Let me tell you 'bout Humphrey the camel
Amblin' across the sands (Um)
All the nomads givin' him a great big hand
He's a big ugly mammal and he's very, very hairy
All the sheiks know he's a swingin' dromedary
Uh huh, oh yeah
Talkin' bout Humphrey the camel

In the middle of the night by the light of an Arab moon
They say that you can see him stompin' up and down the dunes
He's a big raunchy cat, but he swings right along
Groovin' to the beat of a Nashville song
Uh huh (uh huh) oh yeah (oh yeah)
Talkin' bout Humphrey the camel

Everybody digs Humphrey the camel
Come see the camel, Humphrey the camel
He's about a jumper, a real hip humper
Talkin' bout Humphrey the camel

Down at the oasis, the Arabs are pickin' their dates
They're goin' to a party up at the Sultan's place
There's a camel named Camelia, and Humphrey's gonna bring 'er
One big drink and he's a seven day swinger
Uh huh (uh huh) oh yeah (oh yeah)
Talkin' bout Humphrey the camel

Authentic camel love call!
Ooooooooooooooooooooooooh
HELP!
Oooooooooooh
HELP! HELP!!

Everybody digs Humphrey the camel

Uh huh (uh huh) oh yeah (oh yeah)
Talkin' bout Humphrey the camel

Oooooooooooooooooooooooooh
HELP!
I'd walk a mile for a oooooooooh
HELP!
Pick it, Omar!
HELP?
