(Extra lines missing!) 1- My desert is waiting; Dear, come there with me. I'm longing to teach you Love's sweet melody. I'll sing a dream-song to you, Painting a picture for two: Blue heaven and you and I, And sand kissing a moonlit sky. A desert breeze whisp'ring a lullaby, Only stars above you To see I love you. Oh, give me that night divine And let my arms in yours entwine. The desert song calling, Its voice enthralling Will make you mine. 2- (not performed in Mario's record) Cool zephyrs shall fan you In noon's fiery hour, While shady oases We'll seek for a bow'r. Allah sends gifts from above; Gives you my life and my love. Blue heaven and you and I, And sand kissing a moonlit sky. A desert breeze whisp'ring a lullaby, Only stars above you To see I love you. Oh, give me that night divine And let my arms in yours entwine. The desert song calling, Its voice enthralling Will make you mine. (Contributed by Ferda Dolunay - July 2005)
