WHILE THE SAHARA SLEEPS

WHILE THE SAHARA SLEEPS
Song
Horatio Nichols
Eddie Stamper
The Lawrence Wright Music Co., London
The chorus is also harmonized for a quartet.

Under burning desert skies,
Dreaming of two desert eyes,
Big Arab Chief with his caravan,
To Allah cries.
When the mighty sandstorm calms,
My love shall lie in my arms.
CHORUS:
While the Sahara sleeps,
And the pale moon peeps,
Then your love shall surrender,
While the Sahara sleeps,
To your side I’ll creep,
Craving kisses so tender,
Two sweet lips to thrill me,
Arms like the clinging vine,
While the Sahara sleeps,
I’ll come to take you, and make you mine.

Tho’ the desert night is fleet,
You will wake to incense sweet,
My slaves shall bring jewels rich and rare,
Lay at your feet.
Nothing else can I bestow,
You stole my heart long ago.
