MY LADY OF THE NILE
In old Egypt where the pale moon glows,
And the sapphire Nile so gently flows,
And the balmy breeze through the palm tree blows;
That is Paradise to me.
In the shade of the pyramids so grand;
In that olden, golden Pharaoh Land;
It was there I lost my heart and hand,
And asked her My Queen to be.
Oh my lady of the
Nile, Won’t you linger here awhile,
I have loved you so in history
you have solved my heart’s own mystery
through the veil of years it seems
you have haunted all my dreams
A world of love I’d return to you,
I’ve yearned for you, I’ve burned for you,
Your Anthony I want to be
My lady of the Nile.
