WHERE ORIENT ROSES BLOOM

Song
Silvio Hein
Robert B. Smith

Paradise of Mahomet

Where Orient roses bloom,
‘Mid gardens full of sweet perfume:
There silver fountains play,
Sweet music fills the air always
There the bulbuls song
Sounds the whole day long;
Love songs to the flow’rs
Thro’ the golden hours.

The Oriental life I love,
Where skies are azure blue above;
Life’s a dream of pleasure and delight,
Dreaming all the day and all the night.
To idle happy hours away,
All life’s a merry holiday,
To hear the rippling fountain play for aye,
To idle happy hours away,
All life’s a merry, merry holiday,
To hear the rippling fountains play for aye.
