Thread Name: Lyr Req: Turkish Delight (Ray Noble)
Subject: Lyr Req: Ray Noble's 'Turkish Delight'
Has anybody out there transcribed the lyrics from the old British recording of "Turkish Delight"? With Iraq in the news every night, this number is current events all over again. I remember the line "... the native quarter which occupies over three-quarters of the city of Baghdad" and most of the wives' tales, but not the whole darn thing, unfortunately. If anyone worked out the chord changes, that would be nice too.
