She's working at the pyramid tonight
Working at the pyramid
Working at the pyramid tonight
While prostitution is legal in some limited areas of Nevada, it remains illegal, though widespread, in Las Vegas. Thus, it is possible that Cleo is looking for customers near the Luxor in Las Vegas, a hotel/casino featuring large pyramid architecture, and a general Egyptian theme
It should be noted that an erection underneath bedsheets can create a pyramid shape, as shown by the single art. This could imply by working at the pyramid she’s working on a man’s penis
It is possible that we merely assume that Cleo is doing something seedy, which suggest something more about us than the subject of this song. The Luxor is a giant pyramid structure which is situated along a long road in downtown Las Vegas known as “The Strip”. When she hits “The Strip”, she is merely heading to work inside the Luxor where she works tending to customers to keep her “bills paid”. Though she is doing nothing illegal or untoward, she is still dwelling in a station beneath that in which this descendent of queens deserves. Meanwhile, gaudy fat “pimps” with too much jewelry, twist cigars and watch TV, or the security camera (with the VCR) in a top floor suite.
Working at the Pyramid means either working at a Strip Club where girls work their way up and down the pole like strippers do and also like the Slaves in Egypt worked by bringing more stones up and down the pyramid. Basically she is working at the strip club tonight.
