Gee, it’s great after bein’ out late

Walkin’ my baby back home

Arm in arm over meadow and farm

Walkin’ my baby back home

We go ’long harmonizing a song

Or I’m recitin’ a poem

Owls go by and they give me the eye

Walkin’ my baby back home

We stop for a while, she gives me a smile

And snuggles her head on my chest

We start in to pet and that’s when I get

Her talcum all over my vest

After I kinda straighten my tie

She has to borrow my comb

Once kiss then I continue again

Walkin’ my baby back home

She’s ’fraid of the dark so I have to park

Outside of her door till it’s light

She says if I try to kiss her she’ll cry

I dry her tears all through the night

Hand in hand to a barbecue stand

Right from her doorway we roam

Eats and then it’s a pleasure again

Walkin’ my baby

Talkin’ my baby

Lovin’ my baby

I don’t mean maybe

Walkin’ my baby back home
