The Band's Visit the Musical - Omar Sharif Lyrics

"Omar Sharif" is a song performed by Katrina Lenk (Dina) from The Band's Visit the musical.

[DINA]
Umm Kulthum and Omar Sharif
came floating on the jasmine wind
from the west, from the south
honey in my ears
spice in my mouth.
Dark and thrilling,
strange and sweet
Cleopatra and the handsome thief
and they floated in on a jasmine wind
Umm Kulthum and Omar Sharif
and they floated in on a jasmine wind
Umm Kulthum and Omar Sharif

Friday evening, Omar Sharif,
in black and white and blurry through tears.
My mother and I would sit there in a trace
he was cool to the marrow, the pharaoh of romance

Sunday morning,
Umm Kulthum
her voice would fill our living room.
The ship from Egypt always came
sailing in on radio waves

And the jasmine wind, deep perfume
Umm Kulthum
And the living room becomes a garden,
and the TV set becomes a fountain,
and the music flows in the garden
and everything grows

Umm Kulthum and Omar Sharif
came floating on a lemon leaf
flying in on a jasmine wind
Umm Kulthum and Omar Sharif
and we dance with them on a jasmine scented wind,
Umm Kulthum and Omar Sharif.
