Stephen DeRosa: Old King Tut

Three thousand years ago, King Tutty reigned you know,
He must have travelled greatly in his time.
For in his tomb out there, was gold and silver ware,
From big hotels of every land and clime.

While going through his royal robes they found up in his sleeve,
The first fig leaf that Adam gave to Eve.

In old King Tut-Tut-Tut-enkhamen’s day,
Beneath the tropic skies King Tut-Tut-Tut was very wise,
Now old King Tut-Tut-Tut was always gay,
Cleopatra she sat upon his knee, Pat! that’s where she sat.

The girls would dance for him and every move a treat,
They’d move and move and move but never move their feet.

A thousand girls would dance each day,
With lots of hip-hip-hip-hooray,
In old King Tut-Tut-Tut-Tut-Tut-Tut, King Tutty’s Day.

Three thousand years ago, In history we know,
King Tutenkhamen ruled a mighty land.

He ruled for many years, ‘Mid laughter, song and tears,
He made a record that will always stand.

They opened up his tomb the other day and jumped with glee,
They learned a lot of ancient history.
