LOW DOWN LAZY TURK-1939
Released in Australia

A Turk inside his harem, he smokes his Turkish pipe
He sits on his Turkish carpet, and he eats his Turkish tripe
The way he'll sleep just makes you weep
Though he's umpteen wives to keep.

He's a low down lazy Turk, he'll do anything but work
In his harem every night he'll nibble and bite his Turkish delight.

Then when he retires, at him his wives all smirk
He won't do much embracing 'cause all night the wall he's facing.
He's a low down lazy Turk (he's very bashful), that low down lazy Turk.

He's a low down lazy Turk, he'll do anything but work
In his harem every night he'll nibble and bite his Turkish delight.

As a paying guest, he took in young Miss Quirk
neath the blankets nearly smothered who was it that they discovered?
Why that low down lazy Turk (she thought she'd lost him) that low down lazy Turk.

Oh the low down lazy Turk, he'll do anything but work
In his harem every night he'll nibble and bite his Turkish delight.

He's not fond of sports, and most games he will shirk
Though at billiards he's no player on the cushions he's a stayer
He's a low down lazy Turk (he's never snookered) that low down lazy Turk.

He's a low down lazy Turk, he'll do anything but work
In his harem every night he'll nibble and bite his Turkish delight.

Of children he has none, his duties he will shirk
He could almost raise a nation but he lacks the inclination
He's a low down lazy Turk (he'd rather play darts) that low down lazy Turk.
