Assembly Songs

Cleopatra
I am a leader and a lady and a Queen.
I’m Cleopatra, such a queen never been seen.
I am a Pharaoh yet they’re all meant to be guys
But I don’t care, oh I just wear a beard disguise.

My mum and dad were Pharaohs, 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, Pharaoh 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. (Boohoo!) So now I rule alone.

Wa wa wa wa wa! (All hail Lady Cleo.)
Wa wa wa la la! (Coolest Pharaoh 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.
Vipers too 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 crown’d King.
My bro said ‘no’, I said ‘oh’, and I murder’d him.

’Cos I am Cleopatra, Egypt’s royalty,
The ruling Pharaoh, don’t you dareo mess with me.
My pokerface smiles only when I see,
A man that takes my fancy, like oh! Mark Antony!

Wa wa wa wa wa! (Another Roman leader)
Wa wa wa la la! (No Egyptian crowd pleaser!)

Ra, ra Cleopatra. Finally I’d met my matcha.
Ra, ra PatraCleo. Ends in death for him and meo.
My life was a drama I was one kooky mama.
Wa wa wa, you know. Today I’d be a fav’rite of the Paparazzo!

Tutenkhamun
Many years ago, in the land of the Pharaohs,
A young boy lived, not yet fully grown.
Many years ago, Egypt needed a ruler,
And Tutankhamun ascended the throne.
Tutankhamun, the nine-year-old king,
Tutankhamun, what will the future bring?

Many years ago in the land of the Pharaohs, the young king said:
‘Who will be my Queen?’
Many years ago, he chose Ankhesenamun,
The bride to be was only thirteen!
Tutankhamun, the nine-year-old king,
Tutankhamun, what will the future bring?

Now, for ten years he reigned over Egypt,
But the boy-king was frail, and he died.
He was buried, along with his treasure.
More than three thousand passed,
The tomb was forgotten,
With the secrets of the Pharaoh inside …

In nineteen-twenty-two, Carter made a discov’ry:
King Tut’s tomb, buried in the sand.
Suddenly the world knew his face and his name:
The most famous Pharaoh in all of the land!
Tutankhamun, the nine-year-old king,
Tutankhamun, what will the future bring?
Tutankhamun, the nine-year-old king,
Tutankhamun, what will the future bring?

The Mummy Song
Pull out the eyes, rip out the tummy.
Wrap it in cloth and you’ve got a mummy.
Put it in jars and do the Mummy Rag.

Cover with salt to keep it fresh.
Pack it with cloth and put on a mask.
Put in a coffin and do the Mummy Rag.

You’re there forever.
But you’ve been clever.
You’ve taken everything you will need for life thereafter.

Pack up your gold.
Fix up some food.
When you are judged, just hope you’ve been good.
Plenty of time to do the Mummy Rag.

Plenty of time to do the Mummy Rag.
Mummy!

Walk Like an Egyptian
Located in North Africa
Over 5000 years ago
Ancient Egypt (oh whey oh)
By 5O

The Egyptians settled by the Nile
They like the soil, very fertile
Growing crops (oh whey oh)
But not when the river floods.

Egyptians with fishing nets say
Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh
Walk like an Egyptian

Tutenkhamun was just nine
When he became a Pharaoh
His tomb was (oh whey oh)
The first to be discovered

Explorers found in his tomb
All of his jewels and gold
And some food (oh whey oh)
Mouldy and very old

Mummies with bandages say
Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh
Walk like an Egyptian

When the famous Pharaohs died
They took out their insides
Brain pulled out (oh whey oh)
with a hook straight through your nose.

Put in a sarcophagus
And placed inside a pyramid
Tombs seen from space (oh whey oh)
Built to look like a sun ray

All the old paintings on the tombs
They’re called hieroglyphics don’t you know
Written with ink (oh whey oh)
Made from soot and water
​
Egyptians building tombs say
Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh
Walk like an Egyptian
Walk like an Egyptian
