From the Howard Hawks’ movie “Land of the Pharaohs” written by Willliam Faulkner et al. and starring Joan Collins and Jack Hawkins.

One day long ago
On a far-away shore
Sweethearts just like us
Lived and loved once before,
By the pyramids
There were moments like this,
Lovers warmed their lips with the fire of a kiss,

CHORUS:
Come, love, to the LAND OF THE PHARAOHS
Let’s recapture all the rapture
That the ancients have known,
So come, love, where the wide world narrows
To a mystic, fatalistic little world of our own.
Take my trembling hand,
Take me over the sea
To that far-off land,
Live and love there with me,
With me, with me.
