OASIS

OASIS
A Desert Romance
F. Henri Klickmann
Harold G. Frost
Frank K. Root & Co.
“Oasis” apparently is the lover’s name (Cf. “Egypt”), perhaps an example of “name recognition” to an American audience that wouldn’t know authentic Arabic names for women.

Beneath the spreading palms I found my Desert Love,
Around my heart a magic spell is love she threw;
And as my caravan departed
she was broken-hearted,
Although she knew that I’d be true.
Desert Flower, let me kiss your tears away,
I’ll come back to you some day.

CHORUS:
Oasis, by the desert breezes kiss’d,
It is you alone I miss,
I’ll dream of you (Far away while I stray till the day)
Across the sand, I will bring my caravan,
Back to where our love began,
Little Oasis.

As through the palms the soft winds sigh, all through the night
A cry is carried far away to other lands;
It echoes, while her tears are falling,
till she hears him calling,
From far across the deseret sands.
Desert Flower, let me kiss your tears away,
I’ll come back to you some day.
