The Sheik Of Araby    (1921)

Over the desert wild and free
Rides the bold Sheik of Araby
His Arab band at his command
Follows his love's caravan
Under the shadow of the palms
He sings to call her to his arms

I'm the Sheik of Araby,
Your love belongs to me.
At night when you're asleep,
Into your tent I'll creep.
The stars that shine above
Will light our way to love.
You'll rule this land with me,
The Sheik of Araby.

While the stars are fading in the dawn
Over the desert they'll be gone
His captured bride close by his side
Swift as the wind they will ride
Proudly he scorns her smile or tear
Soon he will conquer love by fear.

I'm the Sheik of Araby,
Your love belongs to me.
At night when you're asleep,
Into your tent I'll creep.
The stars that shine above
Will light our way to love.
You'll rule this land with me,
The Sheik of Araby.

I'm the Sheik of Araby,

I'm the Sheik of Araby.
