The Lyrics

Turkey is officially changing its name to Turkiye. Sounds familiar.
Turk-i-ye was once known as Turkey
Now it's Turk-i-ye, and no longer Turkey
Put kebab on it, you can't call it Turkey
Pull an ottoman up, take a Camel break
Every gal who once lived in Turkey
Lives in Turk-i-ye, and no longer Turkey
So if you just ate a Thanksgiving Turkey
You've been eating a Turk-i-ye

Even Is-tan-bul was Con-stant-in-o-ple
Why they changed it I can't say
People just liked it better that way

So take me back to my home in Turkey
No, you can't go back, you don't live in Turkey
Now it's Turk-i-ye, no such place as Turkey
Why did Repub of Turkey get the works?
That's nobody's business but the Turks

Gob gob gobble, gob gobble gobble
Gobble, gob gob gobble, gob gobble gobble
Gobble, gob gob gobble, gob gobble gobble
Gobble, gob
Turk-i-ye (Turk-i-ye)

Gob gob gobble, gob gobble gobble
Gobble, gob gob gobble, gob gobble gobble
Gobble, gob gob gobble, gob gobble gobble
Gobble, gob
Turk-i-ye (Turk-i-ye)

Even Is-tan-bul was Con-stant-in-o-ple
Why they changed it I can't say
People just liked it better that way

No camels wrestling down in Turkey
Now it's camels wrestling down in Turkiye
Now it's Turk-i-ye, you can't call it Turkey
Why did Repub of Turkey get the works?
That's nobody's business but the Turks

Turk-i-ye!
