Istanbul (Not Constantinople) (Brownsville Mix) - They Might Be Giants

"You're not taping this are you?"

"Over there! It's a white tornado! Look at it whirling around and spinning and everything. It's a white tornado!"
"White tornado my foot. That's a real tornado. Ooo, you ain't in New York City, baby."

Istanbul was Constantinople
Now it's Istanbul, not Constantinople
Been a long time gone, Constantinople
Now it's Turkish delight on a moonlit night
(Oh) every gal in Constantinople
(Oh) lives in Istanbul, not Constantinople
(Oh) so if you've a date in Constantinople
(Oh) 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 it better that way

So take me back to Constantinople
No, you can't go back to Constantinople
Been a long time gone, Constantinople
Why did Constantinople get the works?
That's nobody's business but the Turks'

"This is a recording (Doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo doo doo doo/ohhh, oh)
This-This is a recording (Doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo doo doo doo/
oh ohhh, oh oh)
This is a recording" (Doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo doo doo doo/
ohhh, oh oh oh)
