Marrakesh Express Lyrics

Whoopa, hey mesa, hooba huffa, hey meshy goosh goosh.

Looking at the world through the sunset in your eyes,
Traveling the train through clear Moroccan skies
Ducks and pigs and chickens call,
animal carpet wall to wall
American ladies...

    This song is a straightforward description of an actual train ride Graham Nash took in North Africa.

    In the beginning, he was travelling first class in a luxurious private suite, as a wealthy Englishman naturally would. But after a while, he decided it would be more interesting to move to another car, where ordinary Arabs and poorer tourists ride.

    In the back cars, the ordinary Arabs really do travel with their livestock. Nash found that he had a lot more fun travelling among the working class Arabs and lower class tourists than with other rich people.

    Is this one a delightful ditty about checking out the wonders of Morocco, or is it just smoking some Marrakech weed and enjoying a great buzz?
