The “temple” of the pharaoh meets the “domes” of the mosques for the improbable hybrid shrine repleat with bells from a church.

Shadows fall from purple Temple domes,
And that is when my fancy roams,
Back to my dusky little desert Rose,
Shadows on the Lotus covered walls,
Seems I can hear a voice that calls,
I’m always dreaming at the daylight’s close,
Palms are swaying,
Someone’s saying,
Allah, won’t you listen to my plea
And send my love again to me,
For how I’m yearning only Allah knows.

CHORUS:
When it’s twilight on the Nile,
Shadow Palms, their lonesome psalms are sighing,
Then it’s my light all the while,
Two eyes will glow with love-light splendor,
So sweet and tender,
Shadows in two dreamy eyes,
Lift to mine a tale of sweet surrender,
While Temple bells are ringing
I’ll meet you when it’s Twilight on the Nile.
