A7 Em7

Now, the king told the boogie men,


G7 Dm7


you have to let that raga drop.


A7 Em7

The oil down the desert way


G7 Dm7

has been shaking to the top.


A7 Em7

The sheik he drove his cadillac


G7 Dm7

he went a cruisin down the ville.


A7 Em7

The Muezzin was a standing



On the radiator grille.




Dm7 A7 G7

Shareef don't like it.


Em7 Fmaj7 Em7 A7

Rock the Casbah. Rock the Casbah.


Dm7 A7 G7

Shareef don't like it.


Em7 Fmaj7 Em7 A7

Rock the Casbah. Rock the Casbah.



By order of the prophet

We ban that boogie sound.

Degenerate the faithful

With that crazy Casbah sound.

But the Bedouin, they brought out the electric camel drum.

The local guitar picker got his guitar picking thumb.

As soon as the Shareef had cleared the square,

They began to wail.




Now over at the temple

Oh, they really pack em in.

The in crowd say it's cool

To dig this chanting thing.

But as the wind changed direction

and the temple band took five

The crowd got a whiff

Of that crazy casbah jive.




The king called up his jet fighters,

He said, you better earn your pay.

Drop your bombs down between the minarets

Down the casbah way.

As sson as the Shareef was chauffered out of there,

The jet pilote tuned to the cockpit radio blare.

As soon as the Shareef was outta their hair

The jet pilots wailed.


Chorus to extro.
