In a fair Egyptian garden,
Where pretty lotus lillies grow,
That's where my tho'ts tonight are going,
To burning desert sands aglow,
And Egypt's pride will soon be knowing,
With all my heart I love her so.
Garden of Allah, Under Egyptian skies, Dreamy Egyptian eyes,
Watching and waiting,
Tiny Egyptian voice, Calling her only choice,
To come and meet her by the river shore,
Hold her in my arms once more,
Ocean liner heading, Soon there'll be a wedding,
No more tears will she be shedding,
Caravan waiting, waiting to carry me, Happy my heart will be,
Love will find a paradise for a honeymoon,
Desert flower just in bloom,
Will be queen of my heart soon,
In the Garden of Allah far away.
In the shadows of the pyramids,
Where she first stole my heart away,
soon to a temple we'll be going,
To keep the vow we made one day,
And to all Egypt we'll be showing,
that love has carried me away.
