Fried Ham
(American Camp & Scout Song)
Advertisement

Rebecca sent this song with the note: "Hello! This song originates from the U.S and my big sister taught it to me ( I think that she learned it from the Girl Scouts). It's called the 'Fried Ham Song'."

People sing the same verse over and over in different styles (like an opera singer, a hippie, a baby, with a southern accent, a British accent, etc.).

Fried Ham
Camp & Scout Song

(Chorus)
Fried ham! Fried Ham!
Cheese and bologna, after macaroni
Then we'll have some
Onions and pickles and pretzels
And then we'll have some more
Fried Ham! Fried ham!
(Talking not singing…)

Same song second verse
Opera singer whole lot worse.
(Now sing the Chorus
but singing like an opera singer.)

Same song third verse
