Songs: “Walk Like an Egyptian”

By the Bangles:


All the old paintings on the tombs
They do the sand dance don’t you know
If they move too quick (o-way-oh)
They’re falling down like a domino

All the bazaar men by the Nile
They got the money on a bet
Gold crocodiles (o-way-oh)
They snap their teeth on your cigarette

Foreign types with the hookah pipes say
Ay-o-way-o, ay-o-way-oh
Walk like an Egyptian

Blonde waitresses take their trays
They spin around and they cross the floor
They’ve got the moves (o-way-oh)
You drop your drink then they bring you more

All the school kids so sick of books

They like the punk and the metal band
When the buzzer rings (o-way-oh)
They’re walking like an Egyptian

All the kids in the marketplace say
Ay-o-way-o, ay-o-way-o
Walk like an Egyptian

Slide your feet up the street bend your back
Shift your arm then you pull it back

Life is hard you know (o-way-oh)
So strike a pose on a Cadillac

If you want to find all the cops
They’re hanging out in the donut shop
They sing and dance (o-way-oh)
Spin the clubs cruise down the block

All the Japanese with their yen
The party boys call the Kremlin

And the Chinese know (o-way-oh)
They walk the line like Egyptian

All the cops in the donut shop say
Ay-o-way-o, ay-o-way-o
Walk like an Egyptian
Walk like an Egyptian
