CAMEL WALK, THE
Ev’rybody’s raving ’bout these dances new,
Well, I’ve seen a few but none will do;
Listen just a minute I’ll explain to you,
One that’s bound to cause talk.
I saw it out in Africa upon the sand
Of the Sahara grand,
done by the desert band;
The music so entrancing set the caravan a-dancing,
And they call’d it the camel walk.
Sway from side to side in that dromedary stride,
Feet a-thumping, shoulders humping,
You start to ramble
Just like a camel.
Point your toes out wide,
As across the floor you glide;
It sure is full of pep,
That camel step,
Don’t balk, but do the funny camel walk.
You don’t have to take a drink for days and days,
For the good taste stays with you always;
Ev’ry time that raggy draggy music plays,
You must join in the fun.
It keeps your head a-spinning ’round just like a top,
You’ll never want to stop until you have to drop;
It sure is some invention,
so just give me your attention,
And I’ll show you how it is done.
