Subject: camp song: oh, I want to linger...
From: kimmers
Date: 26 Aug 00 - 01:28 AM

A new member here, although I've been dropping in and snickering quietly (with appreciation) for months.

I'm looking for the lyrics to a camp song I learned as a child. All I remember is:

Oh, mmm, I want to linger Oh, mmm, a little longer Oh, mmm, a little longer here with you. Oh, mmm, it's such a perfect night, Mmm, it doesn't seem quite right Mmm, this is my very last with you.

I think that was the chorus, and that there were many verses. This was sung by the camp counselors to the little campers on the last day of camp, amid many tears and partings. Anyone remember more of it?

I think I'd agree with Steve, even though I never heard the song. We had four 2-week sessions every summer, and less than twenty-four hours between sessions. Those hours of silence were few and precious - we sure as heck didn't want those kids to linger, much as we liked them.

this is the way we used to sing it around the camp fire at camp sugar pine in the calif sierras in the early 60's....the tradition was that altho we 'practiced' it during the camp session, we never officially SANG it til our last night at camp....(usually with tears in our eyes)


mm-mm i want to linger
mm-mm a little longer
mm-mm a little longer here with you...

mm-mm it's such a perfect night
mm-mm it doesn't seem quite right

I was a last year camper this summer, and I just got back from two week camp about a week ago. I miss it quite a lot, and I'm glad I found this page full of camp songs. :')

Subject: Lyr Add: I WANT TO LINGER (S Murphy, H Marshall)
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 27 Jul 08 - 10:33 PM

I found this at the Lester S. Levy Collection of Sheet Music.

I wonder if it's the ancestor of the camp song? Maybe someone more musically literate than I can tell us whether the tunes are similar. I notice the chorus has rests at the beginning of the measures where the camp-song lyrics have "Mmm." It's easy to see how one could evolve into the other.

I WANT TO LINGER
Words, Stanley Murphy. Music, Henry I. Marshall.
New York: Jerome H. Remick & Co., 1914.

1. Moon am shinin', Lou.
My heart's pinin' too,
Pinin' just for you,
Pinin' just for you,
My little Lou,
'Cause you're so true
That you have won my heart away
With your winnin' way.
Can't you hear me sigh
When it's time for us to say goodbye?

CHORUS: I want to linger,
A little longer,
A little longer, Lou.
See that moon a-shinin' up above.
There's no time like this for making love.
I love your lovin', your lovey lovin'.
I hate a-leavin' you.
Let me linger just a little,
Little longer with you,
Little longer with you.

2. Spring am comin' soon.
Flow'rs will be in bloom,
And the mellow moon,
Shinin' out in June,
Will hear us croon
A lovin' tune,
And then we'll stroll through lover's lane,
Near the sugar cane,
To a cabin new,
That I been a-buildin' just for you.

We sing "I want to linger" at our family campouts in the summer, every year, always on the last night. We just make one small variation, with "oo-oo" instead of mm-mm. I never imagined other people would know the song though.

It's a four-chord song.
In C, the chords are:

each line is the same and you'll probably be able to hear where each change falls (if not, come back and I'll break the phrases for you)

I still remember this song and the last time I was at camp was in 1962, when I was 15. I guess some sweet memories stay with you all your life. We sang the same lyrics, but substituted "we" for "I" and "our" for "my" after the first verse. It was the camp staff that sang the song to the campers (and to each other at the end of the two co-ed weeks) on the last campfire night. Ah, what memories!

Not counselor, but farm-program presenter at outdoor ed/camp for ghetto kids brought out to rural IL demo farm/outdoor ed environmental center. I can think of quite a few I'd have liked to spend more time with.

Natural farmers, living all their lives in concrete, would step off the bus. Three or four of them in every busload, discovering where they really belonged for the first time. So powerful, so precious. They'd hold hands with us, not even aware they'd reached across to grab on, a lot of them. Two short weeks to discover the pulse of LIFE, and find out that bunnies don't really lay eggs but chickens and ducks do.

Tune for this song? (Short MP3 sample via email?)

I've been collecting and adapting campfire and other songs for workshop songs-- songs to open, punctuate, apply, and close workshops. (Workshops can be seen as large liturgies.)

This one, without a campfire, sings better this way:

You know I want to linger
You know a little longer
You know a little longer here with you

For succeeding verses:


Please God
I do
We do
I think
I pray
We will
We can
Oh Lord
My love
God knows
