Anyone else a fan of Trout Fishing in America's 'Dead Egyptian Blues'? It's on my MP3 player now, and I grin every time I'm out running and it cycles round to this song.

Funny and boppy, and yet somehow poignant in spite of that:

Quote:
Oh Mister Tut they love the mask
But do they love you honey sweetheart don't ask
Where's those baby browns and that pearly smile
That smile that drove 'em wild by the early Nile
You make one terrific hieroglyphic don't you bro'
Centuries of standing sideways turned you to a pro
Those girls from Cairo who filled your heart with lust
They've all turned to dust yesterday yesterday
And those bandages didn't do that much for you
Man you're all wrapped up in them dead Egyptian blues
