Lyrics
the almond eyes of the sphinx she spies
timeless aristocrats of the Nile
breezes blow soft the sand is warm
slowly a thousand voices moan
white rock warms as it sets forever
white rock warms as it sets forever
together they work all through the day
as the kings lay asleep in cool and shade
a trail of men to the horizon
heaving the rocks along behind them

the almond eyes of the sphinx she spies

years of toil
men grew old
all their days
they build a grave
the sun it burns
sons take their place
in glory kings all rise again
the almond eyes of the sphinx she spies
timeless aristocrats of the Nile
breezes blow soft the sand is warm
slowly a thousand voices moan
white rock warms as it sets forever
white rock warms as it sets forever

years of toil
men grew old
all their days
they build a grave
the sun it burns
sons take their place
in glory kings all rise again
together they work all through the day
as the kings lay asleep in cool and shade
a trail of men to the horizon
heaving the rocks along behind them

in the valley of the kings
in the valley of the kings
lay undisturbed
in their transition from earth
