Wellies and Sun Cream


It's that time of year
To load up all the gear
The car is packed
Top to bottom front to back
Cos camping time is here!

And you can bet the weather will be extreme
So don't forget your wellies and sun cream
One welly, two wellies, sun cream

Camping stove, and a pan
Gas that comes in a can
Then it looks like you'll be pitching
The entire bloody kitchen
And you wish that you'd hired a van

And of course the weather's gonna be extreme
So leave room for your wellies and sun cream
One welly, two wellies, sun cream

Putting up the tent
All the pegs are bent
And you're putting the poles
In all the wrong holes
Cos you can't remember where they went

And of course the weather is already extreme
But where are your wellies and sun cream?
One welly, two wellies, sun cream

Now we all agree
That right now would be
Time to settle
And put on the kettle
Now who wants a cup of tea?

Sitting in a field and living the dream
In your waterproofs and wellies and sun cream
One welly, two wellies, sun cream

Get ready for the night
Sun setting on the site
Buy some logs
And feed the dogs
And get that fire alight

Looking at the sky and the last sunbeam
All fine in your wellies and sun cream
One welly, two wellies, sun cream

Fairy lights light the porches
Everyone gets their torches
The kids are mellow
As they toast a marshmallow
And the sun no longer scorches

Mug of hot chocolate with some squirty cream
Warm in your wellies and sun cream
One welly, two wellies, sun cream

Now you need a pee
It's dark enough for a camping wee
Too far to the loo
And you don't need a poo
So you just go behind a tree

You hope nobody sees you midstream
Squatting in your wellies and sun cream
One welly, two wellies, sun cream

Those that you hold dear
All are in good cheer
Forgetting their cares
In fold up chairs
Now let's have another beer

Sitting round the campfire letting off steam
Happy in your wellies and sun cream
One welly, two wellies, sun cream

The faces that you love and know
Lit up in an orange glow
Beneath the stars
And playing guitars
And singing along with gusto

The weather's fine now so it would seem
No need for your wellies and sun cream
One welly, two wellies, sun cream

Overnight the wind is intense
Battering the tents
Cosy in your sleeping bag
As the tent starts to sag
And you wait for the morning in suspense

As you drift off to sleep and start to dream
You dream of wellies and sun cream
One welly, two wellies, sun cream

In the morning at 8 o'clock
You head to the shower block
But you left it too long
The hot water has all gone
And you stand there and shiver in shock

Get dressed and head on back to the team
To put on your wellies and sun cream
One welly, two wellies, sun cream

These special times with friends
We love these long weekends
Even when we moan
That we can't charge our phone
We wish that it would never end

Sitting in a field and living the dream
Happy in our wellies and sun cream
One welly, two wellies, sun cream

Packing up to go home is a pain
And of course it is in the rain
But it wouldn't be camp
If it wasn't all damp
And we can't wait to do it again

And of course the weather is completely extreme
As we pack up our wellies and sun cream
One welly, two wellies, sun cream
One welly, two wellies, sun cream
One welly, two wellies, sun cream
