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 a date in Constantinople She'll be waiting in Istanbul

Even old New York Was once New Amsterdam

So take me back to Constantinople (yikes) No, you can't go back to Constantinople (yikes) Been a long time gone, Constantinople (yikes) Why did Constantinople get the works? (yikes) That's nobody's business but the Turks' (Shall we play?)

Even old New York Was once New Amsterdam

Yikes Yikes Yikes Yikes

Ahhhhh Ahhh Ahhhhh Ahhh Ahhhhh Ahhh Ahhhhh

Ahhhhh Ahhh Ahhhhh Ahhh Ahhhhh Ahhh Ahhhhh

Even old New York Was once New Amsterdam

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

Even old New York Was once New Amsterdam

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