As Abdul's long knife was extracting the life, In fact he was shouting, "Huzzah!" He felt himself struck by that wily Calmuck, Count Ivan Skavinsky Skavar. The Sultan drove by in his red-breasted fly, Expecting the victor to cheer, But he only drew nigh to hear the last sigh, Of Abdul Abulbul Amir. There's a tomb rises up where the Blue Danube rolls, And graved there in characters clear, Is, "Stranger, when passing, oh pray for the soul Of Abdul Abulbul Amir
Album A Gay Caballero. Abdul Abulbul Amir Lyrics. The sons of the Prophet were brave men and bold And quite unaccustomed to fear But the bravest by far in the ranks of the Shah Was Abdul Abulbul Amir. Now the heroes were plenty and well known to fame In the troops that were led by the Tsar And the bravest of these was a man by the name Of Ivan Skavinsky Skavar. One day this bold Russian had shouldered his gun And donned his most truculent sneer Downtown he did go, where he trod on the toe Of Abdul Abulbul Amir
Текст песни Children Abdul Abulbul Amir: The sons of the prophet were hardy and bold,And quite unaccustomed to fear,But the bravest of these was a man, I am toldNamed Abdul Abulbul Amir. This son of the desert, in battle aroused,Cou. When they needed a man to encourage the van, Or to harass the foe from the rear, Or to storm a redoubt, they had only to shout For Abdul Abulbul Amir. There are heroes aplenty and men known to fame In the troops that were led by the Czar; But the bravest of these was a man by the name Of Ivan Skavinsky Skivar. He could imitate Irving, play Euchre and pool And perform on the Spanish Guitar. In fact, quite the cream of the Muscovite team Was Ivan Skavinsky Skivar.
French begins by introducing his characters. They are on opposite sides but they are remarkably similar. Abdul is unaccustomed to fear and the bravest by far in the ranks of the Shah. Ivan is the bravest of all among the famous troops of the Czar. With two such titans involved we know there has to be trouble ahead, a heroic clash on the battlefield perhaps or some fight over a noble and worthy cause. The dispute isn’t over some great cause, or the love of a woman; it arises because Ivan treads on Abdul’s toe. We’re not sure whether this is an accident or a direct challenge but either way it gives great scope for comedy because the song proceeds in a mock heroic style in which a triviality is treated as if it’s a major event. The men’s puffed up pride becomes their downfall. Abdul and Ivan pay high price for their honour.
