Music video: the Bangles sing “Walk Like an Egyptian”

Bangles4


There are video slot machines (you can find them in just about any casino) called “Pharaoh’s Fortune,” with a big King Tut wearing sunglasses on top.  This song plays every time you spin the reels.  You get longer selections during bonus rounds.

 

 

So now I associate it with gambling.

 

 

All together now:

 

 

All the old paintings on the tomb
They do the sand dance, don’cha know? 
If they move too quick (oh-way-oh) 
They’re falling down like a domino 

 

And the bazaar man by the Nile 
He got the money on a bet 
Gold crocodiles (oh-way-oh) 
They snap their teeth on a cigarette 

 

Foreign types with their hookah pipes sing
Way-oh-way-oh-way-ooo-aaa-ooo –
Walk like an Egyptian.
