Down By the Bay

Down by the bay,
Where the watermelons grow,
Back to my home,
I dare not go.
For if I did my mama would say,

Have you ever seen BEAR
Combing his hair
Down by the bay?"


"Have you ever seen MOSES
smellin' the roses,
Down by the bay?"


(On and on until it's time to end. Then end with the next verse.)

"Have you ever had a time,
You couldn't think of a rhyme,
Down by the bay?"

Down by the bay!

(Note from Moses -

The verses are made up each night of camp using names of counselors and camp staff in the verses. This is usually the last song sung at campfire before the quieter songs are sung.)
