Walk Like an Egyptian



All the old paintings on the tomb

They do the sand dance, don'cha know?

If they move too quick (Oh-Way-Oh)

They're falling down like a domino

And the bazaar man by the Nile

He got the money on a bet

For the crocodiles (Oh-Way-Oh)

They snap their teeth on a cigarette

Foreign types with their hookah pipes sing:


Walk like an Egyptian.

The blonde waitresses take their trays

Spin around and they cross the floor

They've got the moves (Oh-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 bands

When the buzzer rings (Oh-Way-Oh)

They're walking like an Egyptian

All the kids in the marketplace say:


Walk like an Egyptian.

Line your feet astreet, bend your back,

Shift your arm, then you pull a clock

Like Sergeant O (Oh-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 (Oh-Way-Oh)

They spin their clock and cruise on down the block

All the Japanese with their Yen

The party boys call the Kremlin

The Chinese know (Oh-Way-Oh)

They walk along like Egyptians

All the cops in the donut shops say:


Walk like an Egyptian

Walk like an Egyptian
