chico Origins: Istanbul (Not Constantinople) (55* d) Chords Add: ISTANBUL (NOT CONSTANTINOPLE) (4 Lads) 08 Jan 06



Am                   (E7)
Istanbul was Constantinople
Now it's Istanbul, not Constantinople
       E7
Been a long time gone, Constantinople
          Am                   E7
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

    Am E7   Am
Even old New York
Was once New Amsterdam
F
Why they changed it I can't say
E7
People just liked it better that way

So take me back to Constantinople
No, you can't go back to Constantinople
Now it's Istanbul, not Constantinople
Why did Constantinople get the works
That's nobody's business but the Turks'

Do do do, do-do-do dododododo
   Oh, oh-oh-oh...
Do do do, do-do-do dododododo
Do do do, do-do-do dododododo
Do - Istanbul

Em/maj7
Itstanbul!
