Amazing Egyptians, exciting Egyptians (x2) color-poster-sistrum
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
