Now when he was a young man,

He never thought he'd see

People stand in line to see the boy king.

(King Tut) How'd you get so funky?

(Funky Tut) Did you do the monkey?

And bought me a museum. (King Tut)

Buried with a donkey (Funky Tut)

He's my favorite honky!

Born in Arizona,

Moved to Babylonia (King Tut).

(King Tut) Now, if I'd known

They'd line up just to see you,

I'd trade in all my money

Dancin' by the Nile, (Disco Tut)

The ladies love his style, (Waltzing Tut)

Rockin' for a mile (Rockin' Tut)

He ate a crocodile.

He gave his life for tourism.

Golden idol!

He's an Egyptian

They're sellin' you.

Now, when I die,

Don't think I'm a nut,

Don't want no fancy funeral,

Just one like ole king Tut. (king Tut)

He coulda won a Grammy,

Buried in his jammies,

Born in Arizona, moved to Babylonia,

He was born in Arizona, lived in a condo made of stone-a.

Christie’s has sold an Ancient Egyptian brown quartzite head of Tutankhamen as the God Amen for £4.7m (with fees) despite Egypt’s calls for its repatriation and a protest outside the auction house this evening, demanding its return.

The head, which was estimated to make in excess of £4m, is over 3,000 years old and is being sold by the German Resandro Collection of Egyptian art, of which Christie’s sold a portion in 2016 for over £3m.
