Dm7       Am7  G7
Em7  F    Em7  C

Am7                    Em7
Now, the king told the boogie men,
            G7                  Dm7
you have to let that raga drop.
    Am7                       Em7
The oil down the desert way
         G7                    Dm7
has been shaken to the top.
    A7                        Em7
The sheik he drove his cadillac
          G7                   Dm7
he went a cruisin down the ville.
    Am7                       Em7
The Muezzin was a standing
       F
On the radiator grille.

chorus:

   Dm7                Am7  G7
Shareef don't like it.
Em7      F       Em7      C
Rock the Casbah. Rock the Casbah.
  Dm7                 Am7  G7
Shareef don't like it.
Em7      F       Em7      C
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.

chorus

    Am7
Now over at the temple
Oh, they really pack em in.
The in crowd say it's cool
To dig this chanting thing.
           F
But as the wind changed direction 
                              G7
and the temple band took five
     Am7
The crowd got a whiff
Of that crazy casbah jive.

chorus

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.

He thinks itís not kosher
Fundamentally he canít take it.
You know he really hates it.
