         E

Egyptian cream, she loves to smear
She loves to smear it everywhere
On her face and on her hands
Til she feels like she's a man

             A                    G#m            C#m      B/F#

And when the change comes and the hair grows all over her skin

        A              G#m         C#m          B

She's a natural; she's part of the body she's in

         E

In the Sahara, there she lay
On an ironing board one day
She was gone for seven months
Hadn't guessed what happened once

          A                G#m           C#m          B/F#

When they told her "You're pregnant" she threw up her hands

    A            G#m          C#m         B

And thousands of fingers grew out of the sand

F#m  A     E

E____gyp___tian cream

         E

Egyptian cream, she loves to smear
She loves to smear it everywhere
When you're sore, too sore to dream
Try some more Egyptian cream

             A                    G#m             C#m      B/F#

And when the change comes and the grass grows all over the mound

    A             G#m        C#m        B

The tadpoles come slithering out of the ground

F#m  A     E    F#m

E____gyp___tian cream

F#m  A     E    F#m

E____gyp___tian cream

F#m  A     E    F#m

E____gyp___tian cream

F#m  A     E    [ch]B5/F#[/ch]

E____gyp___tian cream
