«Tutankhamun»
(To the tune of «Moves Like Jagger» by Maroon 5)

by Mr. Nicky

Amon-Re, oh!

In North Africa, head to Cairo
the fertile delta of the Nile-
that’s where our families had their dynasties, now we’re all mummies

Uniting the Lower and Upper Egyptians
we ruled government and led our religion
and for our spirits they built pyramids, we’re polytheists

Read the hieroglyphs

(Ankh) Give me a double crown and I’ll rule you (Ankh)
been king since I was 9 years old dude
yeah I’m Tutankhamun, I’m Pharaoh Tutankhamun, I’m Pharaoh Tutankhamun

(Ankh) Don’t let Akhenaton control you (Ankh)
just pray to the the gods that you’re used to
yes I’m Tutankhamun, I’m Pharaoh Tutankhamun, I’m Pharaoh Tutankhamun

Grow some big crops from the Nile’s silt
get specialized jobs, trade for profit
build technology, learn geometry, and try surgery

Oh, make a calendar, get a scribe, yes
make him write it down on papyrus
’cause flooding water, comes in the summer, without it we’re cursed

O yeah yeah, ask my vizier

(Ankh) My priests put the gods in a good mood (Ankh)
my red land is black ’cause I told you
that I’m Tutankhamun, I’m Pharaoh Tutankhamun, I’m Pharaoh Tutankhamun

(Ankh) I don’t build in Giza like Khufu (Ankh)
My sweet afterlife’s in my own tomb
’cause I’m Tutankhamun, I’m Pharaoh Tutankhamun, I’m Pharaoh Tutankhamun

The best Pharoah is the great Ramses
The Hittites’ foe though we made a peace treaty
I built a stable kingdom, I ruled for decades then some
who’s this King Tut bum?

Was he a woman or slave?
He has my respect
he can row my boat of reeds and spin my linens out of flax
and he can clean my jewelry, and whenever I’m thirsty
he’ll build shadufs for me
hey hey hey hey

In the name of Isis

(Ankh) Like Queen Hatshepsut I’ll export you (Ankh)
I’ll trade you to Punt and I’ll show you
that I’m Tutankhamun, I’m Pharaoh Tutankhamun, I’m Pharaoh Tutankhamun

(Ankh) I’ll invade your world like the Hyksos (Ankh)
I’ll destroy your history like Thutmose
’cause I’m Tutankhamun, I’m Pharaoh Tutankhamun, I’m Pharaoh Tutankhamun
