I never really listened to the lyrics to that song. Until today I had no idea they were saying "Sharia don't like it"

I always thought they were saying "Sherry don't like it." I haven't listened to that song in a long time.

yeah. it's a song bashing fundamentalism, both Jewish and Islamic, centered on the idea that fundamentalism is used to oppress the masses while their leaders live a western lifestyle in secrete and the wealth of their people (oil profit) squandered. Take note of the armadillo in the video (relation to Texas).

FYI, The lyric is "sharif", not "sharia".

Now the king told the boogie men

You have to let that raga drop

The oil down the desert way

Has been shaken to the top

The sheik, he drove his Cadillac

He went a-cruising down the ville

The muezzin was a-standing

On the radiator grille

The sharif don't like it

Rocking the Casbah, rock the Casbah

The sharif don't like it

Rocking the Casbah, rock the Casbah
