The cover has the title “My Persian Pearl,” but the music is titled “Persian Pearl.”

 
Pale stars gleaming find me dreaming
Ev’ry night of far-off place;
Morning cheats me, when dawn greets me
Fades my dream of one I’d love to face.

CHORUS:
Persian Pearl how I yearn to return my dream girl
Each day seems like a year till I’m near in my dreams
Persian Pearl my poor heart from the start’s been a whirl
Mate! Fate bids me tell you wait
Persian Pearl.

Though in night shade, you’re but dream maid
Yet I know we shall meet some day;
By gold sands fair, we’ll hold hands there
While sunbirds on palm trees gently sway.
