Over burning sand dunes and through merciless desert storms.
Like their forefathers who taught them how to face nature's fury,
The Bedouins with their goats and donkeys, horses and camels,
Push relentlessly ahead against all odds in their eternal search,
As sleep descends silently like a dense fog to envelop the whole city,
The old and young in homes and hotels relax in beds of warm luxury.
Suddenly, all around, screaming sirens spear the Arabian tranquillity,
Brutally shaken, men, women and children listen to impending danger,
