TRIPOLI
TRIPOLI
On The Shores Of Tripoli
Song

“Vesper bells” ringing and “Choir voices singing” are hardly the expected background one would expect to find in Tripoli.

Open the portals of memory
Let the old honeymoon glow,
Take me again to old Tripoli,
Bring back the sweet long ago.

CHORUS:
Floating on the Bay at Tripoli,
Sweethearts you and I
Just a little paradise for two,
‘Neath a starlit sky.

Vesper bells were a-ringing,
Choir voices singing;
While the moon above
just spoke of love,
On the shores of Tripoli,
Just like a beautiful melody
Haunting me all the day through,
So I am haunted by Tripoli,
When I am dreaming of you.
