Close of day finds me drifting far away,
Where an Oriental sky, Smiles on my dreams.
Love commands, Calling me to distant lands,
And I see my loved one's hands beckon it seems.
Love of mine, Do you ever long for me
While you drift where the moonlight beams.
Lady of the Nile, When shadows fall,
Lady of the Nile, Do you recall,
How you stole my heart,
With just a glance,
In your land of love and sweet romance,
Lady of my dreams that won't come true,
Still you seem to say, The long years through,
Maybe after while, Lady of the Nile,
You may learn to love me, too.
