No. 8 - Entrance and Chorus - "King Pharaoh's Guard."


Basses: We are King Pharaoh's Guard,
Custodians of his Cats;
We dust the Sphinx and Pyramids,
And brush the Royal hats.
Tenors: We are King Pharaoh's Guard,
We guard his kingly honour.
If he requires a Royal wife,
All: We choose a Prima Donna.

We are King Pharaoh's Guard
For better or for worse;
We follow him where'er he goes,
And keep his privy purse.
And all who do our will offend,
They find their prospects marred.
It's all very well to be a King,
But it's better to be his Guard.
