As the moon shines down on Cairo
My heart is filled with sorrow
I will be thinking of you only
Arab man crossing sands to me.
Days go by and I am lonely
Waiting for my one and only
And in my mind I seem to see him
Coming back home to me.
Arab Man I'm dreaming of you
though you are many miles away
As shades of night are softly falling
Your caravan and you are calling
Arab Man the nights are lonely
But I know you'll come back to me
In the distant far off land
Dreaming of your caravan
Calling to me my Arab Man.
Dreaming of you on a June night
As I'm waiting in the moonlight
I wonder if you're very lonely
In that land of the sand for me
As the break of dawn in nearing
For your safety I am fearing
I seem to stand like one enchanted
Waiting for one I love.
