Istanbul -Not Constantinople- by Kaxen6 Istanbul -Not Constantinople- by Kaxen6
I just worked three and a half hours with that damn song stuck in my head. NOW I WILL BURN IT IN YOURS.

Istanbul was Constantinople
Now it's Istanbul, not Constantinople
Been a long time gone, Constantinople
Now it's Turkish delight on a moonlit night

Every gal in Constantinople
Lives in Istanbul, not Constantinople
So if you've a date in Constantinople
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

Istanbul (Istanbul)

Istanbul



Originally, Ezio was going to remark that New Amsterdam is still New Amsterdam, but he isn't alive late enough, so New Amsterdam doesn't even exist yet... so he just says there's only one Amsterdam.

Also, they did "ISTANBUL NOT CONSTANTINOPLE" like mad in Behemoth (Leviathan is a lovely book series, IT HAS PICTURES!) so yeah.
