THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS


Constantinople Lyrics

Istanbul was Constantinople,
Now its Istanbul not Constantinople,
Been a long time gone from Constantinople,
Now its your delight on a moonlit night.

Every gal in Constantinople
Lives in Istanbul not Constantinople
So if you visit 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 liked i better that way.

So take me back to Constantinople,
No you can't go back to Constantinople,
Been a long time gone from Constantinople,
Why did Constantinople get the works?
Thats nobodys business but the Turks.
WHOA!
Istanbul, Istanbul!

Even old New York,
Was once New Amsterdam,
Why they changed it i can't say,
People just liked i better that way.

So take me back to Constantinople,
No you can't go back to Constantinople,
Been a long time gone from Constantinople,
Why did Constantinople get the works?
Thats nobodys business but the Tuuurks!
ISTANBULLLLLLL!!!!!!!

The amazing thing about Constantinople is that it was the eastern half of the Roman empire that survived. Unfortunately the turks brutally conquered Constantinople in 1453 and renamed it Istanbul.
