Far away in Persia
The golden sun
Its course has run
And the day is done
Ev’ning falls in Persia.
A maiden dreams
While the mellow moon gleams

CHORUS:
The Persian moon is softly shining
In the velvet bowl of night
Distant temple bells are chiming
Come love our troth we’ll plight, my heart’s delight
For you I’m beseeching Allah
Grant my fervent pray’r he’ll hear
You’re my paradise
You I idolize,
While the Persian moon is shining, dear.

She awaits my coming
This flower rare,
Beyond compare
So she too must care
Love songs she is humming
A honey-moon
Will be coming dear soon
