I can't get a decently priced round the world ticket which allows me a stop in Cairo.

this might not be common knowledge, but ancient egyptians were capable of time travel. it's true! in fact, on one infamous trip into the future a pair of ancient egyptian explorers travelled to 1968, where they met jimmy page and accidentally gave him an idea for a band name when they haplessly tried to suggest "get a haircut" in their native language. which, roughly translated into their dialect, sounds a lot like "led zeppelin."

They say it's a big mystery how the pyramids were ever built. I think how it worked is the pharaoh told some guy he'd give him $10 if he brought in ten friends, and they'd each get $10 for bringing in ten friends, and so on and so forth. And then when they all showed up, he enslaved them and made them build his pyramid.

Walk like an Egyptian

All the old paintings on the tombs
They do the sand dance don't you know
If they move too quick (oh whey oh)
They're falling down like a domino

All the bazaar men by the Nile
They got the money on a bet
Gold crocodiles (oh whey oh)
They snap their teeth on your cigarette

Foreign types with the hookah pipes say
Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh
Walk like an Egyptian

Blonde waitresses take their trays
They spin around and they cross the floor
They've got the moves (oh whey oh)
You drop your drink then they bring you more

All the school kids so sick of books
They like the punk and the metal band
When the buzzer rings (oh whey oh)
They're walking like an Egyptian

All the kids in the marketplace say
Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh
Walk like an Egyptian

Slide your feet up the street bend your back
Shift your arm then you pull it back
Life is hard you know (oh whey oh)
So strike a pose on a Cadillac

If you want to find all the cops
They're hanging out in the donut shop
They sing and dance (oh whey oh)
Spin the clubs cruise down the block

All the Japanese with their yen
The party boys call the Kremlin
And the Chinese know (oh whey oh)
They walk the line like Egyptian

All the cops in the donut shop say
Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh
Walk like an Egyptian
Walk like an Egyptian

A little boy named Presley
found a secret out this year
that he was once a Pharaoh
when Egyptians ruled the world
and now some sorcerer named Scarab
tries to get him day and night
but Presley has four guardians
to protect his very life.

He has the Mummies.
From 1525 B.C.
He has the Mummies.
Protection for the new Rapses.
He has the Mummies.
They're hanging by the 'Frisco Bay.
He has the Mummies.
Protectors of the world today.

So Mu-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh
Uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh

He has the Mummies.
From 1525 B.C.
He has the Mummies.
Protection for the Pharaoh teen.
He has the Mummies.
They're hanging by the Western Gate.
He has the Mummies.
They're going to save the world today.
The Egyptian way.
They're Mummies Alive!

did you know..

Ancient Egyptians were huge gamblers. The *owner of the Luxor is one of the few people who knew this fact. He has paid homage to those high rollin' Egyptians of old with an exact replica of one of their more popular gambling establishments.




*he got his info and design from the time travlers from Auntie's post..they took some awesome pictures.
