Lyrics by Xiomara Demeterio
Music by Blair Kabahar, Kerryl Demeterio, Jonathan Tejano, Xiomara Demeterio

Down the alley a spectre dwells
With a scimitar in his hands
The crescent moon, the light invades
The harem of dismay

Down the old bazaar of pots and dates and fruits and nuts
A wooven linen in the shade of bursting midday sun

Bellydancing in the air
In the streets with flames to flare
In a belljar cage of glass
Bellydancing on the grass

In the belljar cage of colored glass
Where in a dreamless slumber lay
This nabob in his countenance
Untied the yishmak from her olive face

Bellydancing in the air
In the streets with flames to flare
In a belljar cage of glass
Bellydancing on the grass
