A lousy camel

I'm not a huge fan of music written after, say, the development of the electric guitar, but I do have periodic enjoyment of music from my parents' heyday, for whatever reason. Anyhow, I just discovered Steppenwolf about 5 days ago, and I like it. Playing around with seeqpod, I started listening to Magic Carpet Ride and heard the line "I looked around, a lousy camel's all I found". I thought it was odd to write a song about a camel, but hey...

Last night I held Aladdin's lamp
And so I wished that I could stay
Before the thing could answer me
Well, someone came and took the lamp away
I looked around, a lousy candle's all I found
