IN THE SHADOW OF THE DESERT PALM

IN THE SHADOW OF THE DESERT PALM

Drifting on the great Sahara, In your dusty caravan;
You’re far away and today skies are gray,
But soon I’ll meet you where the palm trees sway;
The same old Gypsy trail will guide me to where love’s dream began.

CHORUS:
Where your caravan is resting,
Dream away, your dreams will soon come true;
Like the desert birds anesting,
I’ll build a tent for two, a tent that’s meant for you;
So wait for me, my little Cleopatra be,
Love me like she loved Marc Anthony;
Where your caravan is resting,
In the shadow of the desert palm.

Drifting on the great Sahara, do you ever think of me?
In all my dreams, dear, it seems you recall,
The happy days you long for most of all;
Just keep my heart with all its love dear, in sweetest memory.
