QUEEN OF EGYPT
Song

Another variation on the Antony and Cleopatra theme.

In Egypt where the palm trees sway,
There lived a famous queen, they say,
Till a caravan it crossed the desert sand
and carried her away;
For a Roman bold
This song of love to her he told:

CHORUS:
Queen of Egypt, hear my plea,
Tho’ you are Queen of Egypt
My heart’s afire,
burning with love’s desire
My arms just yearn to hold you
close while we dream
The moon upon the Nile is beaming,
so come my Queen of Egypt,
Your heart belongs to me!

But soon this Roman brave and bold,
Discovered that her heart was cold.
For there came a day she wandered far away
and left him, so we’re told;
All alone he sighed
And to his faithless one he cried:

Egypt
