"Canary-birds feed on sugar and seed,
            Parrots have crackers to crunch;
And as for the poodles, they tell me the noodles
            Have chickens and cream for their lunch.
            But there's never a question
            About MY digestion­
            ANYTHING does for me!

"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!

"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!

"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!

"A snake is as round as a hole in the ground;
            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!"
