"Walk Like An Egyptian" is L5's final single and was originally performed by The Bangles. Written by Liam Sternberg (Pietro Nardini)....
All the old paintings on the tombs
They do the sand dance, don't you know?
If they move too quick, oh whey 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 whey oh
They snap their teeth on your cigarette

Foreign types with the hookah pipes say
Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey 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 whey 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 whey oh
They're walking like an Egyptian

All the kids in the marketplace say
Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh
Walk like an Egyptian.

Slide your feet up the street, bend your back
Shift your arm then pull it back
Life's hard you know, oh whey 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 whey oh
Spin the clubs cruise down the block
All the Japanese with their yen
The party boys call the Kremlin
And the Chinese know, oh whey oh
They walk the line like Egyptian

All the cops in the donut shop say
Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh
Walk like an Egyptian, walk like an Egyptian.
