Horrible Histories – Cleopatra lyrics

Guys all go gaga for me-o! Finally, I’d met my matcher! Wah, wah, wah, la, la
Coolest pharoah by far! [Chorus]
Wah, wah, wah, wah, wah
Another Roman leader
Wah, wah, wah, la, la
No Egyptian crowd pleaser

[Chorus]
Ra, ra, Cleopatra! I wonder who that would leave
Little me-o, pharoah Cleo? [Intro]
Ra, ra, Cleopatra! [Verse 10]
My pokerface smiles
Only when I see
A man who takes my fancy like
Oh! [Verse 4]
Think that’s alarming, you’d be right
But it gets worse
Married my half brother
And we ruled the universe

[Verse 6]
That bad romance
Led to an overcrowded throne
But then he died, boo-hoo
So now I rule alone

[Chorus]
Wah, wah, wah, wah, wah
All hail lady Cleo! Wah, wah, wah, you know
Today I’d be a favourite of the
Paparazzo! Ra ra, patra Cleo! [Verse 1]
I am a leader
And a lady and a queen
I’m Cleopatra
Such a queen, never been seen
I am a pharoah
Yet they’re-o meant to be guys
But I don’t care-o
I just wear-o beard disguise

[Verse 2]
My mum and dad were pharoahs
I thought my rule’s due
But both my older sisters
Thought that they should rule too

[Verse 3]
Oh dear, they both died! [Verse 7]
Fashion topped my list of vices
Bathed in asses’ milk and spices
Then I dressed like goddess Isis
Long, black hair in ringlets nicest
Viper’s tooth for men entices
Finest linen robe, top prices! Ra, ra, patra Cleo! [Outro]
My life was a drama
I was one kooky mama! ‘
And I murdered him

[Chorus]
‘Cause I am Cleopatra
Egypt’s royalty
The ruling pharoah, don’t you dare-o
Mess with me! [Verse 8]
Married another brother
He’s an okay geezer
But never told
Of my love for Julius Caesar

[Verse 9]
Had Caesar’s child and hoped
That he’d be crowned king
My bro said no, I said ‘Oh! Mark Antony! Ends in death for him and me-o! Famous beauty coming at ya! Okay, no time to grieve!
