Ahab, The Arab  
INTRO: Am  F (3x)  C 
N/C                   C 
Let me tell you 'bout Ahab, the Arab 
    F                    C 
The sheik of the burnin sand 
He had emeralds and rubies just drippon offa him 
       F                          G 
And a ring on every finger of his hand 
He wore a big ol' turban, wrapped around his head 
       F               Am    C 
And a scimitar by his side, and 
Every evenin, about midnight, he'd jump on his camel named Clyde 
And ride 
Am    (alternate between Am and F on the chant) 
Silently through the night to the sulten's tent where he would secretly meet up 
with Fatima of the Seven Veils, swingingest grade "A" number one US choice dancer 
in the Sultan's whole harem, 'cause, hehe, him and her had a thing goin on, you know, 
and they'd been secretly carryin' on for some time now behind the Sultan's back 
And you could hear him talk to his camle as he rode out across the dunes, hsi voice 
would cut through the still night desert air and he'd say: 
Oyyyya bibibia bibibia bibia bibia aaaaaaaaa oohhh aaaaa ooooh ayaaaa ayaaaaa  
ayyaaa aaa oooh aaayaaa twennya myesh mya   ayyyiii aayyyyya ooohhh  aaiiii 
Sold! American! 
Which is Arabic for "Stop, Clyde!" And Clyde'd say: 
Bleeeaah bleeeaah!  Which is camel for "What the heck did he say anyway" 
Well he brought that camel to a screeching halt  
F                                        C 
(eeeeeerrrrrh!) in the rear of Fatima's tent 
Jumped off Clyde, snuck around the corner 
    F                G 
And into the tent he went 
C                    F                     Am   C 
There he saw Fatima, layin on a zebra skin rug, with 
(Rings on her fingers and bells on her toes and a bone in her nose ho ho) 
Am (alternate between Am and F on the chant) 
(laugh) There she was friends, lyin there in all her radiant beauty, eatin on a  
raisen, grape, apricot, pomegranate, bowl of chittlin's, two bananas, three Hershey  
bars, sippin on a RC cola listenin to her transistor, watchin the Grand Ol' Opry on  
the tube, readin a Mad Magazine while she sung "Does Your Chewin Gum Lose Its Flavor"   
Yeah, Ahab walked right up to her and he say: 
Oyya bibibia bibibia ayyyya ayyyyyyyaaaaa (about four or five times) ehhhhhh 
ehhhhaaaa ehhhhaaaa 
Which is Arabic for "Let's twist again like we did last summer baby" 
Ha ha ha!   You know what I mean   Whew!   She looked up at him from off the rug, 
give him one of them sly looks, she said: 
ooooh, hehuuuu, hehuuhuuhuuuhuu, hihuuhuuhuuhuu, haahaahuuhahuuhahahuuhuuhuu 
Oooh, ooooh, Crazy, crazy cracy baby! 
('Round and around and around and around and around and around and around) 
Yeah, that's the story 'bout Ahab, the Arab 
    F                    C 
The sheik of the burnin sand 
Am         C          Am          C     F-Am-C 
Ahab, the Arab, the sheik of the burnin sand
