The Camel’s Complaint
stanza1.mp3

Canary-birds feed on sugar and seed
Parrots have crackers to crunch
And as for the poodles they tell me the noodles
Have chicken and cream for their lunch
But there’s never a question
About my digestion
Anything does for me

stanza2.mp3

Cats you’re aware can repose in a chair
Chickens can roost upon rails
Puppies are able to sleep in a stable
And oysters can slumber in pails
But no one supposes
A poor camel dozes
Any place does for me

stanza3.mp3

Lambs are enclosed where it’s never exposed
Coops are constructed for hens
Kittens are treated to houses well heated
And pigs are protected by pens
But a camel comes handy
Wherever it’s sandy
Anywhere does for me

stanza4.mp3

People would laugh if you rode a giraffe
Or mounted the back of an ox
It’s nobody’s habit to ride on a rabbit
Or try to bestraddle a fox
But as for a camel he’s
Ridden by families
Any load does for me

stanza5.mp3

A snake is as round as a hole in the ground
And weasels are wavy and sleek
And no alligator could ever be straighter
Than lizards that live in a creek
But a camel’s all lumpy
And bumpy and humpy
Any shape does for me
