Well now there was a sheik from Saudi
Had a Rolls and two Ferarris and a harem that would please any man
A palace i am told just loaded with gold
A hundred thousand acre farm in Sudan
Oils well pumpin' both a day and night
Still he wasn't satisfied with his material life
Somthin was missin' he was so confused
And then he started diggin' rythm and blues.
Yeah one night by accident
Out of a US Army tent he heard a strange new jumpin beat
Oh it was pleasently disturbing
And it moved him from his turban to the sandals on his feet
Ray Charles, BB King, and Bob ??????
James Brown and Bo Diddley had him dancin' in the sand
He said at last I found my destiny
Yeah I'll be the sheik of r&b

Now he's the sheik of R and B
The rythm and blues king of all Arabee
Well he's as cool as an oasis
Hotter than the sun
He's a camel kickin guitar pickin' sun-of-a-gun Yeah!
You just got to see the Sheik of R&B

Now during the embargo
He took off for Chicago
Just the city to play some blues, yeah
He rented out the Hyde
Then decided he just might park his camels all down at the loop
Now he's ?singin'? in the city on the south side of town
Playin' that guitar and really gettin' down
You just got to see the sheik of R&B

Yeah he's the sheik of R and B
He's the rythm and blues king of all Arabee
Yeah he's as cool as an oasis
Hotter than the desert sun
He's a camel kickin' guitar pickin' sun-of-a-gun Yeah!
You just got to see the Sheik of R&B
You just got to see the Sheik of R&B
Your too cool to out do
