The Mummy Rap

It's the dawn of the mummy (The mummy rap)
They dance kind of funny (The mummy rap)
Don't do it for the money (The mummy rap)
Yes the dawn of the mummy (The mummy rap)

Ramesses the Third
We come to this horror disco, cos we love to party
Old school style wrapped head to foot, it's time to get things started
Three thousand years we have been waiting, buried in the sand
But when we found out about this thing it was time to change the plan

You see my given name is Ramesses, Ramesses the Third
I'm a mummy, yes, who can dazzle you, with my masterful use of word
I got the flow a thousand years ago, no mummy can match my style
I'll turn this party out everybody, we'll be cruising down the Nile

My temples are impressive, they stand so tall in stature
Oh don't be frightened of my rotting corpse, I have a friendly nature
Worship me, on the dance floor, get with the mummy rap
I'm glad you're here at the horror disco, no it ain't no deadly trap

All the ladies, all the ladies, all the ladies in the house say Ra (Ra), say Ra (Ra)
All the fellas, all the fellas, all the fellas in the house say Giza Giza (Giza Giza), Giza Giza (Giza Giza)
Ah make some noise party people if you love our God of the dead, Anubis (Yay)

Now, I want, to introduce, the rest of the mummy team
I promise that they won't short change you, this ain't no pyramid scheme
Well next up on the mic here to tempt you all the way from Memphis
Is a beast of a mummy she's a-rapping kind of funny please meet DJ Nefertisis

DJ Nefertisis
Watch out for the curse from the mummy's tomb
Don't break that seal or get disease and doom
My name is DJ Nefertisis gonna rock your ancient world to pieces
My dynasty comes from the Valley Of The Kings, where the nile delta boys and girls dance and sing
It's a crazy place with a crazy face, yes we dance at a furious pace

There ain't no stopping no time to think, cos I gotta hang with my pal the Sphinx
Got a body that's wrapped from head to toe, everybody loves how I rock the show
Fast on the mic and the break and the floor oh my friend the Sphinx don't cry she roar
Oh I might come and get you with the royal sceptre, a stick for the mix and the get down culture

Scratch to the left, the needle is on, rock this temple til the break of dawn
Shake the pillars, statues fall, forget the other MCs I'm ahead of them all

We came a long way to be here today, we just don't care what the high priest say
It's a disco and it's where we shine, we'll horrify you each and every time
It's a home from home like our tomb at Giza, now let me introduce to you a real crowd pleaser
Up on the mic is MC Thebes, mummy supreme he's the DJ of your dreams

It's the dawn of the mummy (The mummy rap)
Yes the dawn of the mummy (The mummy rap)

MC Thebes
Stop, oh yeah, let your bandaged body rock
Move it side to side, stretch up reach down
Though I am the best dancer with the pharaoh's crown

MC Thebes is the name I go by for a thousand year old mummy I'm a pretty fly guy
Check out the gold thread sewn up in here, my bandages priceless, oh my dear, so dear

Yes, everybody says I'm the Golden Horus, forget about the verse let's cut to the chorus
Osiris, Ra, oh the gods are with me, they love this mummy rapper so please forgive me
I bust out my moves all over this place, take a stand on the sand no disco disgrace
I was the King of Cairo, the deadliest Pharaoh, now I am everybody's dancing hero

Swinging from the temple with the Amun priests
They love to party and they dig the full on beats
Bow to your lord, oh the pharaoh at large
I'm the kinda king who likes to be in charge

I got a boat on the Nile, it's a sixty foot cruiser
I won it in a dance another MC was the loser
Got a sound system that'll blow your mind
Crank up the volume what a groove you'll find

So me, Ramesses, and Nefertisis, we're three dead Pharaohs and you can't beat this
The top of our game for a thousand years from the ancient times we bring the beats to your ears

I'm like Karloff at Universal, I'm a serious mummy this ain't no rehearsal
Everybody scream, everybody shout, get down to the beat, what it's all about

It's no time to stop the rhyme but we need to go now
We drive the crowd insane with our hip hop know how
There's such a lot of love for the mummies, are you scared?
Just throw your hands in the air like you just don't care

MU, MMY, MU, MMY, MU, MMY, MU, MMY

It's the dawn of the mummy (It's the dawn of the mummy)
They dance kind of funny (They dance kind of funny)
Don't do it for the money (Don't do it for the money)
Yes the dawn of the mummy (It's the dawn of the mummy)

It's the dawn of the mummy (The mummy rap)
They dance kind of funny (The mummy rap)
Don't do it for the money (The mummy rap)
Yes the dawn of the mummy (The mummy rap)

It's the dawn of the mummy (It's the dawn of the mummy)
They dance kind of funny (They dance kind of funny)
Don't do it for the money (Don't do it for the money)
Yes the dawn of the mummy (It's the dawn of the mummy)

It's the dawn of the mummy (The mummy rap)
They dance kind of funny (The mummy rap)
Don't do it for the money (The mummy rap)
Yes the dawn of the mummy (The mummy rap)
