Drift o’er the sunkiss’d desert,
Stop where the old Nile flows,
There’s where my heart is roaming,
There’s where I left my rose.
Pretty as Cleopatra,
Mild as the summer’s breeze,
Egypt I dwell in your land,
Tho’ far across the seas.

CHORUS:
Egypt Land, And my River Nile,
Life with you, Made living well worth while,
Egypt Land, Keep the rose I left there faithful,
And I’ll be true to you,
My Egypt Land.

To pyramids and sand dunes,
Wonders of puny man,
Nightly with joy I wander
In a dreamy caravan.
Seated high on my Camel,
Free as the very air,
But I wake from my dreaming,
And sigh that I’m not there.
