(Verses are spoken with
Walking sound background effects throughout)
Man, slow down, don't walk so fast
All ya got to do is take your time
We'll get there
Stay in the road
I don't blame the people
For 'em sayin, 'Walkin the blues'
Walkin' the blues?
'Cause this is it, boy
Now, I think I'm 'on relax myself
That's the way you relax
Now, watch this
Boy, it's a hot day
All ya got to do
Is put one foot in front the other one
And just keep on walkin'
Walkin' them blues
That's what you call slidin' em, too
I hope the old lady's home
When I get there, all this walking
Ah, when I say, the 'old lady'
I mean my wife
I ain't talkin' about my mother-in-law
But I know she's always there
So, we just gonna keep on walkin' it in
(piano & bass)
We'll soon be there
(piano & bass to end fade)
