On the Road to Mandalay is a song by Oley Speaks (1874–1948) with text by Rudyard Kipling (1865–1936). Oley Speaks set to music a portion of Kipling's poem, Mandalay, 1890, from Barrack-Room Ballads, and Other Verses, published in 1892 and 1896. The song comprises three verses of Kipling's poem: the first, second and sixth. The text of the song is a first person description by a British soldier in 19th-century Burma, who has returned to Britain.
Come you back to mandalay Where the old flotilla lay I can here those paddles chonkin' From rangoon to mandalay. On the road to mandalay Where the flying fishes play And the dawn comes up like thunder Out of china across the bay. Ship me somewhere east of suez Where the best is like the worst And there ain't no ten commandments And a cat can raise a thirst. And those crazy bells keep ringing 'cause it's there that I long to be By the egg foo yong pagoda Looking eastward to the see. Submit Corrections.

My favourite on the album is probably a song called ‘Road To Mandalay’. We started to write, I was doing this French television show and then because we were in France I don’t know, I just picked up on French vibes and started singing a French sort of melody. Save me from drowning in the sea, beat me up on the beach’. And then it’s turned out to be the most, for me, touching song that I’ve written. Everything ever stolen has been lost, returned or broken, no more dragons left to slay’. It’s one of those songs that you go this is really sad, but it’s dead positive at the same time.
The Road to Mandalay" as written by and Robert Peter/chambers Williams. Save me from drowning in the sea Beat me up on the beach What a lovely holiday, there's nothing funny left to say. This sombre song would drain the sun But it won't shine until it's sung No water running in the stream, the saddest place we've ever seen. Everything I touched was golden Everything I loved got broken On the raod to Mandalay. Every mistake I've ever made Has been rehashed and then replayed As I got lost along the way. Bom bom bom ba da dup bom bom.
On the road to Mandalay, Where the flyin'-fishes play, An' the dawn comes up like thunder outer China 'crost the Bay! 'Er petticoat was yaller an' 'er little cap was green, An' 'er name was Supi-yaw-lat - jes' the same as Theebaw's Queen, An' I seed her first a-smokin' of a whackin' white cheroot, An' a-wastin' Christian kisses on an 'eathen idol's foot: Bloomin' idol made o' mud Wot they called the Great Gawd Budd Plucky lot she cared.
