MY CAIRO MAID

MY CAIRO MAID
Song
G. Foster and Chris Schonberg
Bud De Sylva
W. A. Quincke & Co., Los Angleles, Cal.
The first verse has a misprint; “Chiro” maid.

Dreaming, I am always dreaming
When the stars are gleaming,
Of my Cairo maid.
I believe she wants me,
For her mem’ry haunts me,
I sit and pine till skies are graying, saying,

CHORUS:
I know a maid in Cairo,
In dreamy Cairo, beside the Nile.
I know she’s yearning,
Her heart is burning,
For my returning,
So for a while
I’ll travel upon my camel
O’er scorching gravel unto my shrine,
Which means, that I’ll go to dreamy Cairo
And make this Cairo maiden mine.

Smiling, I can see her smiling,
In her way beguiling,
As the shadows fall.
For the moon above her
Tells her that I love her,
And will return o’er desert swinging, singing,

MY CAIRO MAID
