The sexual urges of camels???

Does onybody know where do the following lines come from?

The sexual urge of a camel is greater than you might think
It can really only be satisfied by going to bed with a sphinx
Now the sphinx has an external orifice clogged up with the sands of the Nile
Hence the hump on the back of the camel and the sphinx's inscrutible smile.

Do you mean 'The hedgehog can never be buggered at all?' It appears in bits and pieces in some of Terry Pratchett's work.

It definitely pre-dates Terry Pratchett. Maybe gave him the idea. It went:

Learned researches at Cambridge
by Darwin, Huxley and Hall
Have proved that only the hedgehog
Can never be buggered at all;
And further researches at Oxford
Have incontrovertibly shown
That comparative safety at [insert name of College]
Is enjoyed by the hedgehog alone.

Both camel and hedgehog verses sung to a tune resembling that of the Eton Boating Song, give or take numerous pints o' bitter.
