Oh, that beautiful face.
Your eyes are shining,
My heart is pining,
I long for you each day.
Thru the night it does seem
You alone are my dream,
If you were only here, dear.
My cares are gone when you’re near.

CHORUS:
Neath desert skies
A soft breeze sighs,
And sand dunes rise,
Where I first met you.
The stars by night,
The moon so bright,
That send their light,
Know I am true.
I want to be,
Oh, can’t you see,
I long to be with you my dearie,
Your smile so bright,
Is the only light of my life,
My dearie,
So cheerie,
My Persian Rose.

If it only were you
If it only were true,
When you are crying,
There’s no denying.
I wish that you were mine.
If I only could guess,
Of you’d only say yes,
You’re like an angel with wings,
That is the reason I sing.
