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 dampen 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

[Incomprehensible]

Barson, Michael / Mcpherson, Graham
