Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Desert shadows creep across purple sands.
Natives kneel in prayer by their caravans.
Verse 2
There, silhouetted under and eastern star,
I see my long lost blossom of shalimar
Verse 3
You, Misirlou, Are the moon and the sun, fairest one.
Verse 4
Old temple bells are calling across the sand.
We'll find our Kismet, answering love's command.
Verse 5
You, Misirlou, are a dream of delight in the night.
Verse 6
To an oasis, sprinkled by stars above,
Heaven will guide us, Allah will bless our love.
