Oriental Blues Lyrics Lyrics

TOM:
IF I ONLY HAD AN OIL LAMP LIKE ALADDIN,
WITH ITS MYSTIC POWER FROM ITS MYSTIC BOWER,
I'D CALL OLD GENII TO MY SIDE,
PRECIOUS STONES NOR RICHES, WOULD NOT BE MY WISHES,
BUT ON BENDED KNEE, I WOULD IMPLORE OLD GENII,
TO LET MY CONSCIENCE BE HIS GUIDE.
I'M SO LONELY AND THERE'S ONLY,
ONE PLACE THAT WILL EASE MY MIND,
IT'S THAT LAND WHERE GENTLE, ORIENTAL MAIDENS YOU WILL FIND,

CHORUS:
I'VE GOT THOSE ORIENTAL BLUES,
I'VE GOT THOSE ORIENTAL BLUES,
I LIKE TO TAKE A TRIP ACROSS THE CHINA SEA
TO OLD SHANGHAI,
SIP A CUP OF CHINA TEA WITH POOR BUTTERFLY.
THEN SPEND A DAY AT OLD BOMBAY.
WATCHING THOSE HINDOO MAIDENS SWAY,
WITH A NIGHT'S REPOSE,
WHERE GROWS, THE PERSIAN ROSE,
AT DAWN ON AN ARABIAN STEED,
AT AN ARABIAN SPEED,
LET ME WHIRL, WITH A BEDOUIN GIRL,
THEN IN CAIRO TOWN, I'D LIKE TO SETTLE DOWN,
OH, I'VE GOT THOSE MYSTERIOUS, DOGGONE DELIRIOUS,
ORIENTAL BLUES.
