Hank Snow – My Arabian Baby lyrics

Well, her eyes they sparkle
Like the sandy dunes
And her voice it rings
Like all the latest tunes.

And when she speaks my name
Her eyes fairly light up and shine
She's my Arabian baby
And maybe she'll soon be mine.

I've traveled this whole world over
And never have I seen
Such eyes, such lips, such lucious charms
On such a lovely queen.

So with an eye to the future
I will make my plans
I'm a-gonna get a ring
On a lilly white hand.

And I'll count all the pleasures
Yhat I know will soon be mine
And my Arabian baby and me
Are gonna live just fine.

--- Instrumental ---

She puts all the princesses
In the shade
With her lips of fire
And her eyes of jade.

And her charms as warm
As the tingle of cherry wine
She's my Arabian baby
And maybe she'll soon be mine.

Well, I've got the license
And the preacher man
She's got the frills
I'm gonna bring her a band.

And everybody will dance
Till the sun begins to shine
On the day that I make
My Arabian baby all mine...
