as recorded by
Thomas "Fats" Waller & his Rhythm
August 10th 1939 New York
Abdullah was the king of Amazoola,
He lived in a harem down in Boola.
Abdullah took a trip to Honolula,
There he met a pretty girl named Lula.
He was so entranced
By the way she danced,
He forgot his wives in Boola,
Hocked his crown,
Bought her a gown,
Gave up his room for Lula.
Abdullah pitched a hot guitar for Lula,
Ah, swings out in a torrid hula hula.
