On The Road To Mandalay lyrics

By the old Moulmein Pagoda, lookin' eastward to the sea
There's a Burma gal a settin' and I know that she waits for me
For the wind is in those palm trees and the temple bells, they say
"Come you back you British soldier
Come you back to Mandalay, come you back to Mandalay"

Come you back to Mandalay, where the old flotilla lay
Can't you hear those paddles chonkin' from Rangoon to Mandalay
On the road to Mandalay where the flyin' fishes play
And the dawn comes up like thunder, out of China, across the bay

Ship me somewhere east of Suez where the best is like the worst
Where there ain't no Ten Commandments and a cat can raise a thirst
'Cause those crazy bells are callin' and it's there that I would be
By the Moulmein Pagoda, lookin' lazy at the sea, lookin' lazy at the sea

Come you back to Mandalay, where the old flotilla lay
Can't you hear their paddles chonkin' from Rangoon to Mandalay
On the road to Mandalay where the flyin' fishes play
And the dawn comes up like thunder
