  • Night Boat To Cairo !!.....
    It's just gone noon
    Half past monsoon
    On the banks of the river Nile
    Here comes the boat
    Only half-afloat
    Oarsman grins a toothless smile
    Only just one more
    To this desolate shore
    Last boat along the river Nile
    Doesn't seem to care
    No more wind in his hair
    As he reaches his last half mile
    The oar snaps in his hand
    Before he reaches dry land
    But the sound doesn't deafen his smile
    Just pokes at wet sand
    With an oar in his hand
    Floats off down the river Nile
    Floats off down the river Nile
