a.k.a.
Type of Skit Funny
# of Participants 2
Props Needed: a rope, a roll of clear, somewhat sticky tape

Action

Camper 1: Ladies and gentlemen! Be quiet, now! Thank you. We have a very special treat for you tonight. We have acquired some very rare dancing zebras! And now, for your viewing please, here they–

Camper 2: No, no, we can’t bring them out here.

Camper 1: What?! Why not? The audience is dying to see them!

Camper 2: Because of that. (Points to the rope on the ground)

Camper 1: Oh, right. Yes, that is a problem. The dancing zebras might trip and fall over a rope like that. Well, I guess that’s it, we can’t do the show.

Camper 2: Yes we can! We just need to tape it down or something. Oh look, I have some here. (Pulls a roll of tape out of his/her pocket)

Camper 1: Oh, you’ve saved the day! Here, give me the tape and I’ll fix this problem.

Camper 2: No, no, I can do it. See, I just need to unroll a little bit– (gets tape stuck to his/her hands). Uh oh. It’s still usable, we can just peel it off carefully. (Starts to peel the tape off of his/her hand.)

Camper 1: Oh, don’t be silly! Give it here, I’ll do it! (Takes the tape from Camper 2, accidentally winding it around Camper 2)

Camper 2: Wait, wait, you’re wasting it! Don’t go any further. We can save this. (starts rolling the tape back onto the roll.)

Camper 1:No, no, no! Give it here, you’re wrecking it! You can’t wind it back onto the roll once you’ve unrolled it! (takes the tape back and gets even more tangled in it)

(This action should continue on a bit longer until almost the entire roll of tape is used up and Camper 1 & 2 are rolled up in it.)

Camper 1: ENOUGH! (rips all of the tape off of self). YOU RUINED THE SKIT! (winds the rest of the tape around Camper 2 and Exits)

Camper 2: Wait! Wait! I can fix this! (jumps after Camper 1)

Lyrics

v.1
Have you ever been a-fishing on a hot summer day,
And seen all the little fishies swimming up and down the bay,
With their hands in their pockets and their pockets in their pants
And all the little fishies doin’ the boogie woogie dance.

CHORUS
Tra-la-la-la-la, tra-la-la-la.
Tra-la-la-la-la, tra-la-la-la.
With their hands in their pockets and their pockets in their pants.
All the little fishies doin’ the boogie woogie dance.

v.2
Have you ever been fishing on a hot and sunny day
And you’re sitting on a bench and the bench gives way,
With an alligator snapping at the seat of your pants,
And all the little fishies doin’ the boogie woogie dance.

CHORUS

v.3
Have you ever been fishing on a cold, cold day
And seen all the little fishies frozen solid in the bay,
With their hands in their pockets and their pockets on their pants
And it’s too darn cold to do the boogie woogie dance.

CHORUS

v.4
Have you ever been fishing on a rainy, rainy day,
And seen all the little fishies with umbrellas in the bay,
With their hands in their pockets and their pockets on their pants,
All the little fishies doin’ the boogie woogie dance.

CHORUS

v.5
Have you ever been fishing on a hot and cold day,
And seen all the little fishies all confused in the bay,
With their hands in their pockets and their pockets on their shirts,
And they’re too darn confused to do the boogie woogie dance.

CHORUS

There was a cow down on the farm
Moo, Moo, Moo, Moo, Moo, Moo
She gave fresh milk without alarm
Moo, Moo, Moo, Moo, Moo, Moo
One day she drank from a frozen stream
Moo, Moo, Moo, Moo, Moo, Moo
Now she gives up ice cream!
Moo, Moo, Moo, Moo, Moo, Moo, Moo

*This song can be sung either as a simple repeat-after-me song or as a take away song.*
Little cabin in the woods (draw shape of cabin in the air)
Little old man at the window stood (hold hands up to eyes like binoculars, looking around)
Saw a rabbit hopping by (hop on the spot)
Running away from harm (run on the spot)
Help me, help me, help me, he said (pretend to beg)
Before the hunter shoots me dead (shoot with a pretend gun OR clap hands to the beat)
Come, little rabbit, come inside (gesture to come in)
Safely we will hide (stroke one hand with the other)
