There’s a sky in the east over pyramids at Giza
Where there once lived a girl, she ruled the world
Then down the Nile he came with a smile

He was the king, she was the queen
Under the moonlight your eyes won’t believe
What your mind can’t conceive

Nights over Egypt, nights over Egypt
Nights over Egypt, incense and myrrh
And girls that swirl to the music
Nights over Egypt

Women fellahin
Wear veils to been seen by no one
Take a caravan across the Sudan
Saharan facade is just a mirage

Oasis in the sand where life once began
Under the moonlight your eyes won't believe
What your mind can't conceive

Nights over Egypt, nights over Egypt
Nights over Egypt, incense and myrrh
And girls that swirl to the music
Nights over Egypt

Nights, nights, nights over Egypt
Nights, nights, nights over Egypt

Oasis in the sand where life once began
Your eyes won't believe
What your mind can't conceive, oh yeah

Where there once lived a girl and she ruled the water
Then down the Nile he came with a smile
Take a caravan across the desert sand
He was the king and she was the queen

Nights, nights, nights over Egypt
Nights, nights, nights over Egypt
Nights, nights, nights over Egypt
Nights, nights
