La-la-la-lee-ay

Has anybody ever been to Lebanon?
Does anybody really care to go at all?
Anybody want to go to Lebanon?
Where you can read the writings on the wall?

Do the caravans still ride across the sand?
Or is the season causing everything sacred to fall?
Do the sages sing their chant throughout the land?
Or has the song been silenced over the centuries to all?

Does the Sun still kiss the Earth in Lebanon?
Does the moonlight still reflect the sand at night?
Can a profit still come out of Lebanon?
Or has the thirst for profit changed the times?

Do Phoenician spirits dance across the sand?
Do the cedar still standing next to the ocean still grow?
Do the sages sing their chant throughout the land?
Or has their song been silenced?

La-da-dee-ay-pi-yay

Does the temple still exist in Lebanon?
Or have the winds of time been blowin' hard for all?
Does the Mosk still sing the Hymn of Lebanon?
Reciting old inscriptions from the wall?

Do the caravans now crawl across the sand?
And is the season causing everyone sacred to cry?
Can the people of the land still hear the call?
Or has the song been silenced (La-dee-ay) over the centuries to all?

La-la-la-lee-ay
La-da-dee-ay-pi-yay
