Lyrics

[Now we'd like to do a brand new one for you
It's called "Cleopatra"]

Abdul's not seen Cleopatra
It's been almost now a year
How I wonder where she's at-ra
And I wish the old girl were here
Abdul yearns for Cleopatra Abdul wants her or wants none
Abdul loves Cleopatra, she's still the one

Abdul feels his body glow
??? Feel my heart pound all day
Cause every camel around here knows
Abdul's going get his way
Abdul yearns for Cleopatra Abdul wants her or wants none
Abdul loves Cleopatra, she's still the one

Let's go

All right

Abdul loves Cleopatra
I'm just grateful that I know the old girl
Well even though I wonder where she's at-ra
As I wander through the world
Abdul yearns for Cleopatra, Abdul wants her or wants none
Abdul loves Cleopatra, she's still the one

Cleopatra, take my patience and test it
Cleopatra, take my time as ye may
My time has been well-spent,
I done cleaned up my tent
You'll like it when you see it someday

I will wait for Cleopatra
For I know my time must come,
And I'll be ready for wherever she's at-ra,
Cause I'll be wiser and not so dumb
And Abdul yearns for Cleopatra in the early morning??? sun
Abdul loves Cleopatra, she's still the one

I am patient like I oughta
For I know I've done my part
I've sown the seeds and I gotta
Wait for time to change their heart
Abdul yearns for Cleopatra Abdul wants her or wants none
Abdul loves Cleopatra, she's still the one

[??? This is one of those true songs, this song is no joke you know,
It sounds funny but when I wrote it I wrote it to be funny cause I was miserable you know,
I waited you see I knew this girl, she played Cleopatra in our high school play,
And when she told me that I started to see a resemblance
Well Jonathan, how would you know?
What do you mean 'resemblance'?
You mean were you back there in the ancient antiquity days?
I don't know but I seem to remember this pyramid man Curly from back then,
Well we get that Egyptian vibe,
I just say Curly let's play something Egyptian,
Pick it up a little,
And I don't know why but when I tell him something like that,
He may not be Egyptian but he makes me think about it ???
She still the one and she's worth it
Jonathan Jonathan was she worth the wait?
Yes she was worth the wait,
How ya doing?
I'm doing good, Jonathan how ya doing?
I'm doing fine, all right, let's rock it boys]

[I wanna say something else
How many of you guys have ever waited for a girl
And all your friends told you you were nuts?
Well I'm living proof that you're probably not nuts
If she's really the one
My friends would say
Jonathan, we know you like this girl
But why don't you find someone else?
There's lots of girls you know
And aren't you lonely?
Aren't you lonely Jonathan?
I'd say wait a minute

It's not even respectful
For people to ???
A girl when
Deep down in my heart
I gotta know that there's someone else
Who ???

That's right
And I want
Jonathan, but she's being so mean
You should be with a girl who'll treat you like a queen
I said, wait a minute
Like a king
In fact some of these places probably meant that
Jonathan, you should be treated like a king
Well I said
It's not her fault
Don't you get it
She's scared
But she's so mean to ya
She won't talk to ya
I said look you guys
She could help it
And anyway it doesn't matter because don't you understand that she
I know
?? Wavered
Jonathan, what are you talking about ??? for
???
That just means you don't care that much about a person
???
With me ???
My friend Andy ???
Jonathan ???
I said, that's right ???
Cause ???
And I ???
I said look
I'm just sorry I brought the whole thing up to ya

Abdul yearns for Cleopatra in the blazing desert sun

You know, I miss my Cleopatra
But I'm grateful to know the old girl
But I do I wonder where she's at-ra
As I wander through this world
And Abdul yearns for Cleopatra, Abdul takes her or takes none (that's right, no one)
Abdul wants Cleopatra, she's still the one

Ok guitar now

You know I will wait for Cleopatra
But I know my time will come,
And I'll be ready for wherever she'll be at-ra,
I'll be so strong then and not so dumb
And Abdul yearns for Cleopatra I gonna take her or take none
(But what you say, he says)
Abdul wants Cleopatra, she's still the one
I want my little Cleopatra, she's still the one
I want my Cleopatra, she's still the one
I want my Cleopatra, she's still the one (Still the one)

Abdul
[It's been a long time]
Abdul has not seen his Cleopatra
It's been over now a year
How I wonder where she's at-ra
And I wish the old girl were here
Abdul yearns for Cleopatra
Abdul takes her or takes none
He says
Abdul loves Cleopatra, she's still the one

You know, I love my Cleopatra
I'm just grateful to know the old girl
Even though I wonder where she's at-ra
As I wander through this world
And Abdul yearns for Cleopatra,
[That's right]
Abdul takes her or takes none
[That's right, I take no one else]
I'll only settle for my little Cleopatra,
I don't care if she wants me
She's still the one

Guitar one time

Well,
I've been patient with this Cleopatra
And I know
Well I've done my part
All I can do now is just
Wait for her, wait for her
Wait for time to change her heart
That's all I can do
I can't talk to her anymore
She'd just resent me
I yearn for Cleopatra
Abdul takes her or takes none
Well
I want my Cleopatra
She's still the one you know

Still the one
I don't care even if my friends think she doesn't want me
She's still the one
I want my Cleopatra
She's still the one
I want my Cleopatra
She's still the one
I yearned for years for Cleopatra
It's a good thing I'm finally with her now
It's been four years
She's still the one
What ??? are we talking about in this song?
Sexual ???
She's still the one
??? Whimsical word throwing around
???
Well it's not their fault, they just don't listen
???
I don't really like to come out and say all this stuff
Actually ??? leave it to the listener
This whimsical jazz has got to go
I mean let's face it
??? I don't even know what the word means
I think it's supposed to be someone's way of saying
???
Anyway, I don't get it
Like, like I was talking about a desert you know
Did I want this song to be funny?
Of course I did
That doesn't mean I didn't mean the damn thing
I want my Cleopatra
??? I want my Cleopatra
???
Yeah, I want my Cleopatra
She's still the one
I want my Cleopatra
She's still the
I yearned for her
???
In spite of time
In spite of discouragement
She's still the one
In spite of time's ravages, that's right
In spite of people telling me, you're nuts
Well ???
I won, so I don't care
Was she worth it? Of course she was worth it
??? Yes it does
??? Happy life
Jonathan, almost done? Yes
I started talking ???
I started to explode into this outburst
??? Isn't that right, yeah
???
And that was because after a year
It was just a year I found this person
???
Time did nothing to change her charms
In fact I was glad
I was glad that after all this time
???
Could not just be imagined out of existence
Could not just be thrown away by a few drinks
Could not be forgotten
???
Some people use this word
???
West coast
Who could not be forgotten
With just a one night stand
They say in what we call dating bars
Who could not be forgotten
With some chemicals and drugs
Substances ???
Could not be forgotten
???
That's right, it was good to have something like this
It's called falling in love
???
Abdul met Cleopatra
???
She's after all these years
She's still the one

Lyrics

???

Abdul has not seen his Cleopatra
It's been over now a year
How I wonder where she's at-ra
And I wish the old girl were here
Abdul yearns for Cleopatra in the blazing desert sun
He sing now
Abdul wants Cleopatra, she's still the one

You know, I love my Cleopatra
I'm just grateful to know the old girl
Even though I wonder where she's at-ra
As I wander through this world
Abdul yearns for Cleopatra, in the blazing desert sun
He sing now
Abdul wants Cleopatra, she's still the one

???

I will wait for Cleopatra
For I know my time will come,
And I'll be ready for wherever she'll be at-ra,
I'll be so strong now by that point and not so dumb
Abdul yearns for Cleopatra Abdul takes her or takes none
Boys

Abdul loves Cleopatra, she's still the one
(Still the one)
I want my Cleopatra, she's still the one
(Still the one)

[You gotta know that my friend ???
I would get her back,
They said that Jonathan ???
I wanted Cleopatra I didn't want anyone else ???
Abdul loves Cleopatra ???
My friends said Jonathan Jonathan you're wasting your time,
She's with someone else
??? Go with you but I knew she would,
I knew I wanted my Cleopatra I wouldn't take anyone else
They said but Jonathan why don't you try to find another girl?
Just a waste of time, waste of time,
I knew it wouldn't do any good,
I knew it didn't matter about other girls,
I knew that she was (still the one)
That's right, I didn't care,
I knew there were other pretty girls, yeah sure,
Remember that song I was just singing to you?
Lots of pretty girls, but I don't care,
I just would take Cleopatra,
Cleopatra isn't her real name, her real name is something different,
I changed the name to protect the innocent,
How did things work out?
Oh, it worked out great, thank you,
Yeah things are good now, yeah,
It took four years before we got together finally,
So it worked out,
And I didn't want anyone else, I knew I didn't want, I didn't,
Jonathan Jonathan suppose she never came back?
Suppose she never came back then?
She would have still been the one,
I still wouldn't have taken anyone,
Jonathan you gotta be shitting us, you still,
Jonathan, Jonathan you gotta be pulling our leg,
Now you're not gonna tell us folks here that if she never came back,
I don't care, she's still the one]

I wanted my little Cleopatra
She's still
(Still the one)
I wanted my little, I wanted my my little
I still in love with Cleopatra
But she's still
I want my Cleopatra
She's still the one

New Morning

Lyrics

Abdul has not seen Cleopatra
It's been almost now a year
How I wonder where she's at-ra
And I wish the old girl were here
Abdul yearns for Cleopatra, Abdul takes her or takes none
Abdul loves Cleopatra, she's still the one

I love Cleopatra
I'm just grateful that I know that old girl
and though I wonder where she's at-ra
As I wander through this world
And Abdul yearns for Cleopatra, in the early morning sun
Abdul loves Cleopatra, she's still the one

Abdul yearns for Cleopatra, in the blazing desert sun
Abdul loves Cleopatra, she's still the one
