Night Boat To Cairo!!...

It's just gone noon
Half past monsoon
On the banks of the river Nile
Here comes the boat
Only half-afloat
Oarsman grins a toothless smile
Only just one more
To this desolate shore
Last boat along the river Nile
Doesn't seem to care
No more wind in his hair
As he reaches his last half mile
The oar snaps in his hand
Before he reaches dry land
But the sound doesn't deafen his smile
Just pokes at wet sand
With an oar in his hand
Floats off down the river Nile
Floats off down the river Nile Writer(s): Michael Barson, Lee Jay Thompson, Cathal Joseph Smyth, Daniel Woodgate, Christopher Foreman, Mark Bedford, Graham Mcpherson
