The Lyrics

This one is for Peter Anderson's One Week Notice challenge (Week 34) this time hosted once again by me: Matthias! I was a Boy Scout growing up. Actually moved up the ranks all the way to Eagle Scout so I don't share the same mindset of the kid in this parody but I know many people (including my ex-girlfriend who you couldn't PAY to go camping) feel his pain.
Feet are soaked and they hurt in these boots on this hike
Heard my whine, These blisters aren't slight, Oh man...
Boy ain't this great?!

"Be a happy camper"- They all said
"Happy camper?!"- You're braindead
This camper is much madder
We'll get stabbed by a stabber in the wooooooods!

We're getting dragged to the camping ground
Gonna wake up in pain and muddy
Forming a blaze, We'll all choke on the air
Tell me it's fun... I just don't believe it!

Boy scout! That's me... Oh yeah!
Camp out! Mosquitoes bite
My parents both agree I should spend time in the country
They want free time without me (All night!)

No more pickin' boogers, Playin' "Fortnite" with my cat
Identi-fy-ing scat's a chore
Now we're learning knots with rope that's frayed
Really wish I packed some RAID
There's tons of creepy crawlers
Tons of creepy crawlers... In my shooooooooorts

Ma get me outta this camping ground
Chuggin' bug juice has made me jumpy
Screwed up my tastebuds, That's what I fear
We're grillin' hotdogs.... But they taste like charcoal!

Boy Scout! That's me... Oh yeah!
Camp out! This tent I'll fight
In sleeping bags we'll freeze and it's making me so grumpy
When bugles blast "Reveille"

Now I stink I could use a bath
This blows... We just lost our path
Cause my dad said... "Great Outdoors is bliss"
And my dad said... "When you get older it's missed" (Go! Go! Gooooo!!!)

So I'm getting stung by tons of bumblebees
Attacked while playing frisbee, Heard them buzzing
Now my face is a lumpy red sphere
Still think it's fun?! Dad, I'm calling bullsh*t!

Boy Scout! That's me... Oh yeah!
Camp out! That bear I'll fight!
Marshmallow gluttony gave me such an aching tummy
Let's hop in this car and leave! (Tonight!)

Craaaaaaaaaaaaaaap!!! Crap! Crap!
Damn! Damn!

Hit up the DoubleTree to sleep just like a king... This bites!

Rabies from a rabid raccoon's my fright
My dad has that dumb smirk. My bad mood's his delight!

Hehe, twice as TMGLTM as Allan Sherman's "Hello Muddah Hello Fadduh"! Your narrator must have p***ed off Dad big time to garner that smirk.

I was almost hoping for Jason Voorhees to show up and save you from your misery.

Anyway, what does "identifying scat" mean? Identifying animal droppings? Something else?

That’s exactly what it means. It was something we did as well as learning what different leaves were while out on nature hikes back in my scouting days
