Frank Sinatra On the Road to Mandalay Lyrics

Last updated: 12/21/2011 10:00:00 AM

By the old Moulmein Pagoda
Looking eastward to the sea
There's a Burma girl a settin'
and i know she thinks of me

for the wind is in the 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 their paddles chunking
From Rangoon to Mandalay

On the road to Mandalay
Where the flying fishes play
And the Dawn comes up like thunder
out of China 'cross the bay

Ship me somewhere east of Suez
Where the best is like the worst
Where there ain't no Ten Commandments
And a man can raise a thirst

For the Temple Bells are calling
And it's thee that I would be
By the old Moulmein Pagoda
Looking eastward to the sea
