Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Now all join hands and circle left beneath the desert moon
You circle to the left and walk around the old sand dune
Walk all around your corner, see saw the girl you know
Then allemande left with your left hand
And a right & left grand you're gonna go
And when the stars will shine above
You're gonna dosado and promenade your love
Won't you swing at home with me?
Cause I'm the Sheik of Araby


FIGURE (#1 & #2)    Mainstream, R-H lady progression

All four ladies chain across and couples 1 & 3
Square thru inside the ring, go four hands round for me
And with the outside two you'll dosado (ready with a right)
Swing thru and then the sheiks (Boys) will trade around tonight
Then turn thru and allemande left, new corners one and all
You dosado new partners and you promenade the hall
*Your love belongs to me
Cause I'm the Sheik of Araby


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Into your tent I'll creep, you'll see
Cause I'm the Sheik of Araby


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Now all join hands and circle left go walking round the world
You circle to the left around with all those harem girls
Walk all around your corner, see saw the girl you know
Then allemande left with your left hand
And a right & left grand you're gonna go
And when the stars will shine above
You're gonna dosado and promenade your love
Won't you guard my harem for me?
Cause I'm the Sheik of Araby


FIGURE (#3 & #4)    Mainstream, R-H lady progression

All four ladies chain across and couples 2 & 4
Square thru inside the ring, go four hands round the floor
And with the outside two you'll dosado (ready with a right)
Swing thru and then the sheiks (Boys) will trade around tonight
Then turn thru and allemande left, new corners one and all
You dosado new partners and you promenade the hall
**Two humps on a camel for me
Cause I'm the Sheik of Araby


ALTERNATE LYRICS

**Won't you be my desert flea?
Cause I'm the Sheik of Araby


CLOSER    Basic

Now all join hands and circle left around those desert places
You circle to the left until you're home at your oasis
Walk all around your corner, see saw the girl you know
Then allemande left with your left hand
And a right & left grand you're gonna go
And when the stars will shine above
You're gonna dosado and promenade your love
You'll rule this square with me
Cause I'm the Sheik of Squaraby

The Sheik Of Araby
 
 

Over the desert wild and free
Rides the bold Sheik of Araby
His Arab band at his command
Follows his love's caravan
Under the shadow of the palms
He sings to call her to his arms

I'm the Sheik of Araby,
Your love belongs to me.
At night when you're asleep,
Into your tent I'll creep.
The stars that shine above
Will light our way to love.
You'll rule this land with me,
The Sheik of Araby.

While the stars are fading in the dawn
Over the desert they'll be gone
His captured bride close by his side
Swift as the wind they will ride
Proudly he scorns her smile or tear
Soon he will conquer love by fear.

I'm the Sheik of Araby,
Your love belongs to me.
At night when you're asleep,
Into your tent I'll creep.
The stars that shine above
Will light our way to love.
You'll rule this land with me,
The Sheik of Araby.

I'm the Sheik of Araby,

I'm the Sheik of Araby.

Composed by Ted Snyder.
Lyrics by Harry B. Smith and Francis Wheeler.
Recorded by Merle Travis; The Beatles; Lou Monte.
