Mr. Lunt: Yo! Listen to the boys and we'll tell you

Boyz: Now!

Mr. Lunt: How losin' your cool and having a

Boyz: Cow!

Mr. Lunt: Can run you out when your lid gets flipped,

and get your mug up all over Egypt!

Boyz: Na na na, na na na na, na na na na na na.

Mr. Lunt: On the banks of the Nile, born and

Boyz: Raised!

Mr. Lunt: In the crib of the Pharaoh in his teenage

Boyz: Days!

Mr. Lunt: Chillin'. Kickin'. Wearing silk jamsies,

learning hieroglyphics from his granddad Ramses.

When a whack Egyptian-

Boyz: Black belt kung fu!

Mr. Lunt: Started whoopin' it up-

Boyz: On his homey Hebrew!

Mr. Lunt: Coulda called the cops, stood back but instead -

Boyz: He took a big stick upside of his head!

All: A mess down in Egypt, our troubles are severe.

Na na na, na na na na, na na na na na na.

The stress down in Egypt increases more each year.

Na na na, na na na na, na na na na na na.

Mr. Lunt: Now word spread fast and he got all scared.

Boyz: Oh!

Mr. Lunt: He'd be better off by avoiding the Pharaoh

Boyz: Oh!

Mr. Lunt: He packed his bags, thinkin' if he stayed

they'd be punishing him in a capital way!

Boyz: Oh! Oh!

Mr. Lunt: Now Lord only knew, but He thought He might-

Boyz: Stay a while in the desert like a Midianite.

Mr. Lunt: To disengage his rage and become equipped

to return to his home as the prince of Egypt.

All: I guess, down in Egypt, no moving day is near.

Na na na, na na na na, na na na na na na.

Unless the prince of Egypt will take us out of here.

Na na na, na na na na, na na na na na na.

Na na na na na na na. Hey!

Fun Facts


  • This is the shortest Boyz in the Sink song to date. Brian states this was because they didn't want to overspend the budget like they did with the previous song.
  • This is one of the few Silly Songs that follow with the episode, since Larry leaves wearing the Lone Stranger hat.
  • The title card shows the Bear Trap song that was replaced by His Cheeseburger. Larry's complexion is recolored to match his appearance in this song. However, Larry was also animated shorter as the series progressed.
  • Mr. Lunt's complexion is much different, with a beauty mark on his left cheek. His shirt is slightly different, and his glasses do not move. However, his bandana, chain, and earrings stay the same as before.
  • The German dub cuts the part with Mr. Lunt telling the announcer that he and the Boyz had another idea to tell the story of Moses.
    • As a result, the announcer's dialogue at the beginning is uninterrupted.
    • Also cut are Bob and Larry's lines at the end.
