Trevor Horn Orchestra – 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 a moonlight night

Every gal in Constantinople
Lives in Istanbul, not Constantinople
So if you've a 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

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

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

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
