Let’s Go
To visit the pyramids
Watch the camels roaming in the sand
The nomads are excellent guides
Knowing every interesting spot in sight

Let’s go
And cross the border
To meet our guide in Tunisia
Friendly folks they are
Though they hassle you here
Wanting to sell you a souvenir

Let’s go
Only a few miles across the sea
Alladin and his magic lamp we leave behind

Let’s go
To Sicily across the Mediterranean Sea
The smoking Mt. Aetna guides the way

Let’s go
And see if we can find what we have in
North Africa left behind
And stop at a Sicilian Trattoria we have time
To revive with a glass of local wine

Let’s go
And have a waiter wearing a white apron
Offer something special and delicate

Let’s go
Up to the Aetna crater be amazed to see a ski lift
Italians love life from beaches to skiing down
The snow covered crater slopes hoping not to fall down

Let’s go
To see the world where adventures loom
Every country is special
And the sound of their language
Wakes you up to reality

Have you packed your bag?
Let’s go !!!!!!!!!
