To Kool Chris – Walk Like An Egyptian lyrics

All the paintings on the tomb
They do sand dance don't you know
If they move too quick, oh 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, oh way oh
They snap their teeth on your cigarette

Foreign types with the hookah pipes say
"Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh"
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
"Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh"
Walk like an Egyptian

It's like feet up the street bend your back
Shift your arm then you pull it back
Life's hard to know, oh way oh
Just like 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 the clubs, cruise down the block

All the Japanese with their yen
The party boys call the Kremlin
And the Chinese know, oh way oh
They walk the line like Egyptian

All the cops in the donut shop say
"Ay oh whey oh, ay oh way oh"
Walk like an Egyptian
Walk like an Egyptian
