Land of desert skies, Far away from you charms tho’ I be,
When the moon doth rise Then I will want you Araby.
Steals before my eyes Visions fair that I’m longing to see,
Take me back, dear land of sighs, My Araby.

Away in Araby Beneath the palms
How I long to see thee, Land of mystic charms,
Sparkling eyes of brown They watch for me,
Soon I’ll wander away out yonder To Araby.

I can hear again camel bells Calling over the sea
Arabs chanting strains Drawing me to Araby
Night’s romantic love,
With a maid who is waiting for me,
In her tent ‘neath stars above in Araby.

Land of mystic splendour, Land so far out yonder,
I hear you calling to me. Calling me over the sea
‘Neath the shady palm trees Soon I’ll be
Once again in that land of Love In Araby.

Land of desert skies, Far away from you charms tho’ I be,
When the moon doth rise Then I will want you Araby.
Steals before my eyes Visions fair that I’m longing to see,
Take me back dear land of sighs, My Araby.
