Camel train cargo heading out west
caravan of fortune on the trail to Marrakech
sultan of the desert looks at his shrinking land
countless tribes of nomads invade his precious sand

The sands of time shift slowly
in the warm wind of scirocco
the magic and the mystery
remains still in Morocco

Camel train cargo heading out east
Sahara sunset the massive golden beast
dune and dust storm slow the tired tribe
but Casablanca calls them ever onward into the night

Early morning Casbah in full Moroccan swing
African and Spaniard in hectic bargaining
dry and dusty argument with tempers getting frayed
no one cares or notices the steel of the blade

Ill equipped safaris attempt the dry terrain
but timeless trail across the void has conquered once again
men come and go many try most do or die
and ship of the desert grins and winks knowing eye
