  • Song Lyrics:
    Istanbul was Constantinople,
    Now it's Istanbul, not Constantinople.
    Been a long time gone, Constantinople.
    Now it's Turkish delight on a moonlit night.

    Every gal in Constantinople
    Lives in Istanbul, not Constantinople,
    So if you've got a date in Constantinople
    She'll be waiting in Istanbul.

    Even old New York
    Was once New Amsterdam.
    Why they changed it I can't say;
    People just liked it better that way.

    So take me back to Constantinople.
    No, you can't go back to Constantinople.
    Been a long time gone, Constantinople.
    Why did Constantinople get the works?
    That's nobody's business but the Turks'!

    Even old New York
    Was once New Amsterdam.
    Why they changed it I can't say;
    People just liked it better that way.

    So take me back to Constantinople.
    No, you can't go back to Constantinople.
    Been a long time gone, Constantinople.
    Why did Constantinople get the works?
    That's nobody's business but the Turks'!

    Istanbul
    (Bill L)
