King Tut
Steve Martin and The Toot Uncommons Lyrics


King Tut (King Tut)
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 honky!
Born in Arizona,
Moved to Babylonia (King Tut)
Dancin' by the Nile, (Disco Tut)
The ladies love his style, (Waltzing Tut)
Rockin' for a mile (Rockin' Tut)
He ate 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

Garrett stoneburner

Pun intended or?

William Pelicanson

"He gave his life for tourism"

Historically inaccurate, comedically immaculate.

Jason Parker

I think it’s supposed to be a line like, “All that hard work for nothing”. So I think it’s accurate.
1:33 hehe, Disco Tut

CoolDoge

I'm Your Mom Now

@punklover99 it's exactly that deep!

@Susan Urban This is how we learn about our history.

The dead are long, long, long gone

I'm sure they wouldn't mind us knowing them, however small way we can

These actions are a small piece of a people's immortality

Tin Watchman

@Susan Urban If they don't, the scavengers and grave robbers will.

The way he's dancing makes me laugh more then anything else, his stupid grin with arms pumping to the side... leaned back... love it
