"Walk Like an Egyptian" is a 1986 single by American pop rock band The Bangles from their album Different Light. It was used as the first ending theme for the anime JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders.

Ending Animation

The ending animation begins with Star Platinum clapping its hands before reopening them. A clock appears, wrapped in green flames and presumably the vines of Hermit Purple. The clock's hands swiftly tick away before morphing into an arrow that rapidly moves along a sandy background before moving on to a slideshow of the current Joestar group (Jotaro, Kakyoin, Avdol, Joseph and Polnareff in that order) accompanied by their Stands and sporting the Tarot cards that each individual Stand is named after. There are also certain transitions, such as Avdol's image briefly changing to that of an ankh on a rapidly circling background which morphs into the vines of Hermit Purple, and the subsequent shot of Joseph as well. The final shot of the credits sequence is of a multi-colored eye, which contains an image of Cairo, as well as the silhouettes of the Joestar group journeying toward it. The ending fades out as the eye slowly closes.

English Lyrics

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 their hookah pipes say
(Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh)
Walk like an Egyptian.

The blond waitresses take their trays
They spin around and they cross the floor
They 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 and then you pull it back.
Life is 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.

Trivia

  • The ending transition shows Star Platinum's hands opening up to a clock, possibly referencing its time stop ability.
  • The clock entangled in purple vines likely references DIO's Stand The World and Jonathan's unknown Stand.
  • Afterwards, a hand from the clock turns into an arrow snaking across a sandy-colored background. The head of the arrow is shaped exactly like that of the Stand Arrow.
  • There is an animation error in the ending for episodes 3 and 4 where Muhammad Avdol is shown having two right hands. This mistake is fixed in episode 5.
