Lyrics

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 don't like it
Rockin' the Casbah
Rock the Casbah
The shareef don't 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

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

The shareef don't like it
Rockin' the Casbah
Rock the Casbah
The shareef don't like it
Rockin' the Casbah
Rock the Casbah

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

The shareef don't like it
Rockin' the Casbah
Rock the Casbah
The shareef don't like it
Rockin' the Casbah
Rock the Casbah
He thinks it's not kosher
Fundamentally he can't take it.
You know he really hates it.

I am in the eighth grade. In my class, there is a kid who has some sort of learning disability, but it has never been specified what exactly is wrong with him. Anyway, on my last day of seventh grade, he invited me to his house for a "dance party, " and since one of my other friends was going to be there, I said "sure." When I got there, the two kids were taking turns playing songs on YouTube. I put this song on, and it's been his favorite song ever since. He asks me to pull out my phone and put it on everyday, and he mimics Joe Strummer's dances and expressions. He knows every word, and it brings all of us joy when we see him dancing and singing along.

It's a shame that so many people misinterpret this song.

"Rock the Casbah" is meant to mean "jam out to music, " not "blowing it up."

It's an ode to disobeying tyrants. In the song, even the Sharif's jet fighters ignore the unreasonable orders given to them and tune into the music instead.

This comments section is an unholy mess of nostalgic middle aged men, Jojo fans, and 12 year olds making memes about WW3.

When this first came out, I was in high school and one of my friends thought the song title and chorus was "Fuck The Post Office". She announced this shocking song in Church in front of the entire congregation as proof that the pop music scene had went over to the devil. Perplexed, I asked her what band she was talking about. She described the video and then we all had a good laugh explaining to her and the rest of the congregation that she had misheard the chorus.

I used to fly the F4D from Bergstrom AFB for the national air guard. This base is now Austin city airport, and the former Robert Mueller airport is now a housing estate. I left the service in 1991 and I now live in Spain operating a pleasure flight company. 2:41 These are certainly from our squadron, but I cannot see the pilots tail codes. We would form training patrol groups of 8 and 4 and do a triangle from here to Houston via College Station, down to Taft near Corpus Christi and back to Austin passing west of San Antonio, mainly to keep hours up and the aircraft airworthy. This patrol would take just under 2 hours to complete and it was done twice a week.

Three memories for me: 1) the dudeslice on the right looks like me in the CAP early 80s; 2) heard this all too much in a faraway land doing a job that didn't exist early 90s; 3) I had that same vest in highschool

I love you Dad, I loved watching you giggle when this song came on. I'm surprised you said it was your favorite but I think that's only because I was goofing off. I miss you so much!
RIP to the Best Boat Captain And Dad in the whole wide world...
