Bangles - Walk Like An Egyptian

(12" extended remix)

 "Walk Like An Egyptian"

All the old paintings on the tombs,
They do the sand dance,
Don't you know?

If they move too quick
They're falling down like a domino.  
All the bazaar men by the Nile,
They got the money on a bet.

Gold crocodiles they snap their teeth
On your cigarette. types with their

hookah pipes say 
Walk like an Egyptian.

The blond waitresses take their trays
They spin around and they cross the floor;
They got the moves.

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,

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
Shift your arm and then you pull it back.

Life's hard you know
When the buzzer rings,
So strike a pose on a Cadillac. you want to find all the cops
They're hanging out in the donut shop.
They sing and dance

Spin the clubs cruise down the block.  
All the Japanese with their yen
The party boys call the Kremlin 
And the Chinese know
They walk the line like Egyptian.

All the cops in the donut shop say:
Walk like an Egyptian

Walk like an Egyptian.

Ancient Egyptian Talismans

Scarab beetle
The young scarab beetles emerged spontaneously from the burrow they were born in. 
Therefore they were worshipped as "Khepera", which means "the one who came forth". scarab-beetle god Khepera was believed to push the setting sun along the sky in the same manner as the beetle with his ball of dung. In many artifacts, the scarab is depicted pushing the sun along its course in the sky. Ankh is a symbolic representation of both Physical and Eternal life. It is known as the original cross, which is a powerful symbol that was first created in Ancient Egypt.
Ankh is typically associated with material things such as water, air, sun, as well as with the Gods,
who are frequently pictured carrying an Ankh.

In Egyptian history, the heart replaced the heart which was removed during mummification. Sometimes assimilated to the Bennu,"Soul of Râ",
 it brings the protection of both Osiris and Râ.
