    Lyrics

    Oh, sweet Dardanella
    I love your harem eyes
    I'm a lucky fellow to capture such a prize
    Oh, Allah knows my love for you
    And he tells you to be true, Dardanella
    Oh, hear my sigh, my Oriental
    Oh, sweet Dardanella, prepare the wedding wine
    There'll be one girl in my harem when you're mine
    We'll build a tent
    Just like the children of the Orient

    Oh, sweet Dardanella
    My star of love divine
    Down beside the Dardanella Bay
    Where Oriental breezes play
    There lives a lonesome maid Armenian
    By the Dardanelles with glowing eyes
    She looks across the seas and sighs
    And weaves her love spell so sirenian
    Soon I shall return to Turkestan
    I will ask for her heart and hand

    Oh, sweet Dardanella
    I love your harem eyes
    I'm a lucky fellow to capture such a prize
    Oh, Allah knows my love for you
    And he tells you to be true, Dardanella
    Oh, hear my sigh, my Oriental
    Oh, sweet Dardanella, prepare the wedding wine
    There'll be one girl in my harem when you're mine
    We'll build a tent
    Just like the children of the Orient
