Song : B
G D7 G
Hello Muddah, hello Fadduh, Here I am at Camp Granada.
B7 Em
Camp is very entertaining,
A7 D7
and they say we'll have some fun if it stops raining.
G D7 G
I went hiking with Joe Spivey...he developed poison ivy.
B7 C
You remember Leonard Skinner?
G D7 G
He got ptomaine poisoning last night after dinner.

G D7
All the counselors hate the waiters,
And the lake has alligators.
B7 Em
And the head coach wants no sissies,
A7 D7
So he reads to us from something called Ulysses.
G D7
Now I don't want, this should scare ya,
But my bunkmate has malaria.
B7 C
You remember Jeffrey Hardy?
G D7 D G
They're about to organize a searching party.

Chorus :
Em Am6 Em Am6
Take me home, oh muddah fadduh, take me home,

I hate Granada.
Don't leave me out in the forest,
Am9 B7 C7 B7 C7 B7
where I might get eaten by a bear.
Em Am6 Em Am6
Take me home, I promise I will not make noise

or mess the house with
G C G Am9 boys, oh please don't make me stay,
B7 C7 B7 C7 B7
I've been here one, whole, day.

Dearest fadduh, darling muddah,
How's my precious little bruddah?
Let me come home if ya miss me
I will even let Aunt Bertha hug and kiss me.
Wait a minute, it stopped hailing,
Guys are swimming, guys are sailing,
Playing baseball, gee that's bettah,
Muddah Fadduh please disregard this lettah.
