|Walk Like An Egyptian|
|The Israelites Walk Like An Egyptian|
Would that help with Middle East peace?
Wake up in the morning, workin' and breast fed.
Soldered every mouse and beef head.
Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, Sir.
So that every mouth can be fed.
Darling, Cheese Head, you're far too greasy!
Poor, poor the Israelites, ahh
Darling, she said, I was yours to be seen.
Poor me, the Israelite. Aah.
Get up in the morning, ache in me head, sir
Taste in me mouth like a parrot that's dead
Ooh, ooh, me ears are alight.
Get up in the morning, slaving for bread, sir
So that every mouth can be fed
Poor me, the Israelite.
Story about this misheard lyric by: P. Harris
A commercial ran on British TV a few years back using 'The Israelite(s)' as the soundtrack. The lyrics were completely, deliberately and hilariously wrong, including the 'me ears are alight' line.
