"Another Pyramid" is the first song from the concept album Elton John and Tim Rice's Aida. The song is sung by Sting.

Lyrics

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

Another pyramid
Build another pyrmaid
Another pyramid
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
Make another

Another pyramid
Build another pyramid
Another pyramid
Build another pyramid

Another pyramid
Build another pyramid
Another pyramid
Build another pyramid

We hate to depress the nation
But our leader has been told
He should cancel his 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

Another pyramid
Another pyramid

Another pyramid
Build another pyramid
Another pyramid
Build another pyramid

Another pyramid
Build another pyramid
Another pyramid
Build another pyramid

Another pyramid
