Another version of the “glide,” a popular dance form of the day with the instructions written into the lyrics.

Oriental Ollie,
An Egyptian Dollie,
In a palace on the Nile,
She was most entrancing,
In eccentric dancing,
When she wore her fav’rite (quaint Egyptian) smile.

CHORUS:

Egyptian glide, Oh, do that glide,
First you shiver,
Then you quiver, side to side.
Egyptian glide,
Oh, do that glide,
Yes, my honey, do that funny Cairo stride,
Do that little wiggle woggle way down to your knees;
Roll your eyes and ev’ry thing
Like a real Egyptianese. Oh!
Egyptian glide,
Oh, do that glide,
That quaint Egyptian glide.

Came old Prince Bashooer,
Started in to woo her,
‘Neath the fair Egyptian moon.
Said my honey bunny,
Since Clio’s [sic] a mummy,
You’re the first to dance that (quaint Egyptian) tune.
