There's a rich Maharajah of Magador 
Who had ten thousand camels and maybe more 
He had rubies and pearls, and the loveliest girls 
But he didn't know how to do the rumba. 
He could afford..... a big reward 
So to his people one day he said: 
Ah ha hahahahahahahahahahah 
Which means... 
Take my rubies and take my pearls 
Take my camels and take my girls 
Rumba lessons are wanted for 
The rich Maharajah of Magador. 
Ah hahahahahahahahah 
So a slick little chick answered, "That's for me" 
To the ad he had placed in Variety 
When she saw his expanse, she could tell at a glance 
That he'd never learn how to do the rumba. 
He had his wealth, he had his health 
So he looked in her eyes and said: 
Ah hahahahahahahahahha 
Take my rubies and take my pearls 
Take my camels, I'll keep my girls 
From now on you'll be working for 
The rich Maharajah of Magador. 
Ah hahahahahahahaha 
He was anxious to learn, so she taught him right 
But she taught him the thrill of a moonlight night. 
He discovered the bliss of a half promised kiss 
But he never learned how to do the rumba. 
And on the day...she went away 
You could hear all the people say: 
She took his rubies and took his pearls 
Took his camels and all his girls 
Took his money and what is more 
She made the rich Maharajah the poor Maharajah of Magador. 
Ah hahahahahahahah
