Thread Name: Lyr Req: Crazy Words, Crazy Tune (Yellen, Ager)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Washington at Valley Forge
I knew the lyrics as:

Wasington at Valley Forge
Freezin' cold but up spoke George sayin'
Bo-do-deo, bo-do-deo, do
Crazy words, crazy tune
But all that George could croon and spoon was
Bo-do-deo, bo-do-deo, do
On his ukelele daily
He would strum with a beedle dum dum
Dancin' prancin'
And then he'd holler red hot momma
Crazy words crazy tune
But all that George could croon and spoon was
Bo-do-deo, bo-do-deo, do


We sang it circa 199-1980 in our folk music entertainment group called The East Hill Minstrels representing York College, York, Nebraska

It was not a camp song at the time to my knowledge
