[To the tune of Over the River and through the Woods]

Over the river and through the woods
Away from the cops we run.
The police know the camps
They'll be targeting next
And We've run out of places to go-o.

Over the river and through the woods
We stay out of sight, you know.
The rangers will ticket us, then take our stuff
And the cops? Off to jail we go.

Over the river and through the woods
City Council's hats I spy.
They're pointed and black
And they'll give us no slack
'Cause developers bought them a pie.

Over the river and through the woods
We are  residents just like you.
We're down on our luck
And we don't got a buck
But we have hopes and dreams do come true.

[To the tune of Jingle Bells]

Dashing through the woods
To escape from being caught.
How funny, if you have no home
That sleep's against the law.

Rental prices soar.
Shelter beds are rare.
Still, if you're caught asleep outside
You're bound to go to jail.

Salvation Army bells, donations swell
I still don't have a home.
Oh what peace, It'd be to sleep
In a jail free camping zone.

[No ill towards Salvation Army intended.  It just
seemed to fit well and that in spite of all the
efforts towards helping people experiencing
homelessness, some are still forced to sleep outside]
