In the dim moonlight

Below the heaven’s eyes

She danced and danced

On the streets that lay by

Trying to change her sad destiny

Into the fairy clouds of beauty.

Β 

In the rain, when the thunder cried

She went on with her appealing glide

Her tattered dress had a distinct glow

As though blooming on the cactus were a tender rose

Trying to change her sad destiny

Into the fairy clouds of beauty.

Β 

The reign of sorrow stopped at last

A charming gentleman turned out to be her Romeo

Her smile shined in her dancing amber eyes

The gray-eyed man had picked the rose

Helping her change her sad destiny

Into the fairy clouds of beauty.
