Rock the Casbah by The ClashEdit

Now, the king told the boogie men

You have to let that raga drop

The oil down the desert way

Has been shakin' to the top


The sheik, he drove his Cadillac

He went a-cruisin' down the ville

The muezzin was a-standin'

On the radiator grille


The sharif don't like it

Rockin' the Casbah

Rock the Casbah

The sharif don't like it

Rockin' 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 sharif

Had cleared the square

They began to wail


The sharif don't like it

Rockin' the Casbah

Rock the Casbah

The sharif don't like it

Rockin' the Casbah

Rock the Casbah


Now over at the temple

Ooh, 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 caught a whiff

Of that crazy Casbah jive


The sharif don't like it

Rockin' the Casbah

Rock the Casbah

The sharif don't like it

Rockin' the Casbah

Rock the Casbah


The king called up his jet fighters

He said, "You better earn your pay

Drop your bombs between the minarets

Down the Casbah way"


As soon as the sharif

Was chauffeured outta there

The jet pilots tuned to

The cockpit radio blare

As soon as the sharif

Was outta their hair

The jet pilots wailed


The sharif don't like it

Rockin' the Casbah

Rock the Casbah

The sharif don't like it

Rockin' the Casbah

Rock the Casbah


The sharif don't like it (He thinks it's not kosher)

Rockin' the Casbah

Rock the Casbah


The sharif don't like it (Fundamentally can't take it)

Rockin' the Casbah

Rock the Casbah


The sharif don't like it (You know he really hates it)

Rockin' the Casbah

Rock the Casbah
