all march and sing:

We’ll follow the Gen-ral wherever he wants to go
He is the one we know, fit to defeat the foe
We’re here at this boot camp, learning more ev’ry day
Learning His love, and learning to work and play.

Here at this boot camp, fun boot camp
A camp where we find the way we ought to live.

And we’re so proud to serve the greatest of them all
For the Gen-er-al’s there whenever we need call!

Hunkalunk: That right there is why I want to be a lifetime bootcamper, be just like you Sarge!

Sarge: Makes me proud to be a part of your bootcamp experience here at Camp Follow-You, for sure.
