TAKE ME BACK TO CAIRO
Music & Lyrics by
Karim Shukry

Take me back to Cairo
Beside the river Nile
My heart belongs to Cairo, Oh Cairo
Where I have found my smile

Take me back to Cairo
Beneath the silver moon
I left my heart in Cairo, Oh Cairo
The day I heard this tune

I have been yearning to go back and see my darling
And still remember the big gardens in the sun
How can I stay away so long, my heart is burning
Please take me back I want to be near my dear one

Take me back to Cairo
I've been away so long
I must return to Cairo, Oh Cairo
Again to hear that song

There is a saying that came out from the Sahara
That if you ever taste the water of the Nile
You will return again I heard it from Samara
Although you may be far away many a mile

Take me back to Cairo
Beneath the silver moon
I left my heart in Cairo, Oh Cairo
The day I heard this tune

Eternal sunshine winter, summer any season
Go there and hear the Sphinx he's talking every night
And oriental tunes they play and for a reason
They must be celebrating someone's wedding night

Take me back to Cairo
I'm sad and never smile
I must go back to Cairo, Oh Cairo
Just once again
to see-ee-ee the Nile

Take oh take me,
Take oh take me,
Take oh take me back
To Cairo
