Subject: ADDPOP: Turkish Delight

Once there was a Calif
He lived in old Baghdad
The poor old bloke's been dead for years
But, who cares about that?
He couldn't sleep a wink at night
He had two hundred wives
Who had to tell him stories
Or the wives, they lost their lives,

Eye eye eye eye,
And the first one told her tale,
Once there was a plumber
He left behind his tools
He always had to do it
It was in the union rules
He fell into the cistern
And when his mates returned
It took three years to get him out
What overtime he earned.

eye eye eye eye,
And the next wife told her tale,
Abdullah had a little lamb
H swapped it for a camel
He didn't like the color
So, he daubed it with enamel,
The hot sun melted all the paint
While crossing the Sahara,
He can't get off because the paint
Is stuck to his tarara,

eye eye eye and the next wife told her tale.

King Solomon that wise old man,
He had a thousand wives
He bought a lovely Pontiac to take them on a drive
The Pontiac broke down one night and here's where trouble starts
His wives are waiting in the road, but he's got no spare parts,

eye eye eye and we havn't got any more wives.

That's all I ever heard of this.
