[Verse 1]
D
The sons of the Prophet are brave men and bold
                          A
And quite unaccustomed to fear,

But the bravest by far in the ranks of the Shah,
                  D
Was Abdul Abulbul Amir.

[Verse 2]
D
Now the heroes were plenty and well known to fame
                                   A
In the troops that were led by the Czar,

And the bravest of these was a man by the name
                  D
Of Ivan Skavinsky Skavar.

[Verse 3]
D
One day this bold Russian had shouldered his gun
                              A
And donned his most truculent sneer,

Downtown he did go where he trod on the toe
                 D
Of Abdul Abulbul Amir.

[Verse 4]
D
Young man, roared Abdul, has life grown so dull
                          A
That you wish to end your career?

Vile infidel, know, you have trod on the toe
                 D
Of Abdul Abulbul Amir.

[Verse 5]
D
Said Ivan "My friend, your remarks in the end
                            A
Will avail you of little, I fear

For you ne'er will survive to repeat them alive
                 D
Mr Abdul Abulbul Amir".

[Verse 6]
D
So take your last look at the sunshine and brook
                             A
And send your regrets to the Czar

For by this I imply, you are going to die,
                     D
Count Ivan Skavinsky Skavar.

[Verse 7]
D
They fought all that night neath the pale yellow moon;
                           A
The din, it was heard from afar,

And huge multitudes came, so great was the fame,
                  D
Of Abdul and Ivan Skavar.

[Verse 8]
D
The Sultan drove by in his red-breasted fly,
                        A
Expecting the victor to cheer,

But he only drew nigh to hear the last sigh,
                 D
Of Abdul Abulbul Amir.

[Verse 9]
D
Czar Petrovich too, in his spectacles blue,
                           A
Rode up in his new crested car

He arrived just in time to exchange a last line
                    D
With Ivan Skavinsky Skavar.

[Verse 10]
D
There's a tomb rises up where the Blue Danube rolls,
                               A
And graved there in characters clear,

Are, "Stranger, when passing, oh pray for the soul
                 D
Of Abdul Abulbul Amir."

[Verse 11]
D
A Muscovite maiden her lone vigil keeps,
                                      A
'Neath the light of the cold polar star,

And the name that she murmurs so oft as she weeps,
                  D
Is Ivan Skavinsky Skavar.
