Published by EMI Music.
This is the John Peel version. No other versions.


you always said i should follow my star
take a chance and i might go far
i wanna ride a camel, wanna smoke a cigar
i wanna be a king of Orient-ah
oh, wanna be a king of orient-ah
wanna be a king of orient-ah

gonna settle for the man with money
sounds like fun but it's just not funny
gonna get a camel, gonna sell my car
gonna be a king of orient-ah
oh, gonna be a king of orient-ah

got some spice and a little cigar
wanna get a keyring with a golden guitar
wanna find a babe that's born under a star
then i'll be a king of orient-ah
gonna be a king of orient-ah
going to be a king of orient-ah
gonna be a king of orient-ah
