Istanbul (Not Constantinople) - Lyrics

istanbul was constantinople
now it's istanbul not constantinople
been a long time gone
old constantinople's still has
turkish delight
on moonlight night
every gal in constantinople
is in istanbul, not constantinople
so if you've date in constantinople
she'll be waiting in istanbul
istan-istan-istan-istanbul
istanbul was constantinople
now it's istanbul not constantinople
been a long time gone
old constantinople's still has
turkish delight
on moonlight night
every gal in constantinople
is in istanbul, not constantinople
so if you've 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 like it better that way

better that way-better that way-better that way
istan-istan-istan-istanbul
istanbul was constantinople
now it's istanbul not constantinople
been a long time gone
old constantinople's still has
turkish delight
on moonlight night
every gal in constantinople
is in istanbul, not constantinople
so if you've date in constantinople
she'll be waiting in istanbul
