Walking my baby back home
Gee but its great after staying out late
Walking my baby back home
Arm in arm over meadow and farm
Walking my baby back home

We go along harmonizing a song
Or I’m reciting a poem
The hours go by and they gave me the eye
Walking my baby back home

And we stop for a while, she gives me a smile
And cuddles her cheek to my chest
And we start in to pet and that’s when I get
Her powder all over my vest

And just when I try to straighten my tie
She wants to borrow my comb
One kiss and then we continue again
Walking my baby back home

We stop for a while, she gives me a smile
And cuddles her cheek to my chest
We start in to pet and that’s when I get
Her powder all over my vest

And just when I try to straighten my tie
She wants to borrow my comb
One kiss and then we got to do it again
Walking my baby back home
