BY THE DREAMY NILE
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.
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.
