The Camel's hump is an ugly hump
Which well you may see at the zoo;
But uglier yet is the hump we get
From having too little to do.

Kiddies and grown-ups too-oo-oo,
If we haven't enough to doo-oo-oo
    We get the hump -
    Camelious hump -
The hump that is black and blue!

We climb out of bed with a frouzly head
And a snarly-yarly voice.
We shiver and scowl and we grunt and we growl
At our bath and our boots and our toys;

And there ought to be a corner for me
(And I know there is one for you)
    When we get the hump -
    Camelious hump -
The hump that is black and blue!

The Cure for this ill is not to sit still
Or frowst with a book by the fire;
But to take a large hoe and a shovel also,
And dig till you gently perspire;

And then you will find that the sun and the wind
And the Djinn of the Garden too,
    Have lifted the hump -
    The horrible hump -
The hump that is black and blue!

I get it as well as you-oo-oo -
If I haven't enough to do-oo-oo!
    We all get the hump -
    Camelious hump -
Kiddies and grown-ups too!
