Friday Song Of The Day – King Tut

Steve Martin - King TutDon’t you just love it when comedians make music? King Tut is a hilarious song done by Steve Martin for SNL (Saturday Night Live). My favorite line? … He’s my favorite honky. There is also an embedded video below the lyrics for your viewing pleasure. 🙂 Click through to the site if you cannot see the video.

King Tut (King Tut)
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?
Born in Arizona,
Moved to Babylonia (King Tut).

(King Tut) Now, if I’d known
They’d line up just to see him,
I’d taken all my money
And bought me a museum. (King Tut)

Buried with a donkey (Funky Tut)
He’s my favorite honkey!
Born in Arizona,
Moved to Babylonia (King Tut)

(Tut, Tut) Dancin by the Nile, (Disco Tut, Tut)
The ladies love his style, (Boss Tut, Tut)
Rockin for a mile (Rockin Tut, Tut)
He ate a crocodile.

He gave his life for tourism.
Golden idol!
He’s an Egyptian.

Now, when I die,
Now 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, (King Tut)
Buried in his Jammies, (King Tut)
Born in Arizona, moved to Babylonia,
He was born in Arizona, got a condo made of stone-a,
King Tut!
