Subject: Lyr Req: Camel songs - anyone know one?
From: GUEST,Richard
Date: 27 Jan 03 - 01:38 PM

For a 1940s revue I am looking for a song about a camel. I've checked the database but nothing there is appropriate. Ideally it will be good for mixed company and sort of a novelty song, like some of the Flanders and Swan songs. Any ideas?

It should be pointed out for the benefit of younger/US/FDA readers that the "LSD" referred to in Ali-Baba's Camel is the "pounds shillings and pence" variety, and not any other kind you may know of. It's a scary enough song without psychedelic pside-effefects!

There's also "You Can't Get to Heaven on the Back of a Camel" by Doug Horley, a.k.a. Duggie Dug Dug to his 5 year-old fans. If you are desperate, I can rustle up the lyrics. It's a kind of "Yeee-haah Grand Old Oprey"- type tune.

"In the Desert", on _At the Drop of Another Hat_. "Verbludi" is Russian for "camels".

A song by Kipling that _mentions_ camels is:

The camel's hump is an ugly hump,
As well you may see at the zoo,
But uglier yet is the hump _we_ get
From having too little to do.

Kiddies and grownups too,
When we haven't enough to do,
We all get the hump,
Camelious hump,
The hump that is black and blue.

Subject: ADD: Hi Jolly
From: Joe Offer
Date: 28 Jan 03 - 08:24 PM

Oh, I forgot about "Hi Jolly." I'm not particularly impressed by this transcription, but it's the only one I could find just now. Source is this site. The only recording I recall is by the New Christy Minstrels, and I have a hunch the song was written by Randy Sparks. You'[ll also find another stab at the lyrics in this thread (click).

HI JOLLY

Hi Jolly was a camel driver, long time ago
He followed Mr. Bueno way out west - Yee-haw!
Didn't mind the burning sand in that God-forsaken land
And he didn't mind the pretty gals the best.

   I'm singin' Hi Jolly, Hey Jolly 20 miles a day, by golly
   20 miles before the morning light Wee-chaw!
   Hi Jolly, Hey ya Gotta get on my way ya
   Told my gal I'd be home Sunday night.

There's pretty girls in Alberquerque
'Least that's what they say,
There's pretty gals in Tucumtary too
Woo-hoo!
But honey don't you mind
I won't pay them anytime
'Cause I'm savin' all my lovin' just for you

   I'm singin' Hi Jolly....

Old timers down in Arizona tell you that it's true
It's true!
That you can see Hi Jolly's ghost a-ridin' through
Ooooh
When the desert moon is high
He comes riding into sight
Driving 4 and 20 camels over the hill.

   I'm singin' Hi Jolly....




this site has the story of Hi Jolly, but it's lengthy.


Here's a piece from the Chamber of Commerce at Quartzite, Arizona:

Grave of Hi Jolly

There is an scattering of old landmarks around Quartzsite, but the big attraction is the grave of Hadji Ali (Hi Jolly), the Arab camel driver. In 1935, the Governor of Arizona dedicated the pyramid, which marks his gravesite. This pyramid is one of the most visited spots in the southwest.

Hi Jolly (that is now the foreign name sounded to the desert people) came here from his native Syria during the mid 1850's with score or more of North African camels. They had been ordered by the U.S. Army for a desert experiment, and Hi Jolly was hired as the chief camel driver.

The Army hoped that the camels would make excellent beasts of burden in this desert country. But, camels were not compatible with the Army's mules, and the entire plan was junked in 1864.

On February 26, 1864, thirty-four camels were auctioned off at Benecia, CA, and the remaining sixty-six camels were auctioned off at Camp Verde on March 18,1866. A camels found homes in California zoos, while others were bought by circus and side shows eventually being turned loose in the desert.

Hi Jolly kept a few camels and tried to operate a freighting business between Colorado River port cities and the mining camps to the east. Although the camels could carry up to 600 pounds of good and travel more than 60 miles a day without water, his plan, like the Army's did not work out. In 1868, Hi Jolly went to work prospecting and scouting on the side for the government.

Hi Jolly died in 1902. The grave is marked by what has been called the "centerpiece of the cemetery." When you visit you will find a large pyramid made of the stones from the area, and topped by a copper camel.

You can find the Grave of Hadji Ali approximately one mile west on Business Loop 10 from the intersection of SR 95 and B-10.

Here's an old song that my Dad sings...

I've always had a fancy to ride upon a camel
to ride upon a camel like a sheik
I rode across Sahara on a brutethey called Cascara
and gosh I only stood it for a week

Click clack click there ain't no kick
riding on a camel in the desert
in that land of red hot sand
riding on a camel in the desert
I would never never go, all the way to Jerico
riding on a camel in the desert

We struck a nice oasis with buttercups and daisies
and a girl they called Omaisis there I found
this little Arab's daughter was selling pits of water
I drank so much the bill cost me a pound

Click clack click there ain't no kick
riding on a camel in the desert
in that land of red hot sand

Not as good as Oonts but Kipling also wrote this . There must have been a tune in his mind.
They must have had a lot of trouble with those camels.


COMMISSARIAT CAMELS

WE haven't a camelty tune of our own
To help us to trollop along,
But every neck is a hair trombone
(Rtt-ta-ta-ta! is a hair trombone!)
And this is our marching song:
Can't!   Don't! Shan't! Won't!
Pass it along the line!
Somebody's pack has slid from his back
Ónly wish that it was mine!
Somebody's load has tipped off in the road-
Cheer for a halt and a row!
Urr! Yarrh! Grr! Arrh!
Somebody's catching it now!

Old Kippers wrote most of his stuff with a view to it being recited or sung, so he often had a tune in mind. You can usually find one or two that fit, and if you can't, Peter Bellamy probably wrote one.

For what it's worth!
From a song my father used to sing (60 years ago!)

Ha, Ha, Ha, You and Me,
Now I know the reason why
A Camel's got a hump,
Riding on a camel Oh,
All the way to Jericho,
Riding on a camel in the desert.

Useful mnemonic:
If you can't tel a bactrian camel from a dromedary, spell them with upper case initials. lay the initials on their backs, The Bactrian has two humps, The Dromedary only one.
