BY THE DREAMY NILE

BY THE DREAMY NILE
BY THE DREAMY NILE
Song

Daniels & Wilson, San Francisco

In Allah’s Garden lives a maiden I love,
Where flow’rs are blending with starlight above
My heart leads meon,
To find the one,
Whose wonderful charms lure me to her arms.

CHORUS:
Come and dream awhile
By the dreamy Nile
When the evening shades veil the mystic glades;
Incense fills the air while the lovers there
Spoon beneath the moonbeams in Egyptian style
Lad of dusky shade comes to serenade
On the promenade to his little maid;
Night of silv’ry calm; there beneath the palm,
Lovers dream a while
By the dreamy Nile.

Pale lotus blossoms scent the languid breeze,
Star-beams are gleaming thru whispering trees
From bowers near a voice I hear
Oh dearest yield all to tender love’s call.
