lyrics

We're the queens of the Nile
We step out in style

While we were out walking in old Pharaoh's garden, he said 'let's slip under the tree'
He cried 'Nefertiti, my lovely, my sweetie, your face makes me weak in the knees'
Sun was diving, the moon slowly rising, the bullrushes swayed in the breeze
We climbed to the treetops, she said, 'not now Cheops, what would the Sphinx think of me?'

We're the queens of the Nile
We step out in style

Well Caesar arrived at the doorsteps of Egypt, he had women on his mind
He tried to get friendly with Queen Cleopatra, but Cleo politely declined
She said 'hands off, Julie, you just want to rule me, you came here because of my name..'
'Tell me the truth, is that a sword in your pocket, or are you just happy you came?'

We're the queens of the Nile
We step out in style

King Tut's wife, Adelpha, was fanning herself with some branches that fell from the trees
She paused in her palmin to say, 'Tut, I'm common, there's lots of girls lovelier than me'
Tut was no dummy, he knew lots of mummies who never were lovely as she
He said to his dear wife, 'perhaps in the next life there's faces you'd rather not be'

We're the queens of the Nile
We step out in style
