Walk Like an Egyptian Lyrics

The Bangles

All the old paintings on the tombs
They do the sand dance don’t you know?
If they move too quick (oh whey oh)
They’re falling down like a dominoAll the bazaar men by the Nile
They got the money on a bet
Gold crocodiles (oh whey oh)
They snap their teeth on your cigaretteForeign types with the hookah pipes say
(Whey oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh)
Walk like an EgyptianThe blonde waitresses take their trays
They spin around and they cross the floor
They’ve got the moves (oh whey oh)
You drop your drink, then they bring you moreAll the school kids so sick of books
They like the punk and the metal band
When the buzzer rings (oh whey oh)
They’re walking like an EgyptianAll the kids in the marketplace say
(Whey oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh)
Walk like an EgyptianSlide your feet up the street, bend your back
Shift your arm then you pull it back
Life is hard you know (oh whey oh)
So strike a pose on a CadillacIf you want to find all the cops
They’re hanging out in the donut shop
They sing and dance (oh whey oh)
They spin the clubs, cruise down the blockAll the Japanese with their yen
The party boys call the Kremlin
And the Chinese know (oh whey oh)
They walk the line like EgyptianAll the cops in the donut shop say
(Whey oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh)
Walk like an Egyptian
Walk like an Egyptian
