THE CLASH lyrics : "Rock The Casbah"

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' standing
On the radiator grille


CHORUS:
Sharia don't like it
Rockin' the Casbah

Rock the Casbah
Sharia 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 kettel drum
The local guitar picker

Got his guitar picking thumb
As soon as the Sharia
Had cleared the square

They began to wail

CHORUS


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

And the temple band took five
The crowd caught 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 between the minarets

Down the Casbah way

As soon as the Sharia was

Chauffeured outta there
The jet pilots tuned to
The @@#!pit radio blare


As soon as the Sharia was
Outta their hair

The jet pilots wailed

CHORUS


(Spoken throughout the last chorus):
He thinks it's not kosher

Fundamentally he can't take it
You know he really hates it
