about

I created this song to teach students in grade five about the basic fundamentals of music they were required to learn, while also incorporating the components of the ancient civilization in Egypt. The students used this as a guide for their own songs, and then they wrote one themselves about their chosen civilization.

lyrics

Well Egypt has a history long long ago and the man at the top they called him Pharaoh
He lived like a king all day long and spoke with the gods so nothing would go wrong
had dynasties, kingdoms old and new
recorded in hieroglyphics for me and you
temples, tombs and pyramids were made of stone to house the spirits of the gods so they wouldn't be alone

CHORUS: Listen up listen up y'all we gotta learn about Egyptian civilization
gotta write, gotta read, gotta speak, gotta step up our communication
scribes, peasants, architects, teachers are all part of this population
if you haven't guessed y'all it takes place in the time of the Pharaoh

Oh oh oh oh in the time of the Pharaoh oh oh oh oh oh oh (2nd and 3rd chorus)

V2: Now we're familiar with King Tut because of all his riches found inside his tomb that were
buried with him
His tomb was found by a man in '22 and now he is known by folks like me and you
Cleopatra her fate we know it wasn't great her death was tragic not by magic but a choice that
she made
People will say that her day wasn't grey 'cause she was powerful in different kinds of ways

Bridge: Listen up! Listen up! You see
All part of our history
Where we came from where we're going to just something we have to do
You might wonder how it's relevant
To your life and to all your friends
But it's important to know where we're all going where it came from and how it's all showin' so
Keep on walkin keep on walkin from here
I hope by now it's a bit more clear where we learned to teach, build even heal
C'mon take it from here.....



CHORUS

Outro: Listen up listen up y'all we gotta learn about egyptian civilization gotta write gotta read
gotta speak gotta step up our communication
scribes peasants architects teachers are all part of this population if you haven't guessed y'all it takes place in the time of the Pharaoh Oh oh oh in the time of the Pharaoh oh oh oh oh oh.....
