Songtekst

Since the days of old
there's a story told 'bout Leila
the queen of Sheba
she was wise and kind
and the good in mind
of those who came to see her

You could hear a dance
we wore golden bells
and symbols on her fingers
and the night turned bright
with the silver light of her memory
that still lingers

Leila
was the queen of Sheba

When she ruled her land
she made one command
the rich should help the poor
in return for that
you'll get something back
witch pleases you much more

She was a famous queen
living in a dream of mystery and passion
and of thinks she said you would never get
get a wrong impression

Our story ends but she lives on
Leila the queen of Sheba
when you close your eyes and think of her
you all can be with her

Leila, Leila, Leila, La La La La Leila
Leila, Leila was the queen of Sheeba
