"The Sheik of Araby" as written by Harry Smith, Francis Wheeler and Ted Snyder....
"I'm the Sheik of Araby,
Your love belongs to me.
At night when you're asleep
Into your tent I'll creep.
The stars that shine above,
Will light our way to love.
You'll rule this land with me;

    General CommentIt occurs in various pre-EMI compilations - it was recorded at the Decca audition, and is a cover version of an ancient music-hall novelty number, with George singing. Don't know why they bothered.

    General Commentsheik, specifically the sheik of araby is said to be a man who has extreme power over women by his extreme atractiveness

    i think that it is a very well played song and is the beatles simply having a good time - women literally fainted at their arrivals and i think it's just them having fun with the fact that yes - we have all girls at our beck and call and yes we have really revolutionized music as the world knows it

    simply a fun song to listen to
