Moonlight on the Nile is a gushing sentimental period parlour song. Just get the 1st verse and chorus:

Long ago where the Nile is flowing dreamily to and fro graceful palm trees slowly swayed.
Long ago like a vision fair you came to me.
You brought sweet love dreams I have learn'd to know could never be.
Now dear I dream alone of all the joys we've known.

Moonlight on the Nile recalls the smile you gave to me.
Moonlight on the Nile brings back the days that used to be and dearie.
All alone I stray along the way that once we knew.
Moonlight on the Nile will always bring me memories of you.

This recorder adaptation, being an all Tenor/Bass affair, benefits greatly from having a singer.
Moonlight on the Nile was published by Jerome H. Remick & Co., New York & Detroit, USA.
A tempo of 180 crotchets/min. is suggested.
