lyrics to King Tut / Steve Martin

Steve Martin & The Toot Uncommons
King Tut

Now when he was a young man he never thought he'd see (King Tut)
People stand in line to see the boy king (King Tut)
How'd you get so funky (funky Tut)
Then you'd do the monkey
(Born in Arizona moved to Babylonia King Tut)
Now if I'd known the line would form to see him (King Tut)
I'd take up all my money and buy me a museum (King Tut)
Buried with a donkey (funky Tut)
He's my favorite honky
(Born in Arizona moved to Babylonia King Tut)
Dancing by the Nile
Ladies loved the style (waltzing Tut)
Rocking for a mile (walking Tut)
He ate a crockodile
He gave his life for tourism
Golden idol
He's an Egyptian!
They're selling you
Now when I die now don't think I'm a nut
Don't want no fancy funeral just one like old King Tut (King Tut)
He coulda won a grammy (King Tut)
Buried in his jammies
(Born in Arizona moved to Babylonia
Born in Arizona got a condo made of stone-a (sic) King Tut)

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) Dancine by the Nile, (Disco Tut, Tut)
The ladies love his style, (boss Tut, Tut)
Rockine for a mile (rockine 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!

King Tut (King Tut)
Now when he was a young man,

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

SONG MEANING / BACKGROUND INFO
What does King Tut mean?

... update background information ...

Provided courtesty of songfacts.com:
-The "backup group" Martin used for this song was credited as The Toot Uncommons (Tutankhamen), but was really The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, whose multi-instrumentalist John McEuen is good friends with Steve Martin and taught him to play banjo. Martin was the opening act for the band for a few years in the mid-'70s, where he developed his act and refined his "Wild and Crazy Guy" persona, often to a hostile audience that was there to see music, not comedy.<br /><br />According to McEuen, it was on tour when Martin put his song together. He told <a href="http://countrymusicpride.com" target="_blank" target="_blank">Country Music Pride</a>: "When we did 'King Tut,' he came to the theatre we were playing in L.A. with this idea between the soundcheck and the show that he described to the band. 'Play this. Now have the bass go like this. Jeff, you guys go, 'Tut, Tut, King Tut.' Everybody worked on it for about an hour, we went on stage and did it, and we just blew the roof off the place. So that was fun. I would say that Steve has always been productive – making something. It’s not always good according to some sales figures. But the sales figures don’t always indicate what was good or not, and the critics often don’t know that some of it is so stellar that we’re really lucky to have him around."<br /><br />Martin is an accomplished banjo player, and McEuen produced his 2010 album, <b>The Crow</b>, which won the Grammy for Bluegrass Album of the Year.
