white teepee tents

    Hehe we love camping as a family and the line about being able to put it up quickly but it takes ages to put away really made me chuckle – I actually passed out when we were packing ours away this year because it was one of the super hot days we’ve had this summer! Poor hubby had a bit of a shock when I just keeled over! Lol. #blogcrush

    Very clever! We used to love camping, but it’s rained the last four times we’ve gone even in France. #mixitup

    great parody. I’m not much of a camper. I reluctantly do it on occasion for the annual classic car gathering but haven’t been for the last couple of years. #mixitup

        I am not a newbie camper!!! I know to put everything away!!! I thought I did. I left out the diaper bag with the wipes. I heard a noise just by my head. I unzipped the tent and I was nose to nose with a bear. I took my small dog and shoved her down in the sleeping bag so she would not make a noise and simple zipped up the tent and PRAYED it would go away. The bear ended up wandering to the site next to ours that left ALL their food out and had a snack over there. ALL done deep woods camping unless in a camper! It really scared me.

            I would take sheep over a bear. The people next to me were from Boston and and their stuff was new! Looks like they opened an LLBEAN catalogue and order an entire page. The bear tore up everything. They just left it all and jumped back in their car and went back to the city. Ha ha ha!!
