Album - Kismet


Lyrics - Not Since Nineveh



Baghdad! Don't underestimate Baghdad!
A city rich in romantic oriental lore

Baghdad! You must investigate Baghdad!
And learn a few of the facts you never knew before

Due south of the Garden of Eden
Due north of the Gulf of Aden
Where every male and maiden
Is laden down...with the blisses of
Baghdad, this irresistable town


When or where

Could you compare

High life

To the life you find here?

Not since Nineveh, not since Tyre,

Not since Babylon turned to mire

For a sin of a kind we never mind here!

Where or when ever again

Low life

Like the life well known here?

Not since Ninevah, not since Sidon

Not since Jericho started slidin'

From the din of a horn that's never blown here!

Our palaces are gaudier,

Our alley ways are bawdier,

Our princes more autocratic here

Our beggars more distinctly aromatic here

Where could you

Ever pursue

Your life

With the zeal we feel here?

Not since Babylon read that writing,

Not since Jericho heard that trumpet,

Not since Nebuchadnezzar's hanging garden went to pot,

Not since that village near

Gomorrah got

Too hot For Lot!

No, not since Nineveh,

Not since Ninevaheh-eh, eh-eh!

Nineveh!
