  • Lyrics
  • You've heard of Ali Baba, forty thieves had he
    Out for what we all want, lots of L.S.D.
    He also had a camel, stole it from a zoo
    How he loved the camel, and the camel loved him too
    (Oh, how the how the camel loved Ali Bar Bar!)

    Ali Baba's camel loved Ali Baba so
    No matter where he went to, the camel had to go
    Some say that he's in Heaven, but this I know is true
    Wherever you think Ali has gone, his camel's gone there too

    Crossing the Equator, oooo, how hot it was
    Poor old Ali Baba cursed and swore, because
    He was so very thirsty, and everybody knows
    It's horrible to walk for miles with sand between your toes
    (Oh, how the camel loved Ali Baba... brrrrr!)

    Ali Baba's camel turned round and licked his hand
    He said, "Oh, Ali Baba, I surely understand
    We must find an oasis and get a drink somehow
    But, hark! I hear the temple bells, they'll all be open now"
    (Bleah bleah. Glorious beer, fills you right up with it... aaahh)

    They entered for the races at the desert sports
    There goes Ali's camel in his filthy cotton shorts
    The starter cracked his pistol, off the camel's hared
    Ali Baba's camel wins by half a camel's hair
    (Hey Ali Baba! Hey Ali Baba!)
    (Your camel loves you! Your camel loves you!)

    Ali Baba's camel had run for miles and miles
    His tail was pointing backwards, that's how a camel smiles
    But Ali and his camel, they both were out of breath
    They'd run so far, they laughed so much
    They laughed themselves to death
    [Sounds of crying and wailing)

    Oh! Gather round the campfire! Sing a roundelay!
    But don't sing out of tune, though
    ('Cause eggs are cheap today!)
    Sing of Ali Baba, sing about his men
    Sing about his camel, and then sing it all again
    (Oh, how the camel loved Ali Baba)

    Ali Baba's camel loved Ali Baba so
    No matter where he went to, that camel had to go
    Some say that he's in Heaven, but this I know as well
    Wherever you think Ali has gone, his camel's gone to.....

    (Hey, give us a tune there, Jock......Ya-hoo!)
