"THE CAMEL'S NOSE"

Narrator: It was late one night,
And the soft moonlight was shining on the desert sand,
When an old man went to go to sleep in his tent.
Then suddenly he heard his camel say,

Camel: "Oh, it's cold outside, won't you please let me slide
Just my nose inside your nice warm tent?"
Narrator: The old man said,
Old Man: "Oh no!"
Narrator: But the camel wouldn't go,
and he put his nose into the tent.

Narrator: Well, it wasn't long before the camel wanted more,
Camel: "Just my head and ears!"
Narrator: He begged and begged. When the old man said,
Old Man: "Okay."
Narrator: Then followed the same way his neck, his shoulders
and front legs. But then came his hump, his back legs and his rump
Old Man: "It's too much!"
Narrator: The old man cried. But the camel called his friends,
and the old man in the end was sleeping on the sand out side! So...

Chorus 1
Don't let a camel get his nose in your tent.
No, don't you give in and compromise with wrong.
Remember the old man who wound up sleeping on the sand;
Always stand your ground whenever that big nose comes around.

Narrator: A tiny compromise may seem so small in size,
it may not seem so small at first.
But little habits can soon start to control your mind and heart
Old Man: And your problems will just get worse!
Narrator: So beware of evil deeds that grow and spread like weeds;
guard your heart and don't let them be gin.
If you surrender and consent to let camels in your tent,
Old Man: You will lose in the end!

Oh...

Chorus 2
Don't let a camel get his nose in your tent.
No, don't you give in and compromise with wrong.
Remember the old man who wound up sleeping on the sand;
Always stand your ground whenever that big nose comes a round!

Oh...

[Repeat Chorus 2]
