Long ago Where the Nile is flowing dreamily,
To and fro graceful palm trees slowly sway'd
Long ago like a vision fair you came to me
You brought sweet love dreams
I have learn'd to know could never be.
Now dear I dream alone Of all the joys we have known.
Moonlight on the Nile recalls the smile you gave me
Moonlight on the Nile brings back the days that used to be, and dearie
All alone I stray along the way that once we knew
Moonlight on the Nile will always bring me memories of you.
In my dreams I imagine you've come back to me
And it seems that I love you even more
There you stand and I dream my dream so happily
My mem'ries wander To our love days and I seem to be
Strolling with you once more There on that moonlit shore
