John Hickok - Another Pyramid lyrics

Zoser
While you've been away cavorting
Matters here have moved apace
Now I need you home supporting
All the plans I've put in place

First of all this means your wedding
You'll recall your future bride
For the way that Pharaoh's heading
Time's no longer on our side

According to the hawk god, Horus
Our most regal invalid
Is not that much longer 'fore us
Build another pyramid

There are many who'll be tearful
As our leader fades away
But our architects are cheerful
And each dog must have its day

If our country is to flourish
Then my son must take the lead
Be our inspiration, nourish
All our hopes our dreams our creed

Soon our monarch will have filled a tomb
Just like his fathers did
Summon Egypt's greatest builders
Re: another pyramid
(Build it, build it, another pyramid)

There will be a time for mourning
But for now put plans on hold (Hold)
For I give the nation warning
That before the corpse is cold (Cold)

We'll extend fair Egypt's powers
Egypt's glory, strength and style
We shall have our finest hour
Far beyond the mighty Nile

He must have a vault that's grand by
Any standards, floor to lid
Put five thousand slaves on stand by
Build another pyramid

Ministers
Build it, build it
Build it, build it
Build it

Zoser
He must have a vault that's grand by
Any standards, floor to lid
Put five thousand slaves on stand by
Build another pyramid!
