Walk Like an Egyptian - Bangles

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: Way-oh-way-oh-way-ooo-aaa-ooo... 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 band When the buzzer rings (Oh-Way-Oh) They're walking like an Egyptian

All the kids in the marketplace say: Way-oh-way-oh-way-ooo-aaa-ooo... 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: Way-oh-way-oh-way-ooo-aaa-ooo... Walk like an Egyptian Walk like an Egyptian
