1. Dreaming of the Orient Fills my heart with discontent Longing for the days gone by When we were happy you and I. CHORUS: In Bangalore I want to be once more Where moonbeams grand form a path on the golden sand Tropic breeze and whisp'ring trees They seem to come back once more Won't you come back to Bangalore. 2. Mem'ries of you by my side Roaming 'cross the desert wide Incense perfume fills the air Oh how I wish that I were there.
