  1. No joke, I wrote this cheer in 1966 when I was Head Yell Leader at U. S. Grant High School in Van Nuys, California. As originally written, the cheer started as Racka-Chicka-Boom. Following graduation, I worked for the summer at Stanley Ranch, a Woodcraft Rangers organization camp for kids, and introduced Racka-Chicka-Boom around a campfire. A number of years later, I sang it at a family Y camp gathering. Since then, I have seen the evolution of the lyrics, but the basic call and response, repeated 3 times, has remained the same. I do want to note that between each verse there is a bridge which makes it specific to the school or camp or whatever. For example, originally the first bridge is: (still call and response)

    I said a riff raff row
    I said a riff raff ree
    U. S. Grant ( or Stanley Ranch or Family Y Camp)
    Have mercy
    A-ha
    O yea
    One more time
    One more time

    So long as the last word of the second line (ree) rhymes with the last word of the fourth line (mercy), you can make up anything (rile = moving in style; or rests = you’re the best) and so on. Fresh ground for more creative versions of Racka Chicka Boom or, as it has evolved to, Boom Chicka Boom.

  2. My favourite verse is
    Like a mathematician!

    I said a 2 + 2

    I said a 2+2

    I said a 2 plus a 20 plus a 20’s 42

    I said math is hard

    But that’s okay

    I said one more time

  3. At camp Cristina which I an all outdoor camp it is like a jungle so at the amphitheater we all go and do camp songs and sprit checks to win the sprit stick and it is so much fun

  8. I just went to camp for a week at camp wahsega for 4-h and we did this song 10000000000 times and other chants that are on this website!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. For StarWars we did “I said a zoom chicka zoom, I said a zoom chicka zoom. I said a Luke I am your father come to the dark side.”

    • Hi Sienna! As you probably know, every camp has a different version of every song! This is a version that I’ve found on several different sites and that I have been taught by many different people. We’re working hard to include other versions of the songs that we already have on our website but it’s a time consuming job. If you could be more specific about why you feel this version is not quite right that would be super helpful and we’ll be sure to include your alternate version right away! If you prefer, you can send your version to campsongs1@gmail.com.
