Istanbul (Not Constantinople) Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Istanbul was Constantinople
Now it's Istanbul not Constantinople
Been a long time gone
Old Constantinople's still has Turkish delight
On a moonlight night
Verse 2
Every gal in Constantinople
Is a Miss-stanbul, not Constantinople
So if you've date in Constantinople
She'll be waiting in Istanbul
Verse 3
Even old New York was once New Amsterdam
Why they changed it, I can't say
(People just liked it better that way)
Verse 0
[Chorus]
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'

Istanbul!!
Istanbul!!
Verse 5
Even old New York was once New Amsterdam
Why they changed it, I can't say
(People just liked it better that way)
Verse 6
[Chorus]
Verse 7
Istanbul!!
