My love, in the soft Arabian night,
I behold a vision anew,
You, heavenly you.
My love, dawn and I must follow the sun,
Searching ev'rywhere for my one.
True, wonderful you:
Since time began, Our love was intended,
Fate has entwined your heart with mine and mine alone.
Since time began, A thousand nights have blended
Into the one night you shall make divine, my own.
Just like the thief of Bagdad I steal thru' the dark to you and romance,
Under the magic spell of a smile you have won my heart with a glance.
And now you're mine, Our search for love is ended,
That was my plan since time began.
