Still walkin barefoot, still walkin barefoot, still,
Still walkin barefoot, in Beverly Hills,
Still walkin barefoot still, in Beverly Hills,

I can walk on the stone, I can walk on the grass,
I'm walkin all over this earth,
I can walk on the line, I can walk on the edge,
I'm walkin all over this earth,
I can walk on low, I can walk on high,
I'm walkin all over this earth,
And, I can walk on the grass, I can walk on the grass,
And walk on, you name it.

Still walkin barefoot, in Beverly Hills,
Still walkin barefoot still, in Beverly Hills,

I keep my feet from burning up,
For years I walked back beat,
With anything under my feet,
An immunity to heat,
An immunity to heat,
And walk on, you name it.

Still walkin barefoot, in Beverly Hills,
Still walkin barefoot still, in Beverly Hills,

Still walkin barefoot, in Beverly Hills,
Still walkin barefoot still, in Beverly Hills,

An immunity to heat.
Still walkin barefoot, in Beverly Hills,
I'm still walkin barefoot still, in Beverly Hills,

Still walkin barefoot, in Beverly Hills,
Still walkin barefoot still, in Beverly Hills, (x2)

Oh for years I walked back beat,
All the years have gone to my feet,
I've walked in the tall grass?
An immunity to heat.
