All the old paintings on the tombs
If they move too quick (oh whey oh)

They got the money on a bet
They snap their teeth on your cigarette
Foreign types with the hookah pipes say
Walk like an Egyptian
[The] Blonde waitresses take their trays
They've got the moves (oh whey oh)

They like the punk and the metal band
They're walking like an Egyptian
All the kids in the marketplace say
Walk like an Egyptian
Slide your feet up the street bend your back
Life['s] hard you know (oh whey oh)

They're hanging out in the donut shop
[They] Spin the clubs cruise down the block
All the Japanese with their yen
And the Chinese know (oh whey oh)

Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh
Walk like an Egyptian
