Arabia Lyrics

Arabia
Docked in Tangiers port at night 
Heat drenched lights spread at a height
A young guide from the streets he'd fought 
Spoke seven tongues though never taught
 
Arabia
Smoked a hashish cigarette 
Chants float from a minaret
A Kasbah winds its labyrinth
The coastal palace of a prince
 
Arabia
 
They're falling lightly, the veils of Arabia 
The veils of Arabia
 
Arabia
Sabre dance in Istanbul 
Thieves around a pedestal
Harems held like nature's beasts
The desert boasts a genie's feats
 
Arabia
Teenage boys played on a beach 
Though no girls, they're out of reach
Heritage, their fathers land 
And law laid by their fathers' hand

Arabia
