MC Lars Summer Camp Love (Is So in Tents) Lyrics

Oh hey, how was bird watching?
I made this for you in arts and crafts.
It's a clay zombie figure. I know you like zombies right?

Okay, I met a girl by the boathouse, she's so lovely
All I want from her is to kiss and hug me
Honestly I'm homesick but she makes it all better
Wow, that's beautiful, what's more beautiful?
The way she looks at me when she busses her tray,
Pen-15 on my hand, Sharpie won't wash away
Thought I was played out on this whole love thing
But she's the type of girl I'd ask to wear my onion ring
I'm ten years old, I thought girls were gross,
But this one's cool, she likes my jokes,
I'll keep her safe during capture the flag,
Spy on my team for her, enraptured that bad,
We go for a walk, I reach for her hand,
"I'm like I think I like you," she's like "That was the plan"
I made her a sculpture in arts and crafts,
I farted on the hike she was the only girl who laughed!

Summer camp love is so intense,
I'd French kiss her if I knew what that meant!

[CHORUS]
Down by the lake there's a girl that I know
We met at camp almost six weeks ago
No one can tell what next year might hold
At summer camp

The next May comes, she calls me,
She tells me she won't be at camp this year.
I don't know what to say, I'm sad.
Fast-forward eight years. What a surprise. It was well worth the wait.

Yo! I'm nineteen now with a fun summer job,
Camp counselor for kids and it doesn't seem odd
Working at the same place I used to go to,
You want camp traditions? Well let me show you
And guess who's back on staff this year?
Little Miss Heartbreaker! Oh dear.
All grown up and I'm thinking maybe,
Time can do beautiful things to a lady
Skinny-dipping in the lake she starts to blush
I reach for her hand and I feel the rush
I hold her close and pretty soon
We're falling in love under a Tahoe moon
I'm like, "I think I missed you," she's like
"I missed you too," this is what time and patience can do.

Summer camp love is so intense,
I'd be her man if I knew what that meant.

[CHORUS]
Down by the lake there's a girl that I know
We met at camp almost eight years ago
No one can tell what next year might hold
At summer camp

September comes. We go back to college. I holler at her on Facebook.
She's all up on my wall and shiz. She calls me the next May.
She asks if I'm working again. Fast-forward twenty years.

Now we're both adults, it happened so fast,
And somehow our marriage has happened to last,
Had a ceremony by the boat house
Where the ten year old me first checked her out
And everyone was there, our family and friends
I think I like the way this story ends,
We had a little girl who just turned ten, oh no,
Here we go again!

[MADELINE] Mom, Dad, um...
[LARS] What's up Maddie?
[MADELINE] I met a boy by the boathouse!

Summer camp love is so intense, it's so in tents,
Summer camp love is so intense. (Cupid must have taken archery lessons!)
Summer camp love is so intense, it's so in tents,
Summer camp love is so intense. (This sailboat fits two people perfectly!)

[CHORUS]
Down by the lake there's a girl that I know
We met at camp twenty-eight years ago
No one can tell what next year might hold
At summer camp

Don't be scared of the ghost stories. I'm here.
The moral of the story is that some songs can be happy, just like life.
And even though life can be sad, sometimes you just have to smile and remember that summer camp love.
