In Sultana’s eyes the lovelight lies,Full of mystic charms;While the music plays, Sultana swaysIn the Sultan’s arms.While the incense burning sets the flame of love aglow,He sings to Sultana soft and low.CHORUS:Mistress of my harem, Sultana mine,Allah gave you kisses that are divine;Pretty Arab maid, oriental,I’m sentimental,My heart is thine, I love you only,Coming from the desert, my caravanBrings the happy wedding feast;Soon, my maid divine,we’ll drink the wineThat makes you mine,Oh! my lovely maiden, Sultana, Queen of the East.Far across the sand to Bagdad grandYou and I will fly;To its mystic shrines of ancient times’Neath Arabian skies.There I’ll sip the honey from your lips of ruby hue,There we’ll find a paradise for two.
