Chant for the Sleepless 

----  Can't sleep?

                         Count some sheep  ----

----  Lose count?

                         Catch a mount  ----

----  Ride him far

                          Ride him fast

          Save his speed for

                            the very last  ----

----  Feed him berries

                            and honey too

          Guard him with camels

                            of the elite and few  ----

----  And when the desert

                           tribes do meet

           Race your steed and

                          know you'll beat

           His brothers and sisters

                          of that farwawy land

            For he is one of Ismael's band  ----

----    Can't sleep?

                          Count some sheep  ----

           Lose count?

                          Catch a mount   ----

----  Ride him fast

                          Ride him far

           Ride him to the

                           Sands of Zanzibar  ----
