[Ted plays his guitar while singing.]

I love the mountains. I love the rolling hills.

I love the blue skies. I love the daffodils.

I love the campfire when the lights are low.

CHORUS:

Boom-de-ah-da, boom-de-ah-da, boom-de-ah-da, boom-de-ah-da

Boom-de-ah-da, boom-de-ah-da, boom-de-ah-da, boom-de-ah-da

Boom-de-ah-da, boom-de-ah-da, boom-de-ah-da, boom-de-ah-da

I love the campfire when the lights are low.
