The history behind the Egyptian God Thoth...Abe tha Babe plays historian on this one...
Hey. This is Abe tha Babe. I figured I ought to hip y’all the story about a boy, who’s been around for some time. They call him King Toth.
big, bad boy born and bred for a mission,
pick that corn, then he fed them Egyptian
mouths a bit, taught ‘em how jump crocs and stay
out the pit, (yep) then he went and invented the
alphabet, gave ‘em something to play with right
out the crib, (say something) he’ll take it and write
down the shit, he makes a word blur when he pro-
nounces it, for centuries been crafting his
craft, made math too, for time traveling
fast, came through wormholes from Dune, laughing
at the moon, like I got you next, basking
as a werewolf, making every girl swoon, he
ate, man-flesh like orcs from Mount Doom, got a
taste for the English language to boot, (oy) his
greatest tear here, made the state compare theirs,
what? never heard of Bill Shakespeare, that was
Yep, but let me give you a little more, just enough to see where he’s coming from.
Reincarnation is his favorite method of transpor-
tation, he skips through time, instead of waiting, for
sure, he’ll part the waves and, stay for say one hundred
years before it’s like next bod, come here, he gone
wear, (yep) whatever he feel like wearing, and
every shape he takes, mankind can’t help staring,
(steady there) from Jimmy’s guitar, to Mary Baker
Eddy’s flair, and they both had pretty hair,
(when he first came here) people lived in
caves, and ate things like a saber-tooth bear (they were
scared too) but Toth brought ‘em fire and
sired in ways to help ‘em get theirs squared a-
way, it’s pretty fair to say, he’s the reason that we’re
here today, his contribution is a rare dis-
play, from an alien who cared to play, with some
Earthlings, (yep) it’s all fair game to King
Some call him a God, but uh, he won’t cosign that, he’s what you call a seeker of Truth. The more he gets, the closer he gets figuring it all out, and hopefully, if he gets it, y’all will get it too, and the rest’ll be history. That’s King Toth.
