In the days of the Moorish reign,
A noble Prince, Ben Hud by name
Adored a Moorish Princess fair,
Of wond'rous fame and beauty rare,
No suitor seemed to please this maid
Who locked in her castle unafraid
Was safe till Ben Hud, brave and true,
Won her love as I'll relate to you;
He charmed her with a warrior's lay,
And stole the maiden's heart away.

Sultana a princess' throne
Awaits your answer, be mine alone
Sultana at love's command I came to woo
My love is true
Give me your hand
When maiden's [sic] fly Always pursue,
For love soon dies with none to woo you
Sultana, Sultana be mine.
