The Puppini Sisters – Walk Like An Egyptian lyrics

All the old paintings on the tomb
They do the sand dance, don'cha know?
If they move too quick (Oh-Wa-Oh)
They're falling down like a domino

All the bazaar man by the Nile
They got the money on a bet
For the crocodiles (Oh-Wa-Oh)
They snap their teeth on your cigarette

Foreign types with their hookah pipes sing:
Walk like an Egyptian.

The blonde waitresses take their trays
They 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:
Walk like an Egyptian.
Walk like an Egyptian.

Slide your feet up the street bend your back
Shift your arm then you bend it back
Life is hard you know (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)
Spin the clubs cruise down the block

All the cops in the donut shop say:
Walk like an Egyptian.
Walk like an Egyptian.
