Some couples go for a buggy ride when they start caring a lot
Others will bicycle side by side out to some romantic spot
But when you haven't a sou, there's only one thing to do

[Chorus]
Let's take an old fashioned walk; I'm just bursting with talk
What a tale could be told if we went for an old fashioned walk
Let's take a stroll through 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 nothing like walking and having a heart-to-heart
I know a girl who declined, couldn't make up her mind
She was wrapped up and sold coming home from an old fashioned walk

I used to dream of a millionaire, handsome and rich from the States
Taking me out for a breath of air, saying, "The carriage awaits"
But since you haven't a sou and I have nothing to do

[Chorus]

I know for a couple who seem to be miles apart
There's nothing like walking and having a heart-to-heart
I know a girl who declined, couldn't make up her mind
She was wrapped up and sold coming home from an old fashioned walk
