Midnight at the Oasis

by Kay~Kacey on 9/6/2010

Well, really sunset at the Love Nest

(the clouds in this sunset are so cool!)

Anyway, while I was processing this photo, I could NOT get the song Midnight at the Oasis out of my head! Do you remember that one? Heck I had to google it to find out who even sang it. Maria Muldaur in case you were wondering. Huh? Yes, me too. 1974. Hit 6 on the billboards. Not sure I ever heard another of her songs. Anyway…you will not be able to get this song out of your head now. You’re welcome! :crazy:

Midnight at the oasis
Send your camel to bed
Shadows paintin’ our faces
Traces of romance in our heads
Heaven’s holdin’ a half-moon
Shinin’ just for us
Let’s slip off to a sand dune, real soon
And kick up a little dust
Come on, Cactus is our friend
He’ll point out the way
Come on, till the evenin’ ends
Till the evenin’ ends
You don’t have to answer
There’s no need to speak
I’ll be your belly dancer, prancer
And you can be my sheik
—— guitar solo ——
I know your Daddy’s a sultan
A nomad known to all
With fifty girls to attend him, they all send him
Jump at his beck and call
But you won’t need no harem, honey
When I’m by your side
And you won’t need no camel, no no
When I take you for a ride
Come on, Cactus is our friend
He’ll point out the way
Come on, till the evenin’ ends
Till the evenin’ ends
Midnight at the oasis
Send your camel to bed
Got shadows paintin’ our faces
And traces of romance in our heads

Yes, you are welcome. That song will now be stuck in your head too!

I wanted to say Diana Muldaur until I remembered she was an actress. *g*

I’m pretty sure Maria was a one hit wonder. :loser: LOL!

That came out the year I graduated high school. And I refuse to let this song get stuck in my head.

Refuse, I tell you . . .
