“Sinbad”
Edwards

Cross the desert plains a trav’ler worn
Came fatigued and hungry and forlorn,
He cursed the world with his mournful sighs,
He raised his eyes and to his surprise,
He saw a city so grandly rising;
And he cried out:

CHORUS:
Bagdad, you rise through,
Bagdad, through skies of blue,
And I see in you wondrous splendors,
Bagdad, imposing, Bagdad reposing,
Bagdad disclosing, glories rare,
Gilded your towers,
Builded by powers
Of the ancient ages,
I see your mosques and temples that rise above,
They call to me and my lonesome heart fills with love,
Bagdad, I’m so glad when I’m with you.
