I’ve always had a fancy
To ride upon a camel,
To ride upon a camel like a Sheik.
I rode thro’ the Sahara
On a brute they call’d “Cascara,”
But Gee! I only stood it for a week.

CHORUS:
Click! Clack! Click!
There ain’t no kick
Riding on a camel in the desert.
In that land of red hot sand,
Riding on a camel in the desert.
Bump! Bump! Bump!
Bump! Bump! Bump!
Now I know the reason why the camel’s got a hump!
I shall never, never go
All the way to Jericho,
Riding on a camel in the desert!

I struck a nice Oasis
With buttercups and daises,
A girl they call’d Amasis there I found,
That little Arab’s daughter
Was selling pints of water,
I drank so much the bill cost me a pound.
