Balk Like an Egyptian (A Song Parody)


To the tune of Walk Like An Egyptian (as if you didn’t already know that)

Arab judokas on the news
They like to fake don’t you know
If to face Israelis (no way no)
They’re falling down like a domino

All the haters by the Nile
Their attitude is really shitty
Antisemites (oh way oh)
They’ve forgotten we have a peace treaty

Foreign types with the hookah pipes say
Way no way no, way no way no
Balk like an Egyptian

Arab judokas after they lose
They spin around when you try to shake their hand
They’ve got the moves (no way no)
They drop the bout but they’re never banned

Arab states on the attack
Give it up, Israel’s our land
When the buzzer rings (no way no)
They’re balking like an Egyptian

All the kids in the marketplace say
Way no way no, way no way no
Balk like an Egyptian
