The Shareef Don't Like It...

"Rock the Catbox...Rock the Catbox." Now go listen to the original you music hating mutant - The Clash - Rock the Casbah. The world would be such a better place if everyone was like the two magnificent bastards in this video. If an Arab and an Israeli can rock out over 'The Clash' well then there is nothing we can't find some common ground over. To simplistic? Well if my old roomie can admit, after twenty years, that he was singing 'rock the catbox' the whole time then anyone can change.

Now the king told the boogie men
You have to let that raga drop
The oil down the desert way
Has been shakin to the top
The sheik he drove his cadillac
He went a cruisnin down the ville
The muezzin was a standing
On the radiator grille

The shareef dont like it
Rockin the casbah
Rock the casbah
The shareef dont like it
Rockin the casbah
Rock the 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 over at the temple
Oh! they really pack em in
The in crowd say its 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


The king called up his jet fighters
He said you better earn your pay
Drop your bombs between the minarets
Down the casbah way

As soon as the shareef was
Chauffeured outta there
The jet pilots tuned to
The cockpit radio blare

As soon as the shareef was
Outta their hair
The jet pilots wailed


He thinks its not kosher
Fundamentally he cant take it.
You know he really hates it.
