When It's Sunset On The Nile

(Ray Ellison / Ted Renard)


New Mayfair Dance Orchestra

When It's Sunset On The Nile
Let me drift with you awhile
Where the desert stars are gleaming
And the pyramids lie dreaming

Soon I'll cross the burning sand
Just to kiss you as you smile
And we'll find true love together
When It's Sunset On The Nile
