Text for pg. 1

              I've studied things Egyptic
Those writings weird and cryptic
Upon the tombs that dot Sahara's sands
I've solved each strange inscription
Left by each wise Egyptian
And hold the mystic secret in my hands
The Irish were Egyptians long ago
Just read between the lines and you will know

Chorus
It must have been the Irish who built the Pyramids
For no one else could carry up the bricks
It must have been a Doyle who dug the river Nile
For no one but an Irishman would fight a crocodile
I think these Micks were Turks Mohammedans and Ghurks
They speak of "Irish Turkey" till today
Cleopatra was a colleen who came from Connemara
She lost her nationality while roaming in Sahara
So all the Hooligans and all the Dooligans
Must have been Egyptians long ago
It must have been the Irish who built the Pyramids
For no one else could carry up the bricks
It must have been a Doyle who dug the river Nile
For no one but an Irishman would fight a crocodile
Now ev'ry Houlihan once drove a caravan
I'll say the same for ev'ry Mac and O
And when Moses went to Egypt and saw those Irish faces
He took the name O'Callahan and changed it to Oasis
So all the Hooligans and all the Dooligans
Must have been Egyptians long ago
