"Rock the Casbah" as written by Joe Strummer, Mick Jones and Topper Headon....
CHORUS
The shareef don't like it
Rockin' the Casbah
Rock the Casbah
The shareef 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
The temple band took five
The crowd caught a wiff
Of that crazy Casbah jive

CHORUS

But the Bedouin they brought out
The electric camel drum
The local guitar picker
Got his guitar picking thumb
As soon as the shareef
Had cleared the square
As soon as the shareef was
Chauffeured outta there
The jet pilots tuned to
The cockpit radio blare
As soon as the Shareef was outa their hair
They began to wail

CHORUS
He thinks it's not kosher
Rockin' the Casbah
Rock the Casbah
R O C K Casbah
Rockin' the Casbah
Rock the Casbah
