All the old paintings on the tomb They do the sand dance, don'cha know? If they move too quick (Oh-Ah-Oh), they're falling down like a domino. And the bazaar man by the Nile He got the money on a bet For the crocodiles (Oh-Ah-Oh), They snap their teeth on a cigarette. Foreign types with their hookah pipes sing: Oh-ah-oh-ah-ooo-aaa-ooo-aaa, Walk like an Egyptian.
The blonde waitresses take their trays, Spin around and they cross the floor. They've got the moves (Oh-Ah-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-Ah-Oh), They're walking like an Egyptian. All the kids in the marketplace say: Oh-ah-oh-ah-ooo-aaa-ooo-aaa, Walk like an Egyptian.
Line your feet astreet, bend your back, Shift your arm, then you pull a clock. Like Sergeant O (Oh-Ah-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-Ah-Oh), They spin their clock and cruise on down the block. All the Japanese with their Yen, The party boys call the Kremlin. The Chinese know (Oh-Ah-Oh), They walk along like Egyptians. All the cops in the donut shops say: Oh-ah-oh-ah-ooo-aaa-ooo-aaa, Walk like an Egyptian,
