​Another Pyramid

This song is by Sting and appears on the compilation Elton John and Tim Rice's Aida (1999).

Original video
Sad to say our mighty ruler
Is not really in the pink
Hopes could not be minuscular
That he'll come back from the brink
Not to beat around the bush he
Looks like heading for his box
At the risk of seeming pushy
We must plan for future shocks
According to the Hawk God Horus
Our most regal invalid
Is not that much longer for us
Build another pyramid!

Though all doctors and physicians
Have been summoned to his bed
It will soon be top morticians
We'll be calling for instead
With each wheeze the nation's humming
Egypt shakes with every cough
No two ways about what's coming
No discussion - bets are off
Soon our monarch will have filled a
Tomb just like his fathers did
Summon Egypt's greatest builder
Re: another pyramid

We hate to depress the nation
But our leader has been told
He should scrub his next vacation
Even put tonight on hold
This is where his loyal priesthood
Has the chance to do him proud
Holy leaders at the least should
See him happy to his shroud

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