Desert Song, The (1926)
(m) Sigmund Romberg (w) Otto Harbach & Oscar Hammerstein II (I) Musical: The Desert Song by Robert Halliday
My desert is waiting, dear, come there with me.
I’m longing to teach you love’s sweet melody.
I’ll sing a dream song to you painting a picture for two:
Chorus: Blue heaven and you and I,
And sand kissing a moonlit sky.
A desert breeze whisp’ring a lullaby,
Only stars above you to see I love you.
Oh, give me that night divine,
And let my arms in yours entwine.
The desert song, calling, its voice enthralling,
Will make you mine.
