The Lyrics

Dedictacated to Sabah IV Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, current Emir of Kuwait. I prefer to call him "Jabbie." His predecessor, Saad I Al-Abdullah Al-Salim Al-Sabah, lasted 9 days as Emir before he was deposed last January Jabbie gets a stipend of $171 million a year.
I'm Emir of Kuwait, I am
Emir of Kuwait I am, I am
I'm not married. I'm a little bit bored
I own 40 cars you can't afford

And all my friends rule an Emirate
From southern Qatar to Afghanistan
I'm a rich old man
You love to hate
Emir of Kuwait I am

Second verse, same as first!

I'm Emir of Kuwait, I am
Emir of Kuwait I am, I am
Call me Jabbie, I'm a Kuwaiti lord
I like sailing in my private Fjord

And all my friends rule an Emirate (Emirate!)
They're fighting for another inch of land (more sand!)
I'll cut off your hand
If I'm irate
Emir of Kuwait I am I am
Emir of Kuwait I am
Parody by Mason "Sheikh yer' booty" Resnick

Really clever, great pacing, and your p.s. nick was cute... They have fjords in the Persian Gulf?... Five oil wells.

So can all the adults, women included, of Kuwait vote yet? After all, Daddy Bush told us in March '91 that "Kuwait is liberated." Anyway, I gave you a five as a royal prerogative, even though "Sheik Yerbouti" was the title of a Frank Zappa album almost 30 years ago.

Paul--thanks for your "disposition". Alvin--thanks. Tommy, I'm not 100% sure about the Persian Gulf, but I do know they have fjords on the east coast of the Sinai peninsula. I've seen 'em. Michael, thanks--I'd forgotten about that Zappa album!
