Riot like an Egyptian!

This morning I heard "Walk like an Egyptian" on the radio on my way to work today. On top of that, last night I watched the HBO documentary on Reagan. I guess stuff from or about the 80's just makes me feel good. So with all apologies to the Bangals I present to you my latest song parody:

Riot like an Egyptian
In the old Cairo town square
People are gathering, you know
It's a protest (Oh whey Oh)
They say Mubarak's got to go

From the Pyramids to the Nile
They're fed up with the prez'
Democracy? (We don't know?)
30 years and nothing's changed.

Protesters light the fires and say
'Ay Oh Whey Oh, Ay whey oh'
Riot like an Egyptian!

Protesters got their signs
Written in perfect English
You scratch your head (Oh whey Oh)
Who is really behind all this?

All the prices are going up
Why all this inflation?
It’s a perfect in (Oh whey Oh)
For the Muslim Brotherhood

Everyone in Mumbark’s regime stays Away
Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh
Riot like an Egyption

Turn on your phone And try to Tweet
There’s no internet, try Facebook
Mubarak turned it off (oh whey oh)
Telecoms brought it back

Rioters outnumber all the cops
Been replaced by the Army
Protesters go on (oh whey oh)
Bomb the embassy down the block.

All the media with their scripts
Can’t seem to get a handle on this
It’s not like Iran? (oh whey oh)
Sharia is going Egyptian

All the Muslim chicks in their covered dress say
Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh
Riot like an Egyptian
Riot like an Egyptian
