VP_016644 Verse 1With an Eastern caravan, Rode an Arab man, And an arab maiden too, One who loved him true, None other knew for she, Was dressed just as a boy should be, And to the Eastern moon, At night this song she'd croon. Chorus 1Eastern moon Won't you fade away? Eastern moon Won't you please obey? Come back soon Some what later say, When I call you, Eastern moon Won't you leave the sky? While we spoon, My dear love and I, Won't you try to oblige me do? Verse 2Nestling near him like a bird, Love was all she heard, While the camels' tinkling bell, On the night air fell, And oft at mornings light, She still was whispering "Goodnight", For getful of the moon, Who heeded not her croon.
