My portfolio is high, I’m going on vacation
Anywhere I wanna, put it on my card
I could use a little sun, and to see some ancient ruins
The pyramids are calling, off to Egypt I will fly

I go swimmin’ in the big Egyptian river
Bathing in the waters of de Nile
The sun is shining down and everybody’s happy
Bathing in the waters of de Nile

My job is so secure and my government is stable
The weather’s getting better, a little warmer every year
And now we’ve got free trade, and everyone will prosper
The locals here are happy, I think I’ll have another beer

I thought I heard a bomb, it must be a celebration
If anything was wrong, they’d tell me on TV
Sometimes I am amazed how perfect things are going
I think I’ll do some shopping, and take a little time for me
