Sheik Of Araby

This song is by Champion Jack Dupree.

The Sheik, Sheik of Araby
Your love belongs to me
At night, at night when you're asleep
Into your room I will creep

When you're laying down fast asleep
And then I make my midnight creep
And everything will be all right
You will beg me to stay all night

I'm the Sheik of Araby
Yes, your love belongs to me
When my mother-in-law walk in the room
And her legs looking just like a broom

And she see me laying in bed
And this is what my mother-in-law said

"Son what is that you got hanging on you
Like a baseball bat?"
Yeah, no pants on
I say, help, I'm the Sheik of Araby

And she said, turn out the light
I'll make everything all right
And this is what my mother-in-law said
"Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh"

I say, I say, "What's the matter mother-in-law?"
She say, "Ah, ooh"

And then she looked, looked me in my eye
And then she began to cry
And I said, "Mother-in-law, get in the groove"
And then I started up and down

And she
And she said, "Take it easy old breezy willy
What you doin'?", I said "I don't know
I don't know what I'm doin' but I'm doin' something"
