Starmer

O’er burning sands I wandered ’till I found her
The girl they called Sahara Butterfly
Before I knew my arms were twined around her
A golden dream and then “good bye -“

CHORUS:
One perfect day, One wond’rous night
The tender light of desert stars agleaming found us dreaming
Then the parting hour
And all the silver of the stars above
Had melted into tears of love
And though I’ve journeyed far,
The evening star still brings a dream so fair about Sahara
Where we said “Good bye”
Good bye I sigh for my Sahara Butterfly

I meant to leave all dreams of love behind me
I wandered far just trying to forget
Why does each evening star that gleams remind me
Tho’ hope is gone I can’t forget –

SAHARA BUTTERFLY
