 Filk: The Camp Came Back

To the tune of "The Cat Came Back"

Old Uncle Sam and Wall Street were upset
They had a tented camp protesting all the debt
They tried and they tried to shoo the camp away
So it set up in a city that was far far away
But the camp came back, the very next day
The camp came back; they thought it was a goner.
But the camp came back; it just wouldn't stay away.
The cops assured the mayor that they'd set the camp to rights
They loaded up their pepper spray and charged in late at night
They swung batons and shouted that the camp would soon be through—
Ninety-seven lawsuits set against the boys in blue.
Chorus
The rains and the snow started falling in the land
And the feds knew the camp made of nylon couldn't stand
The wind tore the tents and the rain destroyed the signs
And they huddled in their blankets waiting for the sun to shine.
Chorus
The Health Department visited and said the camp's unclean
The kitchen is unsafe and the ground is a latrine
The campers rented port-a-potties, got some gloves and soap
Handed out some cookies labeled "Made with love and hope."
And the camp came back, the very next day
The camp came back; they thought it was a goner.
But the camp came back; it just wouldn't stay away.
