One Way Ticket To Cairo

One Way Ticket To Cairo

One Way Ticket To Cairo
Far off in the land of the sun and thousand minarets
Deep in the city full of sandy streets and cigarettes
There waits a man for the woman he has never met
Dreaming of love he puts his wish out on the internet
.
There lives a girl in the land of opportunity
She longs for a man who is warm and walks with dignity
Turning to the East with the help of synchronicity
He catches her eye and with Hello she seals their destiny

She’s got a one way, one way ticket to Cairo
She’s got a one way, one way ticket to love   
.
Weeks turn to months and the handsome Arab won her heart
They fell in love, no longer could they be apart
Little did they know how Destiny would make its play
When she bought her ticket to love upon that fateful day
.
She’s got a one way, one way ticket to Cairo
She’s got a one way, one way ticket to love
.
Down by the Nile in Palace Hotel Zamelek
They had their first kiss, a night they never would forget
Then hand in hand, through Cairo streets the lovers roamed
Dreaming of their life, two loving hearts had found a home
.
She’s got a one way, one way ticket to Cairo
She’s got a one way, one way ticket to love
She’s got a one way, one way ticket to Cairo
She’s got a one way, one way ticket to love
