"Another Pyramid" is a song from the 2000 Disney musical Aida. It features the main villain Zoser informing his son, Radames, about the incoming death of the pharaoh, who has been poisoned by Zoser, and the fact that he must prepare to become the new ruler of Egypt.

An original demo was made in 1999 wich was performed by Sting, the musical version, which had different lyrics, was performed by John Hickok as Zoser and a chorus as his ministers.

LyricsEdit

While you've been away cavorting
Matters here have moved apace
Now I need you home supporting
All the plans I've put in place

First of all this means your wedding
You'll recall your future bride
For the way that Pharaoh's heading
Time's no longer on our side

According to the hawk god, Horus
Our most regal invalid
Is not that much longer for us
Build another pyramid!

There are many who'll be tearful
As our leader fades away
But our architects are cheerful
And each dog must have its day

If our country is to flourish
Then my son must take the lead
Be our inspiration, nourish
All our hopes our dreams our creed

Soon our monarch will have filled a
Tomb just like his fathers did
Summon Egypt's greatest builders
Re: another pyramid

Build it, build it
Another pyramid

There will be a time for mourning
But for now put plans on hold
(Hold)

For I give the nation warning
That before the corpse is cold
(Cold)

We'll extend fair Egypt's power
Egypt's glory strength and style
We shall have our finest hour
Far beyond the mighty Nile

He must have a vault that's grand by
Any standards, floor to lid
Put five thousand slaves on stand by
Build another pyramid!

Build it, build it
Build it, build it
Build it, build it
Build it, build it, 
Build it, build it

He must have a vault that's grand by
Any standards, floor to lid
Put five thousand slaves on stand by
Build another pyramid!

Sad to say our mighty ruler
Is not really in the pink
Hopes could not be minuscular
That he'll come back from the brink

Not to beat around the bush
He looks like heading for his box
At the risk of seeming pushy
We must plan for future shocks

According to the Hawk God Horus
Our most regal invalid
Is not that much longer for us
Build another

Another pyramid
Build another pyramid
Another pyramid
Build another pyramid

Though all doctors and physicians
Have been summoned to his bed
It will soon be top morticians
We'll be calling for instead

With each wheeze the nation's humming
Egypt shakes with every cough
No two ways about what's coming
No discussion - bets are off

Soon our monarch will have filled a tomb
Just like his fathers did
Summon Egypt's greatest builder
Make another

Another pyramid
Build another pyramid
Another pyramid
Build another pyramid

Another pyramid
Build another pyramid
Another pyramid
Build another pyramid

We hate to depress the nation
But our leader has been told
He should cancel his vacation
Even put tonight on hold

This is where his loyal priesthood
Has the chance to do him proud
Holy leaders at the least should
See him happy to his shroud

He must have a vault that's grand by
Any standards, floor to lid
Put five thousand slaves on standby
Build another

Another pyramid
Another pyramid

Another pyramid
Build another pyramid
Another pyramid
Build another pyramid

Another pyramid
Build another pyramid
Another pyramid
Build another pyramid

Another pyramid
