Walk Like an Egyptian

Saturday, March 09, 2013

I have this on my iPhone music list. Popped up on the last stretch home. It'll put some bounce in your step. The Bangles, 1986 Oh-way-oh!

All the old paintings on the tomb
They do the 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
Way-oh-way-oh, ooh-way-oh-way-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
Way-oh-way-oh, ooh-way-oh-way-oh
Walk like an Egyptian

Slide your feet up the street, bend your back
Shift your arm, then you pull 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)
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
Way-oh-way-oh, ooh-way-oh-way-oh
Walk like an Egyptian
Walk like an Egyptian

    I never paid attention before how the lyrics don't really make sense, I just loved the tune and rhythm of the song
