Parenthood – The Diarrhea Song

Long before the current NBC TV show gave an updated spin on the franchise, Ron Howard directed the movie Parenthood in 1989, which opened with a song sung by a kid (who looks a little bit like a young Ron Howard), that he learned, of all places, at summer camp.

Perhaps you learned the same song when you went to camp too. I’m pretty sure that’s where I first heard it.

But then again, maybe it was this movie.

What were some of the songs you learned at summer camp that were good for annoying your parents with on road trips?
