LAND OF THE PHARAOHS
Lyrics by Ned Washington - Music by Dimitri Tiomkin
One day, long ago, on a faraway shore,
Sweethearts just like us lived and loved once before.
By the pyramids, there were moments like this -
Lovers warmed their lips with the fire of a kiss.
Come, love, to the Land of Pharaohs -
Let's recapture all the rapture
That the ancients have known.
So, come, love where the wide world narrows
To a mystic, fatalistic little world of our own.
Take my trembling hand -
Take me over the sea,
To that far-off land.
Live and love there with me.
With me, with me!
