Mary-kate & Ashley Olsen – The Bare Necessities lyrics

To pack for camping there's just two rules,
Do we need it, is it cool?
Here's the stuff that we really need,
Just the bare necessities.

Hunters dressed like Mata Hari!
We're going camping not on safari,
Lederhosen, a pick axe and socks?
For climbing the Alps, we'll be climbing up rocks!


You've got to kidding me; it's a real necessity,
Not, hairdryers need electricity, and what's this?
Frozen dinners, this one's my fave,
And where you going to find a microwave?


What now? An outfit to wear in case of danger,
I'm just a camper, not a park ranger,
No more jokes it's understood,
We can be comfy, and still look good!
