Sweet dreams of you,
Every night I go through.     
Why can't I forget you and start my life anew?            
Instead of having sweet dreams about you.                   

You don't love me, it's plain.                          
I should know, I'll never wear your ring.                                 
I should hate you, the whole night through.                                         
Instead of having sweet dreams about you.                                               

Sweet dreams of you.                                                      
Every night I go through.                                                             
Things I know can't come true.                                                                    
Why can't I forget the past,                                                                            
Start loving someone new.                                                                                   
Instead of having sweet dreams about you.

The Nubian People [ The Nubians ]

The Nubians of Northern Africa embrace a history and tradition that is easily traced to the dawn of civilization.
The Nubians hold esteemed credentials that identify them as the very first people of whom modern archaeologists have evidence of from northeastern Africa.
The Nubians settle along the great Nile River from Aswan Egypt, to south of Sudan's capital of Khartoum.

The Nubians are an ancient people dating back to 4000 BC. Numbering approximately one million, the Nubians in both Sudan and Egypt
suffer from intentional discrimination because of their non-Arab descent. Following the construction of the Aswan High Dam in 1960,
the Nubians faced a painful exodus from their ancient dwellings. Hundreds of thousands of Nubians were forced to leave their homeland
because of flooding from the newly constructed dam. They were dispersed to less fertile areas in both Sudan and Egypt.
Great Nubians monuments and historical sites were lost as a result of the construction of the dam. The Nubians lost their ancient homeland in the 1960's,
but their culture and heritage remain ever constant. The Nubians are non-Arab Muslim tribes who speak mostly Arabic.
Although Nubians once were strong Christians during the sixth century, they are virtually all Muslims today.
The Nubians were converted to Christianity during the sixth century. They remained Christians until the gradual process of Islamization began to take place
from the fourteenth until the seventeenth centuries. The Nubians hold a few vestiges to their Christian past.
The symbol of the cross is still seen in the decorations of many Nubian homes.

In addition, children are dipped in the Nile at the age of three days which is reminiscent of baptism.
