[F#m]Pharaoh he sits in his tower of [E]steel
[F#m]The dogs of money all [C#m]at his heel
[F#m]Magicians cry, Oh Truth! Oh [E]Real!
[D]We're all [C#m]working for the [E]Pha[F#m]raoh
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]Tell me, brother, don't you [A]under[Bsus4]stand
[D]We're all [C#m]working for the [E]Pha[F#m]raoh
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
