In The Middle of The Desert

Me and my camel were
not doing so well.
We needed some water
or a wishing well.
My tongue was hanging out,
my face was turning red,
If we didn't find an oasis
with water pretty soon
I'd be dead.
I wiped the sweat from my brow,
adjusted the turban on my head,
that's when I spotted an
oasis straight ahead.
There a fair maiden met us,
a vessel of cool water
in her hand, I quenched my thirst
and then she took my hand.
"Come with me, I grant
a wish to you."
She led me to a silky pond,
we talked, we swam, we shared
some kisses too.
In the middle of the desert
me and a maiden shared water
from a wishing well.
Tonight we sleep in each others
arms, tomorrow perhaps I'll have
beautiful stories to tell.
