Midnight at the Oasis

© By David Nichtern

Midnight at the oasis
Send your camel to bed
Shadows painting out faces
Traces of romance in our heads

Heavens holding at half moon
Shining just for us
Let's slip off into a sand dune
Real soon
Kick up a little dust

Come out, cactus is our friend
He'll point out the way
Come on, till the evening ends
Till the evening ends

You don't have to answer
There's no need to speak
I'll be your belly dancer, prancer
And you can be by sheik

I know your daddy's a Sultan
A nomad known to all
With fifty girls to attend him
They all send him
Jump at his beck and call

But you won't need no harem, honey
When I am by your side
And you won't need no camel, no,no
When I take you for a ride

Come on, cactus is our friend
He'll point out the way
Come on, till the evening ends
Till the evening ends
