Chorus: King Tut, King Tut
Verse: Now when he was a young man, He never thought he’d see
People stand in line to see the boy king.
King Tut
How’d you get so funkey?
Funkey Tut
Did you do the monkey?
King Tut
Chorus: Born in Arizona, Moved to Babylonia,
King Tut.
Verse: Now if I’d known the line I’ve just seen,
I’d taken all my money and bought me a museum,
Buried with a donkey,
Funkey Tut
He’s my favorite honkey.
Chorus: Born in Arizona, Moved to Babylonia,
King Tut.
Interlude:
Dancin’ by the Nile, the ladies love his style,
Rock to ford a mile, Rockin’ Tut
He ate a crocodile.
Gave his life for tourism. Tut, Tut. Tut,Tut.
Golden idols,
He’s an Egyptian, they’re telling you…
Verse: Now when I die, now don’t think I’m a nut,
Don’t want a fancy funeral, just want one like King Tut.
He could-a won-a Grammy, buried in his ‘jammies.
Chorus:
Born in Arizona, Moved to Babylonia,
Got a condo made-a stone-a.
King Tut.
