Hello Mudda! Hello Fadda!

Allan Sherman

Hello, Muddah. Hello, Faddah. Here I am at Camp Grenada.

Camp is very entertaining and they say we'll have some fun if it stops raining.

I went hiking with Joe Spivey - he developed poison ivy.

You remember Leonard Skinner - he got Ptomaine poisoning last night after dinner.

All the counselors hate the waiters and the lake has alligators.

And the head coach wants no sissies so, he reads to us from something called Ulysses.

Now I don't want this should scare ya' but my bunkmate has Malaria.

You remember Jeffery Hardy - they're about to organize a searching party.

Take me home, oh, Muddah, Faddah. Take me home, I hate Grenada.

Don't leave me out in the forest where I might get eaten by a bear.

Take me home - I promise I will not make noise, or mess the house with other boys.

Oh, please don't make me stay - I've been here one whole day.

Dearest Fadduh, Darling Muddah, how's my precious little bruddah?

Let me come home, if you miss me. I would even let Aunt Bertha hug and kiss me.

Wait a minute, it's stopped hailing. Guys are swimming, Guys are sailing.

Playing baseball, gee that's bettah - Muddah, Faddah kindly disregard this letter.

Play the tune!
