Rock the Casbah Songtext
von The Clash

Rock the Casbah Songtext

Now the King told the boogie man
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-standin′
On the radiator grille (ow!)

Sharif don't like it
Rockin' the Casbah
Rock the Casbah
Sharif 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 camel drum
The local guitar picker
Got his guitar-pickin' thumb
As soon as the Sharif had cleared the square
They began to wail

Sharif don′t like it
Rockin' the Casbah
Rock the Casbah
Sharif don′t like it
Rockin' 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
And the temple band took fire
The crowd caught a whiff
Of that crazy Casbah jive


Sharif don't like it
Rockin′ the Casbah
Rock the Casbah
Sharif don′t like it
Rockin' 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 the Sharif was chauffeured outta there
The jet pilots tuned to the cockpit radio blare
As soon as the Sharif was outta their hair
The jet pilots wailed

Sharif don′t like it
Rockin' the Casbah
Rock the Casbah
Sharif don′t like it
Rockin' the Casbah
Rock the Casbah

Sharif don′t like it
He thinks it's not kosher
Rockin' the Casbah
Rock the Casbah
Sharif don′t like it
Fundamentally can′t take it
Rockin' the Casbah
Rock the Casbah
Sharif don′t like it
You know he really hates it
Rockin' the Casbah
Rock the Casbah
Sharif don′t like it
He really, really hates it
