King Tut Steve Martin (#17 in 1978)

Intro: Egyptian intro (E, F#, G, F#, E in fourths/octaves)
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 funky?
(funky Tut) Did you do the monkey?
Born in Arizona,
Moved to Babylonia (king Tut).
(king Tut) Now, if I’d known, they’d line up just to see you,
I’d trade in all my money and bought me a museum. (king Tut)
Buried with a donkey (funky Tut)
He’s my favorite honkey!
Born in Arizona, Moved to Babylonia (king Tut)
Dance section
Dancin’ by the Nile, (Disco Tut)
The ladies love his style, (waltzing Tut)
Rockin’ for a mile (rockin’ Tut)
He ate like a crocodile.
He gave his life for tourism.
Golden idol!
He’s an Egyptian
They’re sellin’ you.
Now, when I die, don’t think I’m a nut,
Don’t want no fancy funeral, just one like ole king Tut. (king Tut)
He coulda won a Grammy, buried in his Jammies,
Born in Arizona, moved to Babylonia,
He was born in Arizona, lived in a condo made of stone-a,
King Tut!
