Buddy Bachelor is who you are talking about.. Buddy and Chuck.


The sugar blues is the end of the song you posted....

Down at Camp Nejeda
The Campers are better
They stick their needles in
All filled up with insulin
hold your needles straighter
you'll feel better later
4+ and acetone
Yell dear Momma wanna go home
First you feel rocky,
Then you feel shock
Thats the way it goes with the sugar blues.....

I went to camp Nejeda from 1975-1988... When did you go? I have a song book.
If you are still active, I will get it out of my crawl space and copy it for yo.

The chicken that they serve you
They say is mighty fine
A piece fell on the table and started marching time

The counselors they give you, they say are mighty fine,
they wake you up at seven and then they sleep to nine.
I don't want to go to Nejeda
dear mom I wanna go home.

The cabins that they give us,
They say are mighty fine
That's if you like late visits
From the forest post bed-time

The nurses that they give us
They say are really great
We've all learned to self inject
Rather than face fate

The doctors that they give us
Their training is just fine
My doctor saw my hi glucose
And made me run two miles as a fine

The juice that they give you
they say is mighty fine
It looks like dead seaweed
and tastes like turpentine.

The meatballs that they give us, they say a mighty fine.
One rolled off the table and killed a friend of mine.
Oh I don't want to go to Nejeda
dear mom I wanna go home.



Down at Camp Nejeda the campers are better,
they stick their needles in
all filled up with insulin.

Hold the needle straighter
you'll fell better late

Stay on a diet,
you'll be a riot,
4 plus and acetone,
you yell "Mom I wanna go home!!"

Haven't been this happy since we convinced the guy delivering food to let us have a couple blocks of dry ice and threw some in the lake before swim and the rest we put in the dining hall in warm water right before lunch!!!!

emoticon Yes, it is possible to bribe me emoticon

We didn't get printed song books or even single sheets.

You must have grown up in a different century than me (I don't remember too many people but I know that a guy Buddy who himself was a diabetic was my counselor at least twice and that we "Visited" (as a cabin, at 2 AM) the doctor's (personal) cabins at least once per camp session (with fireworks and other fun things)....

Someone started a camp thread which got me to thinking about camp songs. I still remember one tiny little peice of one and would really apprecaite the words to it (and any of the others):

"First you feel rocky, then you feel shocky, that's the way it goes with the sugar blues"

[sugar blues is a reference to the BLUE color of a negative reading on a clinitest urine test {I'm colorblind and I still remember when the other kids in the bunk were laughing hysterically and explaining it to me - mostly about my having to ask my brothers to read the result of the clinitest tests).
