Mandolirium credits Nicholas Roubanis for the song saying their version was inspired by Harry Saroyan's exceptional and highly recommended rendition. My brother Russ sings the following version on the Mandolirium CD.

Misirlou

Desert shadows creep across purple sand
Travelers kneel in prayer by their caravan
They're following the light of an eastern star
I see my long lost love at Shalomar

Oh Misirlou
You're the moon and the sun, fairest one!

All temple bells
Are ringing across the land
Heaven will guide us
As we go hand and hand
We'll find our Kismet
Answering love's command.
