Now, the King told the boogie men,    you have to let that raga drop,
    Am                        Em             G                 Dm
The oil, down the desert way,     has been shaken to the top,
     Am                           Em               G                     Dm
The sheik, he drove his cadillac,     he went a cruising down the ville,
      Am                    Em         F       F          F     F  F   F
The muezzin was a-standing  ...on the radi - ator grille-----!       Owwww!

The Sha - rif don't like----  it,          rocking the Casbah, rock the Casbah,

[Verse 2]
    Am                   Em      G                     Dm
By order of the prophet,     we ban that boogie sound,
        Am                  Em             G                   Dm
De - generate the faithful   ...with that crazy Casbah sound,
          Am                               Em
But the Bedouin, they brought out the e - lectric camel drum,
      G                           Dm
The local guitar picker got his guitar picking thumb,
    Am                       Em                  F        F              F
As soon as the Shariff had cleared the square, they be - gan to wail---!

[Verse 3]
     Am                                      Am
Now over at the temple,       ....oh, they really pack 'em in,
    Am                                         Am
The in crowd say it's cool    ...to dig this chanting thing,
             F                                      F
But, as the wind changed direction,    ...and the temple band took five,
G        Am                             Am
    The crowd got a whiff   ...of that crazy Casbah jive!

The King called up his jet fighters,    he said, "You better earn your pay!
           Am                        Em              G           Dm
Drop your bombs between the minarets   ...down the Casbah way!"
    Am                         Em
As soon as the Sharif was chauffered out of there,
     G                         Dm
The jet pilots tuned to the cockpit radio blare,
    Am                    Em                      F    F                F
As soon as the Sharif was out of their hair, the jet pilots wailed----!
