Down in Araby Someone waits for me.
O'er the desert sand She watches each caravan.
Ev'ry night she cries, looks up to the skies,
Sees a star on high, Then softly you'll hear her sigh:
My Arabian star,
You'll see its glow and you will know I love you
Shine on Arabian star
For while you're gleaming I'm dreaming of someone
For ev'ry night I see you twinkle way up above,
Ev'ry silv'ry ray is just a message of love
When you see my Arabian star,
You'll know I love you dear, where'er you are.
In my memory, You are still with me,
Wand'ring hand in hand, Over burning sand.
How I long to be Back in Araby,
Tho' you're far away, I seem to hear you say:
