Ra, ra, Cleopatra!
Famous beauty coming at ya!
Ra ra, patra Cleo!
Guys all go gaga for me-o!

I am a leader
And a lady and a queen
I'm Cleopatra
Such a queen, never been seen
I am a pharoah
Yet they're-o meant to be guys
But I don't care-o
I just wear-o beard disguise

My mum and dad were pharoahs
I thought my rule's due
But both my older sisters
Thought that they should rule too

Oh dear, they both died!
I wonder who that would leave
Little me-o, pharoah Cleo?
Okay, no time to grieve!

Think that's alarming, you'd be right
But it gets worse
Married my half brother
And we ruled the universe

That bad romance
Led to an overcrowded throne
But then he died, boo-hoo
So now I rule alone

Wah, wah, wah, wah, wah
All hail lady Cleo!
Wah, wah, wah, la, la
Coolest pharoah by far!

Fashion topped my list of vices
Bathed in asses' milk and spices
Then I dressed like goddess Isis
Long, black hair in ringlets nicest
Viper's tooth for men entices
Finest linen robe, top prices!

Married another brother
He's an okay geezer
But never told
Of my love for Julius Caesar

Had Caesar's child and hoped
That he'd be crowned king
My bro said no, I said 'Oh! '
And I murdered him

'Cause I am Cleopatra
Egypt's royalty
The ruling pharoah, don't you dare-o
Mess with me!

My pokerface smiles
Only when I see
A man who takes my fancy like
Oh! Mark Antony!

Wah, wah, wah, wah, wah
Another Roman leader
Wah, wah, wah, la, la
No Egyptian crowd pleaser

Ra, ra, Cleopatra!
Finally, I'd met my matcher!
Ra, ra, patra Cleo!
Ends in death for him and me-o!

My life was a drama
I was one kooky mama!
Wah, wah, wah, you know
Today I'd be a favourite of the
Paparazzo!

    One of the best horrible histories songs - and they're all brilliant!
    I love how the writers force words to rhyme - 'pharaoh / they're-o / care-o / wear-o,' and so forth, and it works.

    Love this portrayal of cleopatra, too - not just an egyptian queen, but the original femme fatale.

    And i hate that i don't know who the actress is - she's fantastic!
