Boston Public Library has copy #177 (of 250 in the first edition) autographed by the composer and lyricist.

When young men in Morocco
Think they’d like to woo,
They ask Allah, Allah,
He tells each lover by the Koran what to do,
does Allah
Then each Moorish sheik
To each maiden meek
Breathes of love into her ear
And this is what you hear:

CHORUS:
Fairest lady of Morocco
Shining like a star
You’re a jewel from the heavens,
Rare as jewels are;
Ride with me upon the desert
Grant to me this boon:
For there’s our chance
For real romance
Underneath the Moorish moon.
