  Tabbed by:PJVillanueva  






  This was a Tin Pan Alley hit composed in 1921 by Harry Smith, 
  Francis Wheeler (lyrics) and Ted Sydner (music). Inspired by 
  a Valentino film called The Sheik, it was covered by jazz and
  early rock artists and later also by the Beatles. George, who
  learned the song from a rock 'n' roll version by Joe Brown, 
  an artist maybe made known to them by Brian Epstein, was in 
  charge of the lead vocal. The Beatles brought it to the Decca 
  recording sessions along with other numbers like Besame Mucho,
  September In The Rain, etc, some of which may have been Brian
  suggestions.
       
                                      




  Well I'm the Sheik of Araby
  Your love belongs to me.
  Well at night when you're asleep,
  Into your tent I'll creep. (Not arf!)

  The stars that shine above
  Will light our way to love.
  You'll rule this world with me,
  I'm the Sheik of Araby.
 
  Well I'm the Sheik of Araby,
  Your love belongs to me.
  Oh, at night when you're asleep,
  Into your tent I'll creep.

  The sun that shines above
  Will light our way to love.
  You'll rule this world with me,
  I'm the Sheik of Araby.
  Well I'm the Sheik of Araby,
  Well I'm the Sheik of Araby, yeah.
