Trudging like a loaded camel
'Neath the sun the whole day through
Skirmishing to Bul-el Shabat (Town on Suez Road
Marching out to number two
Land of corn and land of "can", "can", – CAN.CAN (Native dance)
Land of Wassah tell us why – WASSA (Latin Quarter)
If we have a little patience
While they stop this "standing by"
I dreamt last night I was in heaven
Things were similar up there
Routine orders – by St.Peter
Colonel of the maxine choir
Polish up your harps & haloes.
Mind the planchette is dry
