[A] [D]  
[A]In the middle of a caravan
On a four wheel drive oasis
[D]There's a man with a thought in mind
To cash in on the desert faces
[A]He's got a truckload of Yorkshire girls
For your harem going places
[D]And the border bums never saw
The guns in the whiskey cases
There's a [A]real, big demand
And it's written in the palm of his hand
He's gonna [D]change the face of the desert
He's gonna sweep away the [D5]sand[Gadd9] [Cm6/D]
[A]Hang on sheik, I've got a yellow streak
I ain't here, I'm a mirage
[D]Get back Des, keep it under your fez
And don't give us away in the massage
[A]Look what I did for the pyramid
I put a pool in and made it pay
I built an [D]elevator and a film theatre
And I shipped it to the U.S.A.
`Cos there's a [A]real big demand
And it's written in the palm of my hand
I'm gonna [D]change the face of the desert
I'm gonna sweep away the [D5]sand
[Gadd9]Hang on f[Cm6]riends!
F#aug Aaug
There's a lot more goodies in the pipeline
So [C#6]this ain't the time to [Bb7]close the deal
[Gmadd9]Here's the de[Cmaj7]al
[D]Ooh, now [D/C#]you've got a Howitzer [Bb]all of your own
[D]Ooh, and a [D/C#]Panzer division to [Gm/Bb]chauffeur you home
Gun [D]running is [G]fun
Bbm C#m G (no 5th) A (no5th)
But hang on, friends, hang on friends
[D] [E] [A] [D]  
[A]Allah be praised, there's a whole new craze
We're gonna shoot up the foreign legion
And it's [D]up with the sheik
And down with the Frog
We're gonna liberate the region!
[A]Oh Effendi, we're gonna bury your head in the sand
[D]Oh Effendi, you better get off my doggone land
Hey, [A]Prince of the moonbeams
Son of the Sun, Light of a thousand stars
Your [D]gorillas are urban And there's bourbon on your turban
And the sun shines out of your ass
[A]Oh Effendi, I'm gonna grovel in your wake
[D]Oh Effendi, it's all been a big mistake
You're gonna [A]cut out my liver If I don't deliver
Things are getting out of hand
I'm going to [D]ride off into the sunset and
Make a deal with the promised [D5]land
[Gadd9]Goodbye fr[Cm6]iends
F#aug Aaug
There's no more goodies in the pipeline
