Lots of sky out ev’ry night In Egypt,
Sphinx was smiling with delight, In Egypt.
It was in Egypt, on the shore of the Nile,
That Cleopatra used to win them with her smile,
Her Jazz Egyptian Band played,
Jazz Egyptian girls swayed,
In their quaint Jazz Egyptian style,
How she could dance and love,
With the starry sky above,
She had a party all the while,
When her ragtime band played a ragtime tune,
‘Twas a ragtime night with a ragtime moon.
In Egypt on the shore of the Nile.
No one ever had a care In Egypt,
Something doing ev’rywhere In Egypt,
