Thread Name: Lyr Req: Turkish Delight (from Arthur Godfrey)
Subject: RE: Mudcat FAQ - Newcomer's Guide
I have been trying to get the words to a song that Arthur Godfrey sang, perhaps in the 40's. I did find Turkish Delight and the words seemed to follow the music that I know. The one about the camel and enamel. The words I remember are:

King Solomon, that wise old man, he had a thousand wives.
He bought a brand new Cadillac to take them all on drives.
The Cadillac broke down one day, and here's where trouble starts,
His wives were waiting in a row, and he's got no spare parts,

Eye, eye, eye, eye, and the next wife told her tale.

Aladdin loved a princess, her name, Belle Troubadour,
And though she loved her daddy, she loved Aladdin more.
She opened wide the palace gates to let her drunken dad in.
And who could her, if by chance, she sometimes let a lad in."
