THE MAHARAJAH OF MAGADOR Lewis Harris & John Jacob Loeb Recorded by Vaughan Monroe with vocal by Ziggy Talent There's a rich Maharajah of Magador who had ten thousand camels and maybe more. He had rubies and pearls and the loveliest girls, but he didn't know how to do the Rhumba. He could afford a big reward so to his people one day he said: Ah............... (falsetto a la comic Maharajah)................ Which means: Take my rubies and take my pearls, take my camels and take my girls Rhumba lessons are wanted for the rich Maharajah of Magador. So a slick little chick answered that's for me to the ad he had placed in Variety. When she saw his expanse she could tell at a glance that he'd never learn how to do the Rhumba. He had his wealth, he had his health, and so he looked in her eyes and said: Ah............... (falsetto a la comic Maharajah)................ Which means: Take my rubies and take my pearls, take my camels I'll keep my girls >From now on you'll be working for the rich Maharajah of Magador. He was anxious to learn so she taught him right but she taught him the thrill of a moonlight night, He discovered the bliss of a half promised kiss, but he never learned how to do the Rhumba. And on the day she went away you could hear all the people say: She took his rubies and took his pearls, took his camels and took his girls, Took his money and what is more, she made the rich Maharajah the poor Maharajah of Magador.
