AMAZING EGYPTIANS SONG
Amazing Egyptians, exciting Egyptians (x2)
Ancient inscriptions, dramatic depictions
From ages before us now here comes the chorus,
To be amid the pyramids, to ride in style down the nile,
having a rare old time with the pharaoh,
worshipping cats cows jackals and crocodiles,
Hes lookin atcha Cleopatra Tutankhamen
come and take me back in time.
Known as a nation for mummification
they wrote on papyrus and how they inspire us.
To be amid the pyramids …
Who was the nicest osiris or isis
anubis or horus now back to the chorus
