Cairo

In a city full of stories by the mighty river Nile
There are sights to make you marvel and some more to make you smile
On the sunbaked plain of Giza are the pyramids of fame
And around each hidden corner there are wonders I can’t name
You won’t meet more friendly people (when they are behind the wheel)
In a city full of stories with a half forgotten feel

In this country full of stories there are places I must go
To see man’s first ancient wonders and the truths he didn’t know
And it has its modern wonders and its modern eyesores too
In the wake of revolution all ideas seem fresh and new
And I’ll take away the mem’ries of the people that we met
But this country full of stories has some traffic to forget!
