"Pyramania" as written by Alan Parsons and Eric Woolfson....
There are pyramids in my head
There's one underneath my bead
And my lady's getting cranky
Every possible location
Has a simple explanation
And it isn't hanky-panky

I had read
Somewhere in a book, they improve all your food and your wine
It said, that everything you grow in your garden would taste pretty fine
Instead, all I ever get is a pain in the neck and a
Yap yap yap yap yap yap yap

I've consulted all the sages
I could find in the yellow pages
But there aren't many of them
And the myan panoramas
On my pyramid pajamas
Haven't helped my little problem
I've been told
Someone in the know can be sure that his luck is as
Good as gold, money in the bank and you don't even pay for it
If you fold, a dollar bill in the shape
Of the pyramid that sprinted on the back

It's no lie
You can keep the edge of a razor as sharp as an
Eagle's eye, you can grow a hedge that is vertically straight over
Ten feet high, all you really need is a pyramid and just a little luck
I had read, somewhere in a book, they improve all your food and wine
I'd been told, someone in the know can be sure of his good luck
It's no lie, all you need is a little bit of pyramidic help

    General CommentThis was about 'pyramid power', the fad from a few decades back (60s, 70s, or 80s, don't ask me, I wasn't alive then), sparked, I believe, by somebody discovering that if you left a razor blade in a pyramid, it got sharper. Immediately people put them everywhere, claiming the affects that this song mentions (imporves all your food, etc). A while later, somebody realised that you can leave a razor blade anywhere and it will get sharper. Oh well.
    I'm pretty sure that this song is mocking pyramid power, especially because of "Instead, all I ever get is a pain in the neck and a/Yap yap yap yap yap yap yap"

    General CommentThis is the closest thing to a title track the Alan Parsons Project album Pyramid has. It is absolutely incredible, as a song, as is the entire album. A must have.

    And yes, it is about Pyramid Power.

    This is probably the most unique Parsons song out there, and one of the best. It deserves more credit than it gets, as does the band as a whole.
