In dreamy Persian gardens far across the sea,
There the rose is yielding sweetest fragrancy,
O land with sunshine radiant!
Land of birds and flow'rs!
Gardens rare are blooming there
full of lovers' bow'rs.
My beautiful Persian Queen,
O love of my heart Shireen,
As pure as stars above I give you all my love,
O light of my life Shireen,
O come to my arms, my Queen,
I'll love thee true for aye,
My Persian Queen.
My lovely Persian maiden, sing thy songs to me,
Thou art far the fairest maid of all to me,
Thy gardens bloom with roses,
moonlight ever glows,
Nightingales are singing there,
singing to the rose.
