I Wish I was a Sultan

I Wish I was a Sultan

She’s like a bottle of Egyptian wine
Long and dark and tall
I’m about to die of thirst
Why won’t she let me drink at all

I’m just a camel out in the desert
In her caravan
I can see shimmering pools
But I’m stuck out here on dry land

Chorus:
I wish I was a Sultan
I wish I was a King
I’d make this town my country
And I’d make her my Queen

She’s always out there on the horizon
Just like some mirage
Every time I get to her
She’s farther away than she was

Her image floats around inside my head
What a sight to see
She’s one sultry oasis
And she’s so good at tempting me

Bridge:
Star light, star bright
I feel like an Arabian tonight
Wish I may, wish I might
Be her Sultan tonight

Chorus:
I wish I was a Sultan
I wish I was a King
I’d make this town my country
And I’d make her my Queen
