Bright the stars are shining, While my heart is pining,
For my love reclining, Nestl'ing in the sand.
Words of love endearing, Fall upon my hearing,
Naught of 'morrow fearing, In fair Persia land.
Persia, land of dreams,
Where the pale moon beams,
Through the palms it gleams,
Down upon the mystic streams,
Eyes that sparkle like dew,
Love light shining through,
Persia, where I found you,
Persia, where my dreams came true.
Crimson dawn is breaking, Caravan is waking,
And my leave I'm taking, Of fair Persia land.
Side by side we wander, Through the desert yonder,
While our love grows fonder, Strolling hand in hand.
