about

The Mummy, Ocean's song homage to the great lover of the Valley of the Kings, ancient Egypt's romantic monster, Imhotep, priest so devoted to his forbidden paramour, Princess Ankh-es-en-amon, that his will kept his body alive through three millenia until he could escape his bonds and track the current incarnation of the lady whose love he craved. A light-hearted song, exotica abounds atop the danceable rhythms as Ocean's lyrical vocals swell aloft in haunting tones.

lyrics

The Mummy
by Ocean, c. 2013

The Mummy
steps out
from his tomb

to follow her
to his doom

no matter what
she'll evade him not

when his passion looms


Ankh-es-en-amon!
leave him not

wait for him

you're all he's got

his heart is full
his passion ripe
just unwrap him
- he's so hot!

hot for you
he'll never stop
following
pursuing

wooing

Ankh-es-en-amon

betrayer,
princess, girl
you'll never find love
like this
in the world!

or in the next
Osiris rules
he stays with Isis too!


don't try tto escape
your chosen fate
you gave him your hand

now give him your soul

and go quietly
to the other world

in love
