ROCKIN' IN BAGHDAD (Jerry Reed Hubbard) Jerry Reed - 1958 (Aahhh-aahhh-aahhh-aahhh-aahhh-aahhh-aahhh) Over in Baghdad in the burnin' sand They've got a new kind o' rhythm that's real cool, man They put a beat to the rhythm of their ancient land Then what'd they get, a crazy style And it's drivin' old Baghdad wild They're rockin' in Baghdad, a-havin' a ball Jumpin' in Baghdad, a-climbin' the wall Baghdad's rockin' tonight Doin' that boogie up right They're goin' like mad, rockin' in old Baghda-a-a-a-a-a-a-ad A long time ago back in old Baghdad The dance of the seven veils was the fad The Sultan got hip to these rhythm an' blues And now he's got a pair o' rockin' shoes His harem is a-boppin' to a boogie beat They've even got the camels hoppin' down the street A snake charmer threw his little flute away Got a guitar now and he's a-learnin' to play Somethin's really happened to old Baghdad 'Cause they're doin' that boogie and it goes like that Baghdad's rockin' tonight A-doin' that boogie up right They're goin' like mad, rockin' in old Baghda-a-a-a-a-a-a-ad (Instrumental Break) Now them cats ride camels from miles around To hear this new kind o' rhythm that old Baghdad found What happens when they hear this crazy mixed-up sound They start to shake, like a snake And they're makin' old Baghdad quake They're rockin' in Baghdad, a-havin' a ball All jumpin' in Baghdad, climbin' the wall Baghdad's rockin' tonight Doin' that boogie up right They're goin' like mad, rockin' in old Baghda-a-a-a-a-a-a-ad (Aahhh-aahhh-aahhh-aahhh-aahhh-aahhh-aahhh) (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2008)
