The Lyrics

A recent archaeological expedition into the Cuzco region of Peru has uncovered an amazing relic, the 15th-century equivalent of a Facebook profile for the kingdom’s ninth Sapa Inca (emperor), Pachacuti Inca Yupanqui. Special thanks to the curators at La Casa Concha for permission to reprint the (rough) translation here.
Hottie, hottie, I’m an Incan hottie
Bawdy hottie, chicha drinkin’ hottie
Hottie, mountain dwellin’ hottie
Haughty hottie, story tellin’ hottie
Snotty, patronizin’ hottie
Gaudy hottie, accessorizin’ my body
Everybody, gather ’round and party
Party hearty (Inca town parody)

Every girl wants to meet Machu Picchu Man
The one for whom they incant, always an Incan
Farmin’ in the mornin’, hoe, man, hoe
Waterin’ the garden, tubers grow
I’m your Pachacuti
I’m Machu Picchu Man
Here to make the earth shake like no other can
Hey, hey, hey hey hey

Machu Picchu Man
I am the Machu Picchu Man
Machu Picchu Man
I live on Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu Man
I am the Machu Picchu Man
Machu Picchu Man
I’m rulin’ Machu Picchu

’Warkhi, Anawarkhi, ’Warkhi, she’s my wife, my Anawarkhi
’Warkhi, Anawarkhi, ’Warkhi, she’s my life, my Anawarkhi
’Warkhi, Anawarkhi, ’Warkhi, love to funk my Anawarkhi
’Warkhi, Anawarkhi, ’Warkhi, she’s so hot, my Anawarkhi

So hot, Anawarkhi, alright

This here man fought to be the Machu Picchu Man
To come and plant my seed on Machu Picchu land
Beat the damned Chankas, I’m the one
While Urco and our dear old dad turned to run
That’s how I was crowned as Machu Picchu Man
Channeling the Sun God right here in Cuzco land
Hey, hey, hey hey hey

Machu Picchu Man
I am the Machu Picchu Man
Machu Picchu Man
I live on Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu Man
I am the Machu Picchu Man
Machu Picchu Man
I’’m rulin’ Machu Picchu

(repeat and fade)
