[Bb7] [A] [Dm]

[VERSE]
[Dm]Oh Mister Tut what good's it [A7]do
They love your chair but [A7]nobody cares for [Dm]you [Dm] [Ddim7] [A7]
E[Dm]gyptian nights were never [A7]colder
And all your friends are thousands of years [Dm]older [Dm/C#] [Dm/C] [Dm/B] [D]
[D]Whatever [D7]happened to that [Gm]gang down by the Sphinx
[C]Seems they're only forty winks a[F]way [Faug] [Gm]
[Gm]Those girls from Cairo with their [Dm]belly button jewels
[A7]Made you play the [Dm]fool yesterday yester[A7]day
And [Dm]now you keep in [Ddim]shape with Elmer's [A7]glue
Cause you're all wrapped up in them dead Egyptian [Dm]blues

[VERSE]
[Dm]Oh Mister Tut, they love the [A7]mask
But do they love you? [A7]Honey, sweetheart, [Dm]don't ask [Dm] [Ddim7] [A7]
[Dm]Where's those baby browns and that pearly [A7]smile?
That smile that drove 'em wild by the early [Dm]Nile [Dm/C#] [Dm/C] [Dm/B] [D]
[D]You make one ter[D7]rific hiero[Gm]glyphic, don't you bro
[C]Centuries of standing sideways [F]turned you to a [Faug]pro [Gm]
[Gm]Those girls from Cairo who [Dm]filled your heart with lust
[A7]They've all turned to [Dm]dust, yesterday, yester[A7]day
(And those) [Dm]bandages don't [Ddim]do that much for [A7]you
Cause you're all wrapped up in them dead Egyptian [Dm]blues

[INSTRUMENTAL]
[Dm] [Bb7/D] [A]
[Dm] [Bb7/D] [A]

[VERSE]
[Dm]Oh Mister Tut, they dig the [A7]tomb, yeah
All that gold leaf brightens up a [Dm]room [Ddim7] [A7]
But what's the [Dm]diff, when you're stiff, what riff they're play[A7]ing
When your ears have spent five thousand years de[Dm]cayin[Dm/C#]g? [Dm/C] [Dm/B] [D]
[D]What does it [D7]matter what pos[Gm]sessions you may boast?
[C]When you're just a ghost it's only [F]jive, [Faug]clive
[Gm]Your sarcophagus is glowing but your e[Dm]sophagus is showing
Who [A7]cares how rich you [Dm]are love when you look like Boris [A7]Karloff
Call [Dm]Nautilus, they might [Ddim]even refund your [A7]due
Cause you're all wrapped up in them dead Egyptian [Dm]blues

[INSTRUMENTAL]
[Dm] [A7] [Dm] [A7] [Dm] [A7] [Dm] [Dm/C#] [Dm/C] [Dm/B] [D]

[Dm] [Ddim] [A7] [Dm]

[VERSE]
[Dm]Oh Mister Tut, you wait and [A7]see
Another few thousand years they're gonna dig up [Dm]me
And I'll have all my little treasures near at [A7]hand
A CD of Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club [Dm]Band [Dm/C#] [Dm/C] [Dm/B] [D]
[D]A little dried out [D7]Maui wowee [Gm]crumbled in a bong
A l[C]etter from my honey saying [F]love you kid, so long
Some [Gm]peanut butter sandwiches that have [Dm]long returned to sand
[A7]Not much gold or silver, but [Dm]Tut, I think you'll under[A7]stand
That [Dm]in my way [Ddim]I'll be just like [A7]you
All wrapped up in them dead Egyptian [Dm]blues

[OUTRO]
[Dm/A]All wrapped up [Dm/A] [A]
[Dm/A]All wrapped up [Dm/A] [A]
[Dm/A]All wrapped up in them [A7]dead Egyptian [Bdim7]blues...
