Another Pyramid lyrics

Music by elton john
Lyrics by tim rice
Eltons solo version is unreleased

Sad to say our mighty ruler
Is not really in the pink
Hopes could not be minuscular
That hell come back from the brink
Not to beat around the bush
He looks like heading for his box
At the risk of seeming pushy
We must plan for future shocks

According to the hawk God horus
Our most regal invalid
Is not that much longer for us
Build another pyramid

Build it, build it
Another pyramid
Build it, build it

Though all doctors and physicians
Have been summoned to his bed
Itll soon be top morticians
Well be calling for instead
With each wheeze the nations humming
Egypt shakes with every cough
No two ways about whats coming
No discussion, bets are off

Soon our monarch will have filled the tomb
Just like his fathers did
Summon egypts greatest builder
Re: another pyramid

Build it, build it
Another pyramid
Build it, build it

We hate to depress the nation
But our leader has been told
He should scrub his next vacation
Even put tonight on hold
This is where his loyal priesthood
Has the chance to do him proud
Holy leaders at the least should
See him happy to his shroud

He must have a vault thats grand by
Any standards floor to lid
Put five thousand slaves on standby
Build another pyramid
