Rock the Casbah Songtext
von The Clash

Rock the Casbah Songtext

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

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
Ban that boogie sound
Degenerate, unfaithful
With that crazy Casbah sound


The Bedouin they brought out
The electric kettle drum
The local guitar picker
Got his guitar picking thumb
As soon as the sharif
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
Ooh, 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

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

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

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

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