Ahh, here she comes, just a-walk-- just, just a-walkin' down the street
Singin' down do be do do wop a do do wop a do do wop
Down do be do do wop a do do wop a do do wop, hey!
I took a walk 'round the market downtown

Takin' it easy just to see what I could found
I found the girls there, long legs and blond hair
All gettin' set to make a mess out of my mind
Hey!

Eyes left
I got my heart burnt, you know why I hurt
They say the miniskirt is coming back in style
I say it's not fair, but what do they care

When you've got power then you use it for a while
Hey!
Eyes right
See the pretty, pretty, pretty girls in the street

Down do be do do wop a do do wop a do do wop
See them walkin' with their pretty shoes on their feet
Down do be do do wop a do do wop a do do wop
Down do be do do wop, wop

God, if you're up there, listen to my prayer
In future man should have a different design
Give him a switch so he can turn off his libido now
Give him a tranquilizer built into his mind

See the pretty, pretty, pretty girls in the street
Down do be do do wop a do do wop a do do wop
See them walkin' with their pretty shoes on their feet
Down do be do do wop a do do wop a do do wop

On their feet
Down do be do do wop, wop
Don't talk to me about women's liberation
They already got me right just where it hurts

Now here she see-- comes, just a-walk-- just a-walkin' down the ssss-streets
Singin' down do be do do wop a do do wop a do do wop
Down do be do do wop a do do wop a do do wop
See the pretty, pretty, pretty girls in the street

Down do be do do wop a do do wop a do do wop
See them walkin' with their pretty shoes on their feet
Down do be do do wop a do do wop a do do wop
See the pretty, pretty, pretty girls in my street

Down do be do do wop a do do wop a do do wop
See them walkin' with their pretty shoes on their feet
Down do be do do wop a do do wop a do do wop
On their feet

Down do be do do wop, wop
