How I love arabian stories,
Tales of oriental glories
Wand’ring through the mystic maze
Of ancient Bagdad Days
Allah’s palaces of magic
Sultans harems gay or tragic
Oh, what fun we could have had
With gentle Sharazad:

CHORUS:
Dreaming Sweet Arabian Dreams,
Of gardens gleaming
By their mystic streams
The kind they had in
Days when brave Aladdin
Wooed his Queen all clad in
Silk that blooms
On fairy looms
Sailing over Sinbad’s Sea,
Magic unfailing
Guarding you and me
In our arabian nighty-night boat
Hold me tighty-tight boat
Dreaming Sweet Arabian Dreams!
