EGYPTLAND (Words by Bartley Costello / Music by James W. Casey, 1919) Drift o'ver the sun kissed desert, stop where the old Nile flows, there's where my heart is roaming, There's where I left my rose, pretty as Cleopatra, mild as the summer breeze, Egypt I dwell in your land, tho' far across the seas. To pyramids and sand dunes, wonders of puny man, nightly with joy I wander, in a dream caravan. Seated high on my camel, free as the very air, but I wake from dreaming, and sigh that I'm not there. Egypt land, land of my river Nile, life with you, made living well worth while; Egypt land, keep the rose I left there faithful and I'll be true, to you my Egypt land.
