Complete befuddled mixture of Middle East setting on the Nile with Far East religious furnishings: temple gate, bronze bells, incense,”sacred” urns.

When the copper sun sinks into the Nile,
And the shadows fall then I smile,
For the day is done,
And my drams of you,
By the Temple Gate will come true,

CHORUS:
At dusk by the Temple Gate,
For you my love I’ll wait,
At eve when the bronze bells chime,
Then shall be our trysting time,
Within by the sacred urns,
We’ll pray while the incense burns,
My heart shall the off’ring be
By the Temple Gate
Say you’ll wait for me.

When the silver moon just begins to rise,
And the stars appear in the skies,
Then my footsteps lead
To the Temple Gate,
For you anxiously Love I wait,
