UNDERNEATH THE DREAMY ORIENTAL MOON

UNDERNEATH THE DREAMY ORIENTAL MOON

Down in Cairo long ago lived a sweet Egyptian maid,
Raven tresses lingering caresses, eyes of dusky shade;
When comes a lover fond and true,
This maid of Cairo he would woo,
And when the moon was softly shining,
To her he would sing. My sweetheart

CHORUS:
Love me, love me,
Underneath the dreamy oriental moon,
Love me, love me,
Oriental nights are only meant for spooning, crooning,
Love me, while the stars that shine above me
seem to say with twinkling eyes so tender,
Moonlight, it’s the time for all who love to linger,
Underneat[h] the dancing, tenderly entrancing,
Dreamy oriental moon.

One sad day he went away from that land of mystery,
Told his little oriental flower he’d come back some day;
Each night in the moonlight’s soft glow,
In vain she would yearn for him so,
each star, each moonbeam softly shining,
Seemed to her would say. My sweetheart
