Riff on Julie Prince and Princess


Julie's Ransom Note

My oil Sheik
Omar Shariff
Drove me in his jeep
To Al-Kaliq;

I am Princess
Number five
On camel milk
I survive;

I think he's tired
Of me now;
He'll trade me for
A goat or cow.

Behind those velvet eyes
Was someone barmy;
Learning Arabic;
Send the U.S. Army

Bright stars, yellow stars, flashing through the air,
Are you errant strands of Lady Mary's hair?
