The Lyrics

Part of my "Blame It On The Pop" self-challenge. Ancient repositories of unimaginable treasure need better security measures.
I'm on the road, ancient treasures, love to fetch
Whether they're flogged for cash or put on my desk
You could call me Indiana Jones Mark II
Egyptian tomb, just a typical Thursday night
I'm nickin' jars with pharaoh's kidneys in them, weird, right?
The professors pay good for those things, it's true

But there's one question that you're askin'
"All these temples, how the hell'd you get in?"
Well, I've found this trick that's made all treasures mine
It seems the password is the same one ev'ry time

Once thought I'd need to figure out some riddles and clues
Seems that I was wrong, now entry's easy-y-hee
All I do-o is spea-ea-heak:
"Open Sesame"

You're askin' me "How could this fact come to be?
That phrase is Arabic, you said it worked in Greece"
No, it doesn't make sense, but since it works, well
Sure makes my work bree-ee-ee-za-ay
I utter that phrase and I've found me a sweet crown
I dunno who's it was, but I don't care that much now
Spanish doubloons? I've got a ship's worth of that
Bust of Caligula, that weird old prat

Stuff from sixteen diff'rent cultures
Long-dead kings, guess I'm a patient vulture
Ev'ry single day, there's new swag that I'll find
I hate to use that word, but it really describes

The kinda stuff I find in ancient Egyptian tombs
Been there along, finders keepers, see-ee-hee
It belo-ongs to me-ee-hee-ee
Not a damn museum, this is my score
Exploitation of this one phrase, buddy-ee-hee
Repeat a-after me-ee-hee
"Open Sesame"

Oh, one I'll day show you a room in my house
Filled with trinkets from my heists
A whole row of Viking hats
And a shelf of Roman knives
Some items from the dawn
Of time, ain't that really neat?
All the credit should belong
To "Open Sesame-ee-ee-ee"

I've had all this stuff appraised, and it's all real, dude
It's all really old, and they'll stay with me-ee-hee
I found them first, see-ee-hee-ee
Might've been hidden behind big-ass doors
Just one phrase that opens them all, buddy-ee-hee
Repeat a-after me-ee-hee
"Open Sesame"

"Open Sesame-ee"
Holy Grail, I've got that, buddy-ee-hee
This phrase su-ure helped me-ee-hee
"Open Sesame"

That's the kind of thing an idiot puts on his luggage!

This one was fantastic!!! I love the adventurous feeling of this parody paired with the goofiness of being able to get whatever ancient treasures you want just by saying this silly magic word. Brilliant stuff.

for some reason those magic words don't work to open a box of whoppers! 5's
