    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

    <instrumental interlude>

    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
