EGYPT

Back to Egypt-land my heart is wandering,
Deear old Nile I roam your banks once more;
Why I ever left you I am pondering
In my ev’ry dream along your shore, I picture:

CHORUS:
Starlight, bright upon the Nile;
Two eyes love-lit all the while;
Two lips coaxing with a smile,
My own Egypt.
Waters as they ripple by,
Seem to murmur with a sigh,
Humming just the same as I,
My own Egypt.

Do the same eyes watch for me in Egypt-land;
Are the same lips longing for a kiss;
Just the same as when we wandered hand in hand;
Where my heart knew nothing else but bliss, I wonder:

EGYPT
