MY ORIENTAL DREAM

Here “Oriental” clearly refers to India, not the Middle East, but the content of the lyrics is hardly changed from that along the Nile.

Twilight blazing as I’m gazing
Back there, back where Indian breezes are playing,
Palm trees swaying, passions burning thoughts returning back to
Hindu, Hindu land where love beckons me.

CHORUS:
All I do is long for you, my Oriental Dream,
Indian maid of mine, You haunt me all the time,
Love light in your eyes is paradise, a silv’ry beam,
I am lonely, want you only, Oriental Dream.

Indian queen, of you I dream forever,
Never, dear one, will I grow weary, if you’re near me,
On the breeze floats memories of pleasure, treasure,
Just a dream you seem ever more.

India
