Rock the Casbah  The Clash

Rock the Casbah by the Clash

[Dm7] [Am7] [G7]  
[Em7] [F] [Em7] [C]  
[Am7]Now, the king told the [Em7]boogie men,
you have to [G7]let that raga drop.[Dm7]
The [Am7]oil down the desert way[Em7]
has been [G7]shaken to the top.[Dm7]
The [A7]sheik he drove his cadilla[Em7]c
he went a [G7]cruisin down the vill[Dm7]e.
The [Am7]Muezzin was a standing[Em7]
On the [F]radiator grille.
( Tab from: )
Sha[Dm7]reef don't like it.[Am7] [G7]
[Em7]Rock the [F]Casbah. [Em7]Rock the [C]Casbah.
Sh[Dm7]areef don't like it.[Am7] [G7]
[Em7]Rock the [F]Casbah. [Em7]Rock the [C]Casbah.
By order of the prophet
We ban that boogie sound.
Degenerate the faithful
With that crazy Casbah sound.
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,
They began to wail.
Now [Am7]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 [F]wind changed direction
and the temple band took five[G7]
The c[Am7]rowd got a whiff
Of that crazy casbah jive.
The king called up his jet fighters,
He said, you better earn your pay.
Drop your bombs down between the minarets
Down the casbah way.
As sson as the Shareef was chauffered out of there,
The jet pilote tuned to the cockpit radio blare.
As soon as the Shareef was outta their hair
The jet pilots wailed.
chours x 2
He thinks itís not kosher
Fundamentally he canít take it.
You know he really hates it.
