So you think you've got friends in high places

With the power to put us on the run

Well, forgive us these smiles on our faces

You'll know what power is when we are done

Son...


You're playing with the big boys now

Playing with the big boys now

Ev'ry spell and gesture

Tells you who's the best, you're

Playing with the big boys now


You're playing with the big boys now

You're playing with the big boys now

Stop this foolish mission

Watch a true magician

Give an exhibition how

Pick up your silly twig, boy

You're playing with the big boys now!


By the power of Ra

Mut, Nut, Khnum, Ptah

Sobek, Sekhmet, Sokar, Selket

Anumbis, Anukis

Hemsut, Tefnut, Meshkent, Mafdet...


You're playing with the big boys now

You're playing with the big boys now

By the might of Horus

You will kneel before us

Kneel to our splendorous power...


You put up a front

You put up a fight

And just to show we feel no spite

You can be our acolyte

But first, boy, it's time to bow

(Kowtow!)

Or it's your own grave you'll dig, boy

You're playing with the big boys now

Playing with the Big Boys now!
