lyrics

Cuz she's all about the Moor
'Bout the Moor
Othello!
She's all about the Moor
'Bout the Moor
Othello!
She's all about the Moor
'Bout the Moor
Othello!
She's all about the Moor
'Bout the Moor, Moor, Moor

Yeah, it's pretty clear
He ain't nobody's fool
But that Venetian general
Comes from Istanbul
He's the greatest yet
Cuz Iago told me so
And he has a leftennant
Named Michael Cassio

He's heading off to war
To build the siegeworks
He's gonna go and fight
The dastard evil Turks
He doesn't want his wife
To get in mischief
And so he gives to Desi
His lucky handkerchief

Cuz Desdemona's mama said date no Italian guys
(fa-la-la, fa-la-la)
Rather, marry a fella whose ego is not out of size
(fa-la-la, fa-la-la)
And he'll smother you baby with affection wild
(fa-la-la, fa-la-la)
And the pillow talk you know it will not be mild
(fa-la-la, fa-la-la)

Cuz she's all about the Moor
'Bout the Moor
Othello!
She's all about the Moor
'Bout the Moor
Othello!
She's all about the Moor
'Bout the Moor
Othello!
She's all about the Moor
'Bout the Moor, Moor, Moor

He's bringin' hummus back
Go off and tell all your carrots that
They have a tasty dip
And Iago's gonna go and steal the handkerchief

Cuz Desdemona's mama said date no Italian guys
(fa-la-la, fa-la-la)
Rather, marry a fella whose ego is not out of size
(fa-la-la, fa-la-la)
And he'll smother you baby with affection wild
(fa-la-la, fa-la-la)
And the pillow talk you know it will not be mild
(fa-la-la, fa-la-la)

Cuz she's all about the Moor
'Bout the Moor
Othello!
She's all about the Moor
'Bout the Moor
Othello!
She's all about the Moor
'Bout the Moor
Othello!
She's all about the Moor
'Bout the Moor, Moor, Moor

Cuz she's all about the Moor
'Bout the Moor
Othello!
She's all about the Moor
'Bout the Moor
Othello!
She's all about the Moor
'Bout the Moor
Othello!
She's all about the Moor
'Bout the Moor, Moor, Moor
