​1001 Nights

This song is by Cloven Hoof and appears on the album A Sultan's Ransom (1989).

Salam o exalted one,
Come share a vision with me.
Back in time,
For it is written,
So it came to pass.
So shall it be

Let the centuries unfold,
Like the dance of the seven veils.
Before your very eyes

In a 1001,
1001 nights of Arabia
In a 1001,
1001 nights of Arabia
A Sultan's delight,
Gemstones bright
On a flight to Arabia
In a 1001,
1001 nights of Arabia

Told by queen Scheherazade,
Shackled and sold,
Into slavery
To stay alive,
By royal decree
That another day of life,
Might go free

Bewitching with tales,
When all else fails,
To curb the wrath of the king

In a 1001,
1001 nights of Arabia
In a 1001,
1001 nights of Arabia
A Sultan's delight,
Gemstones bright
On a flight to Arabia
In a 1001,
1001 nights of Arabia

In a Persian market place,
Slave girls sell their bodies for a price
In the city of sin,
That will pacify,
Your every vice

Salam o exalted one,
Now you've shared a vision with me
Precious sights beyond compare,
Magic carpets ride the air
The back of a genie will take you there,
On endless fights
On a 1001 nights of Arabia.
