Hail Mighty Caesar
Lyrics


(Curtis Salgado and Kevin McKendree, Odaglas Music, ASCAP/East Folks Music, BMI)

You know way back in time
Before the fall of Rome
Caesar conquered everyone
The world was his home
They would dance at the plaza
Down at Palace Square
Grooving to the Nubian band playing there
There were four beats to the bar
And the backbeat was new
Cleopatra shakin’ it
Showing ‘em what to do

Hail, mighty Caesar! (Hail, mighty Caesar!)
I said, Hail, mighty Rome! (Hail, mighty Rome!)
Cleopatra was a beauty
Oh, she is the goddess of the sun
Cleo loved his power, Caesar loved her looks
Love brought them together
So they say in history books
(Hail, mighty Caesar!)
But he don't understand
Cleopatra loves her country
She's the queen of Egypt land

Caesar loved his women
Couldn’t leave them all alone
Had a swinging situation
With the nightlife back in Rome
Got hisself a wife, but she ain’t hip to the fact
He loved Cleopatra
That's why he brought her back
He brought her back from Egypt land
To dance at Palace Square
He made a lot of enemies
But Caesar didn't care

Hail, mighty Caesar! (Hail, mighty Caesar!)
Hail, mighty Rome! (Hail, mighty Rome!)
Cleopatra was a beauty
She is the goddess of the sun
Cleo loved his power, Caesar loved her looks
Love brought them together
So they say in history books
(Hail, mighty Caesar!)
But he don't understand
Cleo loves her country
She's the queen of Egypt land

Well, Cleo threw a party
Said, “Let the games begin!”
It was at Palace Square
When who come walking in
His name was Mark Anthony
The new kid on the block
Cleo had to have him
Yeah, she knew the stud was hot
But what about poor Caesar?
He's in trouble all alone
Politicians killing him
In the name of Rome

Hail, mighty Caesar! (Hail, mighty Caesar!)
Hail, mighty Rome! (Hail, mighty Rome!)
Cleopatra was a beauty
She is the goddess of the sun
Cleo loved his power, Caesar loved her looks
Love brought them together
So they say in history books, y’all
(Hail, mighty Caesar!)
Aw, but he don't understand
Cleopatra loves her country
She's the queen of Egypt land

Hail, mighty Caesar! (Hail, mighty Caesar!)
Hail, mighty Rome! (Hail, mighty Rome!)

Hail, mighty Caesar! (Hail, mighty Caesar!)
Hail, mighty Rome! (Hail, mighty Rome!)

Hail, mighty Caesar! (Hail, mighty Caesar!)
Hail, mighty Rome! (Hail, mighty Rome!)

Hail, mighty Caesar! (Hail, mighty Caesar!)
Aw, Hail, mighty Rome y’all (Hail, mighty Rome!)
That’s right
