Rick Rider’s “Inspection Song”


August 11, 2016 by Doug Webster

Peter also resurrected a song penned by Rick Rider called “Inspection”  As I recall, cabin inspections were somewhat less draconian than those in the Army, but as the lyrics suggest, were treated with great “respect” by all campers.  Here’s the hand written version and then the lyrics typed out:

Inspection Song by RR

The Inspection Song (To the Battle Hymn of the Republic)
From the dirty grime & dusty shelves
To the floors & trunks so clean.
We will mop & dust & sweep the place
And will hear George Walker our counselor scream,
First we’ll fight to win the Honor
Then to keep our cabin clean.
We will proudly bribe the management
So we can get more ice cream.
