Constantinople video

"Constantinople" video from Icky Flix, 2001

"Constantinople" is a track by The Residents, first released on 1978's Duck Stab! EP. It is now one of The Residents' most well known tracks, and is the opening track on the album Duck Stab!/Buster & Glen.

The track may have been intended for a music video in 1979, however it was never completed. In 2001, an entirely new computer-generated animated music video was made available on the Icky Flix DVD.

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
I'm coming, I'm coming, Constantinople
Here I come, Constantinople
Here I come
Here I come, I'm coming
Here I come, 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 wondering 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
Yeah
