Out on the Desert of Sahara,
There lives an Arab maid nam’d Sara,
So pretty, so witty,
Just as bright as the stars and
I had to leave this wondrous maiden,
Since then my heart is heavy laden,
Back there I’ll soon be seen
With my Arabian Queen.

CHORUS:

Sara, Queen of Sahara,
There’s no one fairer,
You reign supreme, my wondrous maiden
Sara, I double dare you,
To come away with me, dear, ‘cross the desert land,
We will live, dear, in my caravan,
You’ll always be Queen of the Desert to me.

You’ve heard about the great Sahara,
That’s where I met my sweetheart Sara,
I love her, yes, love her,
By the stars up above and
Beside the pyramids she’s waiting,
Her dreamy eyes are captivating,
That’s why I long to be,
With my Arabian Queen.

SARA, QUEEN OF SAHARA
