EGYPTIANA
Song

Back in Egypt land on desert sands
I lost my heart to you.
Where the temple stands and love commands
I promised I’d be true. I call you

CHORUS:
Egyptiana, My Egyptiana
Wish I knew the myst’ry in your eyes,
Like the sphinx I think you’re very wise.
I soon will be straying
Back where palms are swaying,
There’ll be style along the river Nile,
Where life’s worth while,
Egyptiana.

Where the Jasmines bloom in lovely June,
I’ll hold you in my arms,
In the evening gloom I’ll meet you soon
And banish all alarms. I want you

CHORUS:
Egyptiana, My Egyptiana
Wish I knew the myst’ry in your eyes,
Like the sphinx I think you’re very wise
I soon will be straying
Back where palms are swaying,
Cleopatra may have been a vamp
But you’re a champ,
Egyptiana.
