A Constantinople song not by They Might Be Giants or The Four Lads

A little side-post—Byzantium was a city in the eastern half of the Roman Empire. Constantine I made Byzantium the empire’s eastern capital, and so the citizens started calling it Constantinople—Constantine’s city (poli is Greek for city).

Here’s British singer/songwriter Leslie Sarony to help you remember how to spell it. Feel free to sing along.
