lyrics

Mohinder and the Maharani set out early one morn.
Mohinder and the Maharani in the light of the dawn,
In the light of the dawn, by the gates of Pushkar town,
In the light of the dawn, by the gates of Pushkar town.

Mohinder and the Maharani in their gold and silver rings,
Surrender to the camel’s rocking, and the bells, they sweetly sing.
Oh the camels dance o’er the gently shifting sands.
Oh the camels dance o’er the gently shifting sands.

Mohinder and the Maharani make camp by dinner time.
Bless the fire and the hot chapati after the long day’s drive.
Over the dunes comes the goatherd’s tune.
And round the campfire dance, the Maharani hands.

Mohinder and the Maharani lay down beneath the sky.
The full moon and stars are shining. Oh the night it is so bright.
The night is so bright, sleep won’t come tonight.
The moon, so full, shines into the lovers’ eyes.

Mohinder and the Maharani spent a fortnight crossing land,
bells ringing, camels dancing, nights curled up on the sand.
When the fortress at Jaisalmer on the horizon appears
The freedom of the desert is all the more dear.
