Perry Como Sings Just For You - 1958
 
Let’s Take
An Old-Fashioned Walk
 
Hmmmmmm!
 
Let’s take an old-fashioned walk,
I’m just burstin’ with talk.
What a tale could be told, if we went for
An old-fashioned walk!
 
Let’s take a stroll thru the park,
Down a lane where it’s dark,
And a heart that’s controlled, may relax on
An old-fashioned walk!
 
I know, for a couple who seem to be miles apart,
There’s nothin’ like walkin’ and having a heart to heart.
I know a girl who declined, couldn’t make up her mind,
She was wrapped up an’ sold, comin’ home from
An old-fashioned walk!
 
Some couples go for a buggy ride,
When they start caring a lot!
Others will bicycle side by side,
Out to some romantic spot!
Some take a ride on a bus,
But that would not do for us . . .
 
Let’s take an old-fashioned walk,
I’m just burstin’ with talk.
What a tale could be told, if we went for
An old-fashioned walk!
 
Let’s take a stroll thru the park,
Down a lane where it’s dark . . .
And a heart that’s controlled, may relax on
An old-fashioned walk!
 
I know, for a couple who seem to be miles apart,
There’s nothin’ like walkin’ and having a heart to heart.
 
He knows a girl who declined,
couldnít make up her mind . . .
She was wrapped up an’ sold, comin’ home from
An old-fashioned walk!
He knows a girl who declined,
couldnít make up her mind . . .
She was wrapped up an’ sold, comin’ home from
An old-fashioned walk!
