A Christmas Camel
Procol Harum Lyrics


My Amazon six-triggered bride
Now searching for a place to hide
Still sees the truth quite easily
But shrouds all else in mystery
While madmen in top hats and tails
Impale themselves on six-inch nails
And some Arabian also-ran
Impersonates a watering can

Some Santa Claus-like face of note
Entreats my ears to set afloat
My feeble sick and weary brain
And I am overcome with shame
And hide inside my overcoat
And hurriedly begin to quote
While some Arabian sheikh most grand
Impersonates a hot-dog stand

The Red Cross ambulance outside
Can only mean that I must hide
'Til dusk and finally the night
When I will make a hasty flight
Across the sea and far away
To where the weary exiles stay
And some Arabian oil-well
Impersonates a padded cell

Procol is in my humble opinion; the greatest band I've ever heard and sadly ignored by the so called rock community for far to long. Just an opinion!!

Thomas Campbell

Saw them at Filmore East and again at Atlantic City Pop in 1969. 2 Great Shows!

You are so right...to me they are icons....Gary Brookers voice is amazing

Philip Booker

I got to see them at te Fillmore East in NYC twice & your comments are spot on. They were spectacular, truly underrated.

Procol Harum are of the most underrated bands in the history of rock. This great song reminds me a little of Bob Dylan's Ballad Of A Thin Man.

Procol Harum is one of those bands where you can buy their whole album knowing that you'll like every track and not get any disappointing surprises :)

What would be another band that won't disappoint? I would say my Bee Gees. 🤗💎✨

Gregory Lenz

two of my favorite groups from that period; Procol Harum and Jethro Tull.

This album is one of the best debuts I've ever heard.  A near-perfect album.
