Song Saturday – The Bangles Walk like an Egyptian

The Bangles were a band that came on the US scene in the mid-80s. They had several great songs but honestly, this is the one that always makes me get up and walk!

Just bend your back – push your arm out and pull it back!

The video montage of various people walking like Egyptians always makes me laugh!

All the old paintings on the tombThey do the sand dance, don’t you knowIf they move too quick (oh way oh)They’re falling down like a domino

All the bazaar men by the NileThey got the money on a betGold crocodiles (oh way oh)They snap their teeth on your cigarette

Foreign types with the hookah pipes sayWay oh way oh, way oh way ohWalk like an Egyptian

The blonde waitresses take their traysThey spin around and they cross the floorThey’ve got the moves (oh way oh)

You drop your drinkThen they bring you moreAll the school kids so sick of booksThey like the punk and the metal band

When the buzzer rings (oh way oh)They’re walking like an EgyptianAll the kids in the marketplace sayWay oh way oh, way oh way ohWalk like an EgyptianSlide your feet up the streetBend your backShift your arm, then you pull it back

Life is hard you know (oh way oh)So strike a pose on a CadillacIf you want to find all the cops

They’re hanging out in the donut shopThey sing and dance (oh way oh)They spin the clubs cruise down the block

All the Japanese with their yenThe party boys call the KremlinAnd the Chinese know (oh way oh)They walk the line like EgyptianAll the cops in the donut shop sayWay oh way oh, way oh way ohWalk like an EgyptianWalk like an Egyptian
