Hello all

Parody versions of Sheik of Araby are probably as old as the piece itself.

An early 1940s oddity is the Nazi propaganda version by "Charlie" (Karl
Schwedler) which is introduced as "Mr Churchill's latest song" and starts:

"I'm afraid of Germany,
her planes are beating me"

Strange times
