The Lyrics

Why swath mummies in a bandaged cloth?
Muslin sheets won’t keep ’em wrapped up right.
The innards will not seep
from those pharaohs in deep sleep.
Their soma is trussed up,
but their souls are free to creep.

Big finds: swathed mummies, fixed in bandaged cloth
undergo inspection in the light.
They lasted ’cause they’re in linen
weavers back then were spinnin’.
Mummies fixed in bandaged cloth that’s tight.

Clever idea and lines, but isn't the song longer? I'm sure it is, as we used it on Origami Dished Me Scant Applause...
