Night—I was so lonely on the desert drifting sand,
Moonlight above,
Night—I felt your tender lips that brushed across my hand,
Lips made for love;
With a magic kiss you stole my heart,
You never meant it from the start,
The moon is low but there’s no romance in it’s [sic] glow,
For we’re apart.

CHORUS:
Dust on the moon since you are gone dear,
There’s dust on the moon,
And in darkness I croon
Our little love song that ended too soon,
Mellow beams from above,
Are only shadows without you my love,
And they never will shine until you are mine,
Dust is on the moon.

Ya-mi corazón y mi alma se han de morir,
De dolor,
Porque no veran jamas tus ojos de zahori,
Y de pasión;
Si- pudiera hacerte yo vivir,
Verte de nuevo junto a mi,
Si otra vez tu boca pudiera besar,
Dulce ilusión.

Chorus
Habia una vez, una Princesa divina oriental,
Qe prendada quedo,
De un servidor de su corte gentil,
Mas el Rey ordonóse gura muerte al pobre infeliz,
Y las pobre Princesa llora su amor,
En este cantar.
