LDS World

Song written for Pompano Beach Stake Young Women Camp, 2001. Performed stunningly by Alison Moore Smith and Amber Marcello.

Sung to the tune of: Material Girl

Swimming, hiking, seeing friends
Well, that’s why camp’s for me (and me)
If you follow all the rules
You’ll have more fun you ?ll see!!

When you get your clothes all ready
Please pack carefully (that ?s key)
Standing up for what is right
You must dress properly.

Chorus:
Cuz when we ?re camping in such an LDS world then I am the most modest of girls.
You know that when we ?re camping in such an LDS world then I am the most modest of girls.

Hiking boots or sturdy shoes
Protect feet tenderly, (owee)
Put some long pants in your bag
Keep out poison ivy.

Strappy shirts or little tank tops
Send them out to sea (so free)
All your shirts should have some sleeves
So just you let it be.

Chorus:
Cuz when we ?re camping in such an LDS world then I am the most modest of girls.
You know that when we ?re camping in such an LDS world then I am the most modest of girls.

Raise your hands up in the air
And tell me what you see. (woo wee)
If you chose a shirt that ?s right
There will be no tummy.

One-piece swimsuits only please
And shorts down to your knee (oh gee)
Dressing modestly can give you
True serenity.

Chorus:
Cuz when we ?re camping in such an LDS world then I am the most modest of girls.
You know that when we ?re camping in such an LDS world then I am the most modest of girls.

    These are the lyrics I wrote to help the girls avoid being dressed by the stake leaders. I was the ward camp leader and the assistant stake camp leader that year–which was the year after the “gang camp.”

    Awesome song! Yeah for not being dressed by the stake leaders…

    :clap::clap::clap:Yay!!!!!!! :clap::clap::clap:
    That was hysterical, Alison! Great lyrics! I’ll have to save that one, (with credits, of course!) and use it pre-camp next year! That was great!
    I LOVE doing parodies– the crowds love them!
    Did I post the lyrics I wrote for “Stop in the Name of Love” for our 2007 girls camp?
    I think I did– but I can’t remember… hmmm… I’ll have to search the site.

    How fun! ‘Specially loved that part about how dressing modestly gives you true “serenity.” :wink:

    Serena

    P.S. You did a great job writing the lyrics!

    Someone emailed me for YW camp lyrics, so I’m popping up this thread for any of you Young Women Camp directors.
