Underneath the crescent moon,
Where the desert Arabs croon;
In the night a mystic tune
Played a theme into my dream.
Palms beside the river Nile,
Camel bands and crocodile,
They made my love-song supreme.

CHORUS:
Dreamy Oriental melody,
Dreams of love you’re bringing tenderly;
To my yearning, burning heart you came,
All aflame, haunting me,
With a sentimental ecstasy,
That was like a croony symphony;
Oriental music so divine,
Now you’re mine, Dreamy Oriental melody.

‘Cross the sands a cavalcade,
To a dusky Arab maid
Came, with loving serenade,
To unfold a story old.
I could hear in whisper, low,
Strains of magic all aglow;
My dream is treasure to hold.
