At * go to Coda on repeat.

Midnight at the Oasis,
Send your camel to bed,
Shadows paintin’ our faces,
Traces of romance in our heads,
Heaven’s holdin’ a half-moon,
shinin’ just for us,
Let’s slip off to a sand dune, real soon,
and kick up a little dust.
Come on, cactus is our friend,
He’ll point out the way,
Come on, ’til the evenin’ ends,
’til the evening ends,*
You don’t have to answer,
There’s no need to speak,
I’ll be your belly dancer, prancer,
and you can be my sheik.
I know your daddy’s a sultan,
a nomad known to all,
With fifty girls to attend him,
They all send him and jump at his beck and call.
But you won’t need no harem, honey,
when I’m by your side,
And you won’t need no camel, no, no,
when I take you for a ride.

*CODA:
Midnight at the Oasis,
Send your camel to bed,
Got shadows paintin’ our faces,
And traces of romance in our heads.
Oh, come on.
