Testo della canzone Araby 1915 di Irving Berlin
Album: Miscellaneous
1st verse:] Tonight I’m dreaming of Araby
That’s where my dreams seem to carry me
Where ev’rything is Oriental
And ev’ryone is sentimental
There in the shade of the shelt’ring palms
I met a maiden fair
I long to hold her gently in my arms
Oh, how I wish I was there

[chorus:] Araby
When shades of night appear
I seem to hear you calling

Araby
You seem to beckon and I reckon
I’ll be hurrying back again

Seems to me
A maiden’s face appears
I see her tears are falling
Falling because I left her there

That’s why I long to be
Where all those happy faces
Wait for me
Beside the fair oasis

Soon, you’ll see
Within a caravan
An Arab man will take me
Over the desert back to Araby

[2nd verse:] Someday you’ll find me in Araby
Where someone’s waiting to marry me
I can’t forget the day we parted
She said I left her broken hearted
I helped her on to a camel’s back
Before she rode away
She made me promise that I would come back
I’ll keep my promise someday
