The Quartermasters Store

Classic camp song that the scouts will usually take and turn into a loud stomping song.

Burl Ives' rendition is a little more mellow than how it's sung up at camp.

Lyrics

There are snakes, snakes, snakes
Big as garden rakes,
At the store! At the store! 
There are snakes, snakes, snakes, 
Big as garden rakes, at the Quartermaster's store.

Chorus
My eyes are dim I can-not see. 
I have not got my specs with me. 
I have HEY! Not HO! got my specs with me.

There are mice, mice, mice
Running though the rice,
At the store! At the store! 
There are mice, mice, mice, 
Running through the rice, at the Quartermaster's store.

Chorus
Continue with each of the following:
3. lice - living on the mice. 
4. rats - big as alley cats. 
5. roaches - big as football coaches
6. watches - big as sasquaches
7. snakes - big as garden rakes
8. bears - but no one really cares
9. beavers    - with little meat cleavers
10. foxes    - stuffed in little boxes
