Here's Spike Jones's lyrics to the Shriek of Agony:
(spoken, with yiddish accent)

(Oh I'm the) Sheik of Araby and all the women worship me.
You should see them follow me around...not bad! Even
Wives of all the other sheiks they beg to kiss my rosy cheeks.
That ain't bad,  in fact it's good I've found. I'm a cad.
When I'm laying down to sleep, I'm counting girls instead of sheep
>From my harem, I can't scare 'em out.  Why should I?
The beauties of all races, and some have pretty faces.
I'm the sheik who knows what love is all about.

Didn't Jack Teagarden do one? I know he does an intro, but can't recall if
he had different lyrics.

--Sheik of DC
