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
B
Gold crocodiles (Oh-Way-Oh)

They snap their teeth on a cigarette


[Chorus]

Foreign types with their hookah pipes sing:

Way-oh-way-oh-way-ooo-aaa-ooo
B~
Walk like an Egyptian.

The blonde waitresses take their trays

Spin around and they cross the floor.
B
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
B
When the buzzer rings (Oh-Way-Oh)

They're walking like an Egyptian

[Verse]
(B)
Slide your feet up the street, bend your back

Shift your arm then you pull it back
(B)
Life's short you know (Oh-Way-Oh)

So strike a pose on a Cadillac


[Verse]
B
If you want to find all the cops,

They're hanging out in the donut shop.
B
They sing and dance (Oh-Way-Oh)

They spin their clock and cruise down the block


[Verse]
B
All the Japanese with their Yen

The party boys call the Kremlin
B
And the Chinese know (Oh-Way-Oh)

They walk along like Egyptians


[Chorus]
E
All the cops in the donut shops say:

Way-oh-way-oh-way-ooo-aaa-ooo...
B
Walk like an Egyptian
