Looking at the world thru the sunset in your eyes,
Traveling the train thru clear Moroccan skies,
Ducks and pigs and chickens call,
Animal carpet wall to wall,
American ladies five feet tall in blue.

Sweeping cobwebs from the edges of my mind,
Had to get away to seek what we could find.
Hope the days that lie ahead
Bring us back to where they’ve led,
Listen not to what’s been said to you.

Chorus:

Wouldn’t you know we’re riding
On the Marrakesh Express!
Wouldn’t you know we’re riding
On the Marrakesh expressly,
Taking me to Marrakesh!
All on board the train! All on board the train!
I’ve been saving all my money just to take you there.
I smell the garden in your hair,

Take the train from Casablanca, going south,
Blowing smoke rings from the corners of my mouth,
Colored cottons hang in the air,
Charming cobras in the square,
Striped jelabas we can wear at home.
