This song was the first to be played at JoCo's first [[London show]]n March 20, 2008.

The last few lines of the song about chewing underwear and naked ladies refers to a common children's song, [[The Streets of Cairo]]One common variation on the lyrics to "The Streets of Cairo" includes the lines: < here's a place in France
Where the naked ladies dance
And there's a hole there in the wall
Where the men can see it all
But the men don't care
Because they chew their underwear

e melody is far more well known than the lyrics, commonly used in cartoons when deserts, Arabia or belly dancing is shown, as well as songs like [[Istanbul (Not Constantinople)]]

This song was originally from a "Little Gray Book" lecture (title unknown, something about "Europe").


T is song is available in MP3 or FLAC format at jonathancoulton.com or as part of the [[oking Monkey]]lbum.
