The Mesopotamians Song Lyrics-They Might Be Giants


We’ve been driving around

From one end of this town

To the other and back

But no one’s ever seen us

Driving our Econoline van

And no one’s ever heard of our band

We’re the Mesopotamians

Sargon, Hammurabi, Ashurbanipal and Gilgamesh

And they wouldn’t understand a word we say

So we’ll scratch it all down into the clay

Half-believing there will sometime come a day

Someone gives a damn

Maybe when the concrete has crumbled to sand


We’re the Mesopotamians

Sargon, Hammurabi, Ashurbanipal and Gilgamesh

The Mesopotamish sun is beating down

And making cracks in the ground

But there’s nowhere else to stand

In Mesopotamia

(But no one’s ever seen us)

The kingdom where we secretly reign

(And no one’s ever heard of our band)

The land where we invisibly rule

As the Mesopotamians

Sargon, Hammurabi, Ashurbanipal and Gilgamesh

This is my last stick of gum

I’m going to cut it up so everybody else gets some

Except for Ashurbanipal, who says my haircut

makes me look like a Mohenjo-Daren

Hey, Ashurbanipal


I’m a Mesopotamian

Sargon, Hammurabi, Ashurbanipal and Gilgamesh

We’re the Mesopotamians

Sargon, Hammurabi, Ashurbanipal and Gilgamesh

Hey, man, I thought that you were dead

I thought you crashed your car

No, man, I’ve been right here this whole time

Playing bass guitar

For the Mesopotamians

Sargon, Hammurabi, Ashurbanipal

Sargon, Hammurabi, Ashurbanipal and Gilgamesh

We’re the Mesopotamians

Sargon, Hammurabi, Ashurbanipal and Gilgamesh
