The desert skies gleam blue tonight
For you my goddes[s] fair
My lonely heart cries out tonight
I see you ev’rywhere.

CHORUS:
Orienta, Orienta, there’s magic in your dancing
Orienta, Orienta, your voice is so entrancing
Orienta, Orienta, “Tis just for you I cry
Orienta, Orienta, for love of you I die.

Neath eastern stars you came to me
Just in the magic hour
With eyes that haunt and lips that taunt
Just like a passion flow’r.
