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 (Istanbul)

Even old New York was once New Amsterdam
Why they changed it I can't say
People just liked it better that way

Istanbul was Constantinople
Now it's Istanbul, not Constantinople
Been a long time gone, Constantinople
Why did Constantinople get the works?
That's nobody's business but the Turks

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



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.

Someone really should do a viral video of the game with this playing in the background.

And as always, you have made my day!

I see I'm not the only one whose thoughts went to this song when the game was announced.

You have no idea how glad I am that I'm not the only one who was thinking this.

It's now forever seared into my brain.

AAHH!!! Curse the magical power of music!! Now I'm never getting that song out of my head... >-<

I love that book series!:lol: Actually when I heard that the game takes place in Constantinople, I was so proud that I knew where it was. Not even my mom knew what or where it was. xD
