Now the king told the boogie men
You have to let that raga drop
The oil down the desert way
Has been shaking to the top

The sheik he drove his Cadillac
He went a-cruising down the ville
The muezzin was a-standing
On the radiator grille

Sharif don't like it
Rocking the Casbah
Rock the Casbah
Sharif don't like it
Rocking 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 kettle drum
The local guitar picker
Got his guitar picking thumb

As soon as the sheriff
Had cleared the square
They began to wail

Sharif don't like it
Rocking the Casbah
Rock the Casbah
Sharif don't like it
Rocking the Casbah
Rock the Casbah

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
The temple band took five
The crowd caught a whiff
Of that crazy Casbah jive

Sharif don't like it
Rocking the Casbah
Rock the Casbah
Sharif don't like it
Rocking 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 Sharif was
Chauffeured outta there
The jet pilots tuned to
The cockpit radio blare

As soon as Sharif was
Outta their hair
The jet pilots wailed

Sharif don't like it
Rocking the Casbah
Rock the Casbah
Sharif don't like it
Rocking the Casbah
Rock the Casbah

Sharif don't like it
Rock the Casbah
(He thinks it's not kosher)
Rock the Casbah

Sharif don't like it
Rock the Casbah
(Fundamentally he can't take it)
Rock the Casbah

Sharif don't like it
Rock the Casbah
(You know he really hates it)
Rock the Casbah
