Irving Berlin – Lock Me In Your Harem And Throw Away The Key

Irving Berlin Lock Me In Your Harem And Throw Away The Key Şarkı Sözleri

[1st verse:]

In the heart of Cairo, the Sultan one day

Nearly lost his life when his horse ran away

Pat McCann, an Irishman, who happened to be there

Stopped the horse and saved the Sultan’s life by a hair

The Sultan said “I’ll give you anything I can afford”

Patrick answered “If you want to give me a reward

[Refrain:]

Lock me in your harem and throw away the key

Let me cuddle-uddle up to Rosie and May

Let me see the fat one who dances all the day

My eyes were made for seeing

Honest, I’m a human being

Down in your harem

There’s Rosie, Josie, Posie

And I know that you could spare ’em

So won’t you let me stay

Locked in the harem with the keys thrown away

[2nd verse:]

When the Sultan brushed off his clothes and could speak

He replied “You’re welcome to stay for a week”

Pat walked in the harem with a smile from ear to ear

Tho’ the Sultan said a week, he stayed for a year

The morning after Pat came home his wife began to weep

He could not explain why he was singing in his sleep
