The Get Up Kids – Campfire Kansas lyrics

Woke up at eight, started the fire
Had a few drinks, we all felt inspired
Jumped in the stream, our shoes and canteens
The water was bitter cold
Laid in the raft till it started moving
The current just sang, the song was so soothing
We stopped along the way
On a beach in the sun on a beautiful day
Our boats collide, we'd feel the breeze
We'd stay afloat and make the most of everything
By noon we had swung the ropes in the woods
Missed all danger, snakes and the floods
Burnt by the rays and next to our legs, the water so bitter cold
Lunch had been saved along with the lighters
Wet cigarettes serve us as reminders
Never trust a man with the food, change of clothes, and a drink in his hand
Our boats collide, we'd feel the breeze
We'd stay afloat and make the most of everything
The sun would set, the stars would shine
The trees would shake, we'd all feel fine
Let's take the moon and make it shine for everyone
We laughed away the sunburn
As we laughed away the day
What we lost means nothing
For the memories will stay
Caught the last bus with no time to linger
Driver seemed to be missing a finger
I turned and looked away to the bus, gravel road and a beautiful day
Our boats collide, we'd feel the breeze
We'd stay afloat and make the most of everything
The sun will set, the stars would shine
The trees would shake, we'd all feel fine
Let's take the moon and make it shine for everyone
Let's take the moon and make it shine for everyone
