Lyrics Edit

Here I come Constantinople

Here I come Constantinople

I am coming Constantinople

Here I come

Here I come Constantinople

Here I come Constantinople

I am coming Constantinople

Here I come

All the leaves are off of the oak and

All the sheep have followed the spoken

Word, I'm coming Constantinople

Here I come

So I stand out in the open

All my friends are with you I hope and

Pray I'm coming Constantinople

Here I come

Here I come Constantinople

Here I come Constantinople

I am coming Constantinople

Here I come

Here I come Constantinople

Here I come Constantinople

I am coming Constantinople

Here I come

Here I come Constantinople

Here I come Constantinople

I'm coming, I'm coming Constantinople

Here I come Constantinople

Here I come

Here I come, I'm coming

Here I come, Constant

It's been a good life, Constantinople, but I'm ready

I'm ready for you so here I come

I can't wait to get there, I got to get there soon Constantinople

I'm coming with my head high, I'm not coming on my knees

I want to see you, I got to be there now so here I come

I'm runnin' one more time, Constantinople, here I come

Here I come Constantinople

Here I come Constantinople

I am coming Constantinople

Here I come

Here I come Constantinople

Here I come Constantinople

I am coming Constantinople

Here I come

Trivia Edit

  • American rock band Primus has covered this, along with Hello Skinny, live during their early shows and for the reissue of Frizzle Fry as a medley, starting with Hello Skinny and ending with this.
  • It can be speculated that this song is about death, as the singer is stating he is coming to Constantinople, which now doesn't exist anymore and is now Istanbul.
