Another in the long line of “Sheik” songs.

He cuts a carpet like nobody can,
How he can jump it, When he hears the trumpet,
That oriental boogie man!
He’s high! When the music wails,
That guy can make you shake off your seven veils;
That’s why he’s got all the harem feelin’ great!
Goin’ far! Beatin’ eight to the bar!
He’s hot! When he starts to move,
He’s got the mighty Sultan right in the groove.
I’ve heard that he learned to jive it in New York,
That’s the talk goin’ around.

ABOU BEN BOOGIE, THE SHEIK BOOGIE WOOGIE,
He cuts a carpet like nobody can,
How he can jump it, when he hears the trumpet,
That oriental boogie man!
He’s hep and rarin’ to step,
Whenever he hears a band! ‘Cause
ABOU BEN BOOGIE, THE SHEIK BOOGIE WOOGIE,
He plays the juke box as loud as he can,
All of the harem are fightin’ to share ’em [‘im?]
That oriental boogie man!
