Gee, but it's great after being out late
Walking my baby back home
Arm and arm over meadow and farm
Walking my baby back home.
We go along harmonizing a song
Or I'm reciting a poem
Owls go by and they give me the eye
Walking my baby back home.
We stop for awhile she gives me a smile
Snuggles her head to my chest
We started to pet and that's when I get
Her talcum all over my vest.
After I kind of straighten my tie
She has to borrow my comb
One kiss then I continue again
Walking my baby back home.

La, la, la, dee
La, la, la, dee.

Know she's afraid of the dark
So I have to park
Right outside the door 'til it's light
She says if I try to kiss her she'll cry
So I dry her tears off all through the night.

La, la, la, dee
La, la, la, dee.

We stop for awhile she gives me a smile
Snuggles her head to my chest
We started to pet and that's when I get
Her talcum all over my vest.
After I kind of straighten my tie
She has to borrow my comb
One kiss then I continue again
Walking my baby back home.
Walking my baby back home
