    Egypt, Egypt

    If I ever have a Daughter
    I will name her Egypt,
    Which was once the name of the Nile
    For the water gave life to my people
    For 4 thousand miles

    They called their country
    Mud of the “Black land”
    If it wasn’t for them
    Something’s you just wouldn’t understand

    Homer’s Helen went there
    Instead of traveling to Troy
    Cause she wanted men to protect her
    Not those Trojan boys

    They even gave Helen a potion
    So she could be at ease
    Give us some historical credit
    Why don’t you please ?

    Plato transferred doctrines
    Based on sets of numbers of three
    A concept known first to the Egyptians
    The unseeable they could see

    Egypt was the first Country
    To have an empire
    The elements were known
    As earth, air, water and fire

    The Pharaoh’s chariot
    Were pulled by foreign Kings
    Egypt, Egypt are two words
    I proudly sing

    they always try to link Greece and Egypt from 5,000 or 6,000 B.C. but everybody knows Plato and Arisotle studied in Eqypt so what does that tell you
