Yes, I realise this is eleven years old, but it's been bugging ME as well. The answer is that it's "Tutankhamun King of the Nile" by Riccardo Wolf, an awful singalong disco number that seems to have been released as a self-published single in 1978. Youtube (did Youtube even exist in 2003?) has a clip of him singing it. Lyrics: "Tutankhamun weren't no regular guy / he could send you on a trip without you sayin' goodbye" etc.
