Well ... way down in ancient Persia
Yeah A long, long time ago
We have the story of Shirin and uh Fahrad
And I thought you might want to know
'cause Shirin, pretty Shirin,
had a real McCoy lover in her young Fahrad

Well ... pretty Shirin had to live with the Shah
but she went for a walk one day
well there were thousands of workmen out diggin'oh
but none dared to look her way
until she came to young Fahrad
Whose little heart had been set all aflame
He called out "Shirin, I love you"
and she felt loved when he called her name
Oh, 'cause Shirin, pretty Shirin,
had a real Mccoy lover in her young Fahrad

Waa-oo, yeah, in her Fahrad

You see her heart had already been won -uh
but she had to put her boy to the test
She said "See those mountains - dig me a tunnel
and I'll know you love Shirin the best"
Oh yeah, 'cause Shirin, pretty Shirin,
had a real Mccoy lover in her Fahrad

Oh yeah, yeah, in her Fahrad

Well look, he didn't say "Suppose she's kiddin'"
a-and he didn't say "Suppose it rains"
and he didn't say "A tunnel, you can't do that"
He just started shovelin' and callin' her name
Oh yeah, 'cause Shirin, oh Shirin,
had a real Mccoy lover in her young Fahrad

Oh yeah, yeah, in her Fahrad

Each stroke it worked a little miracle
o.k. each stroke did the work of ten men
That's right a lover McCoy this Fahrad
may not grace this grove again
Oh yeah, well Shirin, pretty Shirin,
had a real Mccoy lover in her Fahrad

Oh yeah, in her Fahrad

yeah,Well now the Shah by this point they were startin' to get worried
They were thinkin' how're we gonna keep Shirin
The advisor just said "Tell Fahrad that his Shirin has died
We won't be worried 'bout that boy again"
Oh yeah, Shirin, oh Shirin,
has a real Mccoy lover in her young Fahrad

Oh yeah, yeah, in her Fahrad

Now Fahrad believed their words
and he had no more to give
well he had no way of knowing
Where she was and he lost the will to live
Oh yeah, Shirin, oh Shirin,
had a real Mccoy lover in her Fahrad

Well, when the animals saw Shirin discover a dead Fahrad
Their little hearts were completely uptore
They said "Look we loved him too, Shirin,
we thought they didn't make 'em like your boy anymore"
Oh yeah, Shirin, pretty Shirin,
had a real Mccoy lover in her Fahrad

in her Fahrad

Well when Shirin heard the little birds words
She knew that they knew the score
So she just laid down by her Fahrad's side
and she died, not yearn (80 years?) anymore
Oh yeah, because Shirin, pretty Shirin,
had a real Mccoy lover in her young Fahrad

Yeah, Shirin, pretty Shirin
has a real McCoy lover in Fahrad
