A politically incorrect song sung by drunken LARPers at Durham University Treasure Trap and the Lorien Trust to the tune of The twelve days of Christmas, with movements. It begins:

On the first day of Ramadan
the prophet sent to me
a camel in a palm tree

On the second day of Ramadan
the prophet sent to me
two Christian knights
and a camel in a palm tree

and continues, (with actions) until:

On the 12th day of Ramadan
the prophet sent to me
twelve whirling dervishes (spin around)
eleven racing camels (run off, then back)
ten new commandments (shout 'Drink beer, drink beer')
nine knackered camels (make the 'camel movement', looking tired)
eight bellies dancing (belly dance)
seven sexy camels (the 'camel movement', but sexy)
six martyrs burning (hop from leg to leg making 'ow!' noises)
five golden camels (just the camel movement, but sing this line slowly.)
four choir boys (hip thrusts)
three more camels (camel movement)
two Christian Knights (hand in the air, look pious)
and a camel in a palm tree (camel movement, then draw two semicircles with your hands from the top at the same time, to symbolise tree

But, then you explain, there are forty days in Ramadan, not twelve. And you're bloody knackered. So, we'll skip to the last verse, which goes...

On the fourtieth day of Ramadan
the prophet sent to me...
40 more camels (chanted, making camel movements.)
39 more camels
38 more camels
37 more camels
...
13 more camels
12 whirling dervishes
etc...

changing direction after thirty and twenty more camels.
