Steve Martin – King Tut lyrics

(King Tut)
(King Tut)
Now when he was a young man,
He never thought he'd see
(King Tut)
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 him,
(King Tut)
I'd taken 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)

(Tut, Tut)
Dancin' by the Nile,
(Disco Tut, Tut)
The ladies love his style,
(Boss Tut, Tut)
Rockin' for a mile
(Rockin' Tut, Tut)
He ate a crocodile.

He gave his life for tourism.
Golden idol!
He's an Egyptian.

They're selling you!

Now, when I die,
Now don't think I'm a nut,
(King Tut)
Don't want no fancy funeral,
Just one like ole king Tut.
(King Tut)
He coulda won a Grammy,
(King Tut)
Buried in his Jammies,
(King Tut)
Born in Arizona, moved to Babylonia,
He was born in Arizona, got a condo made of stone-a,
(King Tut)

    It is neither pathetic nor meaningless. The song was written and performed as a way to point out as well as cash in on the sensationalism surrounding the recent tours of Pharaoh Tutankhamun's exhibit at the time. As is the way with many novelty songs, however, the events it lampoons are dated and the intention is lost. Today's listener doesn't get what the song is supposed to be about, except that it's goofy.
