Istanbul was Constantinople Now it's Istanbul, not Constantinople Been a long time gone, Constantinople Now it's Turkish delight on a moonlit night (Oh) every gal in Constantinople (Oh) lives in Istanbul, not Constantinople (Oh) so if you've a date in Constantinople (Oh) 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'
