The Walrus at work Lyr Req: Regimental Songs (84* d) Lyr Add: THE CAMEL CORPS 27 May 02


If you want the words, I'll try to sort something out when I get home. In the mean time, just to jeep this thread alive:

THE CAMEL CORPS (Royal Marines Camel Detatchment Sudan) (TUNE:- Auld Lang Syne)

When I was first recruited, boys,
To serve out Gracious Queen,
The Sergeant made me for to know
That I was a Royal Marine.
He said sometimes they serve on ships
And sometime serve ashore
But he never said that I'd wear spurs
And serve in the Camel Corps

I've ridden a horse,
I've ridden a moke,
I've ridden a railway train,
I've ridden a ship, I've ridden a boat
And I hope to do so again,
But now I ride an animal Marines ne'er rode before
Dressed up in spurs and pataloons
To serve in the Camel Corps

Any use?
