At night, when you're asleep, Into your tent I'll creep. And the stars that shine above Will light our way to love. Youll rule this world with me, The Sheik of Araby. Oh I'm the Sheik of Araby, And all the women worship me, You should see them follow me around! Not bad! Even wives of all the other sheiks Effect to kiss my rosy cheeks, And that ain't bad, in fact it's good I've found, I'm a cad! When I'm laying down to sleep, I'm counting girls instead of sheep! From my harem I can't scare 'em out, Why should I? They're beauties of all races, And some have pretty faces! I'm the sheik who knows what love is all about!
