Lava fizzy or the misheard lyrics of Akhnaten

What the Chorus sounds like it’s singing in The Funeral of Amenhotep III:

Hush! Hush, a little! x2
Look at me! And him! x4
Lava fizzy etc.

This bit of the libretto is in Ancient Egyptian and sends the pharao off into eternal life. So not that far off, eh? Lava fizzy.

Ankh, ankh, en mitak

Live life, thou shall not die
Yewk heh er heh
Thou shall exist for millions of millions of years
Aha eh heh
For millions of millions of years

(Patrick Joiner made it easy for all of us to follow the text).

  1. If I were ENO’s chorusmaster, I’d totally go with Lava fizzy!
