"Sombrero Land" lyrics - IRVING BERLIN

"Sombrero Land"
(Goetz, Berlin and Snyder)

[1st verse:]
Starlight a-twinkling, mandolin tinkling sweet serenade
'Mid convent bells, of love sweetly tells a Mexican maid
Longing to go to, longing to know true love's parade
As he sings to eyes that dim fairest golden skies

Sombrero Land
Fair tropic strand
Beside the Rio Grande
With love my heart command
Eyes understand
What hearts demand
Come, we'll delight some, quite some
Bright Sombrero Land

[2nd verse:]
Silently hiding, silently sliding down to his arms
Two lips caress, with kisses impress her heart in their charms
Thro' gardens groping, they go eloping, silently flee
As once more to her, he tenderly hums his plea
