​Turkish Delight

This song is by Jackie Washington and appears on the album Midnight Choo Choo (1998).

Eye eye eye eye
And the first wife told her tale

Abdullah had a little lamb he swapped it for a camel
He didn't like its 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 eye
And the next wife told her tale

A young commercial traveller came through Baghdad one day
He climbed upon the palace gates to watch the girls at play
He promised he'd be good, but when the maiden girls appeared
He got so agitated, he fell down and broke his word

Eye eye eye eye
And the next wife told her tale

Once there were two plumbers and they left behind their tools
They always had to do it, it was in the union rules
One fell into the cistern and when his mates returned
It took two years to get him out, what overtime he earned

Eye eye eye eye
And the next wife told her tale

Aladdin loved a princess whom they called Belle Troubadour
Although Aladdin loved her, she loved Aladdin more
She'd open up the palace gates to let her drunken dad in
And who could blame her, if by chance, she sometimes let a lad in."

Eye eye eye eye
And the next wife told her tale

Once there were two dancing girls who danced about in gauze
And as they are to dancing, they hadn't any flaws
The chief of p'lice arrested them for showing too much zeal
He didn't mind the upper deck but he couldn't stand the keel

Eye eye eye eye
And the next wife sold her tail
