F#m                             E
Pharaoh he sits in his tower of steel
F#m                   C#m
The dogs of money all at his heel
F#m                         E
Magicians cry, Oh Truth! Oh Real!
D         C#m             E  F#m
We're all working for the Pharaoh
 
 
A thousand eyes, a thousand ears
He feeds us all, he feeds our fears
Don't stir in your sleep tonight, my dears
We're all working for the Pharaoh
 
Bridge
Bsus4
Egypt Land, Egypt Land
We're all living in Egypt land
F#m                         A    Bsus4
Tell me, brother, don't you understand
D         C#m             E  F#m
We're all working for the Pharaoh
 
 
Hidden from the eye of chance
The men of shadow dance a dance
And we're all struck into a trance
We're all working for the Pharaoh
 
Idols rise into the sky
Pyramids soar, Sphinxes lie
Head of dog, Osiris eye
We're all working for the Pharaoh
 
Bridge
 
I dig a ditch, I shape a stone
Another battlement for his throne
Another day on earth is flown
We're all working for the Pharaoh
 
Call it England, call it Spain
Egypt rules with the whip and chain
Moses free my people again!
We're all working for the Pharaoh
 
Bridge
 
Pharaoh he sits in his tower of steel
Around his feet the princes kneel
Far beneath we shoulder the wheel
We're all working for the Pharaoh
