The Lyrics

Back in 2001, Pakistani police siezed an 'ancient' mummy from a home in Quetta. It claimed to be the embalmed remains of Rhodugune, daughter of Xerxes, king of Persia. It turned out to be a fake!
Golden mask, Persian name on the breast
Carved on the coffin, Xerxes' personal crest
Found it in a village in Pakistan
Some poor camel breeder's gonna be a rich man

Writing in cuniform, mummy, it looks so old
Writing in cuniform, but, oh, the scam unfolds

Flown to Karachi on a 747
Asma Ibrahim thinks that she's in heaven
Open up the box, to see what we can see
But carbon dating, well it didn't agree

Wrapped linen, organs removed
Daughter of Xerxes but could this be proved
Gave it a CAT scan, neck was all broke
Now we started thinking that it all was a joke

Writing in cuniform, mummy, it looks so old
Writing in cuniform, but, oh, the scam unfolds

Writing in cuniform, writing in cuniform
Writing in cuniform, writing in cuniform

Polaroids sent to American scholar
Trying to get him to part with his dollar
But the coffin was just too flawed
Now it's all uncovered, it was all a fraud

Writing in cuniform, mummy, it looks so old
Writing in cuniform, but, oh, the scam unfolds

Writing in cuniform, writing in cuniform
Writing in cuniform, writing in cuniform

Brilliant idea - loved the title... but do they breed camels in Pakistan?

Phil I have no idea how they breed camels (in Pakistan or anywhere else) but Sardar Wali Reki was described as a camel breeder http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/horizon/2001/persianmummytrans.shtml

Do they breed camels in Pakistan? How else do you explain the existence of Osama bin Laden and his ilk?
Phil Alexander - March 05, 2003 - Report this comment
OK, OK, I was wrong, they do breed camels in Pakistan (did I leave out a 'with' there?) - but surely OBL's not a camel, even if he does have the hump

Hey Tao ! Caught this a bit late ! Good job ! Found it searching for Skyhooks using Chuck's new search function. As an Aussie, thank you for crediting Skyhooks and not the ghastly Iron Maiden cover.....
