Not Since Nineveh Lyric

 
Kismet Cast Lyrics
Kismet Soundtrack - Musical, 2000
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
Not Since Nineveh Baghdad, don't underestimate Baghdad,
A city rich in romantic Oriental lore.
Baghdad, you must investigate Baghdad,
And learn a few of the facts you never knew before.
Due South of the Garden of Eden,
Due North of the Gulf of Aden,
Where every male and maiden
Is laden down,
With the blisses of Baghdad,
This irresistable town.

When or where
Could you compare
High life
To the life you find here?
Not since Nineveh, not since Tyre,
Not since Babylon turned to mire
For a sin of a kind we never mind here!



Where or when ever again
Low life
Like the life well known here?
Not sine Nineveh, not since Sidon,
Not since Jericho started slidin'
From the din of a horn that's never blown here!
Our palaces are gaudier,
Our alley ways are bawdier,
Our princes more autocratichere,
Our beggars more distinctly aromatic here!

Where could you
Ever pursue
Your life
With the zeal we feel here?
Not since Babylon read that writing,
Not since Jericho heard that trumpet,
Not since Nebuchadnezzar's hanging garden went to pot, Not since that village near Gomorrah got Too hot For Lot!
No, not since Nineveh,
Not since Ninevaheh-eh, eh-eh!
Nineveh!
