Midnight at the oasis -
Send your camel to bed
Shadows paintin' our faces,
Traces of romance in our heads.

Heaven's holdin' a half-moon
Shinin' just for us;
Let's slip off to a sand dune, real soon
And kick up a little dust.

Come on, Cactus is our friend;
He'll point us out the way.
Come on, till the evenin' ends,
Till the evenin' ends.

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

(Repeat Refrain)

Midnight at the oasis -
Send your camel to bed;
Got shadows paintin' our faces,
And traces of romance in our heads.
