Em                   C
        Set the cheetahs on the loose

B                   Am
        There's a thief out on the move

Em                  C
        Underneath our legion's view
        
B                  Am
        They have taken Cleopatra

             Em
Run run run come back for my glory
(Cleopatra, Cleopatra)
                            C
Bring her back to me

                                 Em
And we'll run to the future
                                           C
Shining like diamonds in a rocky world
A rocky, rocky world
                        B
Our skin like bronze and our hair like cashmere
                                  Am
As we march to the rhythm
On the palace floor
Em
Chandeliers inside the pyramid
C
Tremble from the force
B
Cymbals crash inside the pyramid
Am
Voices fill up the halls


Chorus:
Em                   C
        Set the cheetahs on the loose

B                   Am
        There's a thief out on the move

Em                  C
        Underneath our legion's view
        
B                  Am
        They have taken Cleopatra

Verse:
The jewel of Africa
(Jewel)
What good is a jewel that ain't still precious
How could you run off on me?
How could you run off on us?
You feel like God inside that gold
I found you laying down with Samson
And his full head of hair
Found my black queen Cleopatra
Bad dreams Cleopatra


Chorus:

Remove her
Send the cheetahs to the tomb
Our war is over, our queen has met her doom
No more she lives, no more serpent in her room
No more, it has killed Cleopatra, Cleopatra

                                                             G
Big sun coming strong through the motel blinds
                                       G/F#                                         Em
Wake up to your girl for now let's call her Cleopatra, Cleopatra
I watch you fix your hair
                                                                     G
Then put your panties on in the mirror, Cleopatra
                                     G/F#
Then your lipstick, Cleopatra
Then your six inch heels
Em
Catch her
She's headed to the pyramid



                                G
She's working at the pyramid tonight
                  G/F#
Working at the pyramid
                         Em
Working at the pyramid tonight
                                G
She's working at the pyramid tonight
                  G/F#
Working at the pyramid
                         Em
Working at the pyramid tonight
Working at the pyramid
                                G
She's working at the pyramid tonight
                  G/F#
Working at the pyramid
                         Em
Working at the pyramid tonight


G
Pimping in my convos

G/F#
Bubbles in my champagne
Let it be some jazz playing

Em
Top floor motel suite, twisting my cigars
Floor model TV with the VCR

      G
Got rubies in my damn chain
G/F#
Whip ain't got no gas tank
But it still got woodgrain
Em
Got your girl working for me
Hit the strip and my bills paid
                    G
That keep my bills paid
G/F#
Hit the strip and my bills paid
                    Em
Keep a nigga bills paid

She's working at the pyramid tonight
Working at the pyramid
Working at the pyramid tonight
Working at the pyramid
Working at the pyramid tonight
Working at the pyramid
Working at the pyramid tonight
Working at the pyramid

You showed up after work I'm bathing your body
Touch you in places only I know
You're wet and you're warm just like our bathwater
Can we make love before you go
The way you say my name makes me feel like
I'm that nigga
But I'm still unimplored
You say it's big but you take it
Ride cowgirl
But your love ain't free no more, baby
But your love ain't free no more

She's working at the pyramid tonight
Working at the pyramid
Working at the pyramid tonight
Working at the pyramid
That's right
Working at the pyramid tonight
Working at the pyramid
Working at the pyramid tonight
Working at the pyramid
Working at the pyramid tonight

The progression is Em, G, Cadd9 then Am; relative to capo.

The song's also in a 4/4 beat (120bpm). The chord changes happen much faster than what's mentioned here.

The riff is spot on though (Y)
