From a Turkish harem came Fatima With a pair of eyes that the boys all idolize,
All the girls said she was quite a schemer, She would always go for the other girlie’s beau.
She loved to go to parties, they tried to keep her out,
And every time they saw her coming they’d begin to shout

CHORUS: Keep the fellows quiet (sh!) Tell them not to play
‘Cause here comes Fatima with her ta-ra-boom-dee-ay.
Go and hide the “White Rock,” Put the food away,
‘Cause here comes Fatima and she spoils a perfect day.
Out the window we must go, if she comes in we’re through,
‘Cause you don’t know just what her ta-ra-boom-dee-ay can do,
Get a big policeman, Keep him here all day,
‘Cause here comes Fatima with her ta-ra-boom-dee-ay.

Back to Turkish harem went Fatima
But the Turks said “No, we would rather have you go;
You broke up too many homes, Fatima,
Had some good men shot and goodness knows what not.”
So she got on a steamer and went to gay Paree,
The Frenchmen saw her coming and they hollered out “wee-wee.”

CHORUS: Lock the doors and windows, Say we’re out today,
‘Cause here comes Fatima with her ta-ra-boom-dee-ay.
Ev’rybody’s nervous, Call up Doctor Gray,
Here comes Fatima and Fatima loves to play.
Out the window we must go if she plays “hide and seek;”
I guarantee that you wouldn’t see your fellow for a week.
Break up all the dishes, She’ll break them anyway,
Here comes Fatima with her ta-ra-boom-dee-ay.

Put John in the cellar, Lock up Bill and Ray,
‘Cause here comes Fatima with her ta-ra-boom-dee-ay.
Tie Sam in the woodshed, He don’t look O.K.,
If he sees Fatima he’ll postpone our wedding day.
When she starts to dance around, Oh boy, how she allures,
She’s got a shape that comes straight down, but oh how it detours,
Turn out all the bloodhounds, Keep that vamp away,
‘Cause here comes Fatima with her ta-ra-boom-dee-ay.
