Attention everybody!
I'm gonna show you a brand new dance
It's called "The Walk", "The Walk"
Just let your body talk 'til you're deep in a trance
You don't need no partner, you can walk all alone
Whenever you feel the groove just let your body move
Walkin' to a beat of your own

Everybody walk your body, everybody walk
Everybody walk your body, everybody walk

Attention everybody!
I said it ain't hard to do
Just walk, walk, let your body talk, walkin' so cool
Attention everybody!
I said I just shined my shoes
So you can let your body talk, just watch where you walk
Or your life you're gonna lose
In other words, I'll walk you 'til you're dead

Everybody walk your body, everybody walk
Everybody walk your body, everybody walk

The days of dancing in one place are gone
And honey
You know you can't dance with them tight jeans on
If you try to cop a dip, you trip, slip, and fall
Walking's for the cool baby, put on a camisole

Everybody walk your body, everybody walk
Everybody walk your body, everybody walk

Who? Me?
I wear baggies, zip, snap, and drop
Easy access baby
Yes, before you get a chance to holler "Stop!"
Besides, Rollo likes his freedom
Ain't nothin' like a fresh pair of baggies
Now I know that's right

Everybody walk your body, everybody walk
Everybody walk your body, everybody walk

Hup 2, 3, 4, what the hell are we fightin' for? Walk
Hup 2, 3, 4, what the hell are we fightin' for? Walk
Company fall in line, talk
Hup 2, 3, 4, what the hell are we fightin' for? Walk
Hup 2, 3, 4, what the hell are we fightin' for? Walk
Piano man, play

Damn, I'm 'bout to walk a hole in my Stacy Adams
What time is it?
Little, cute guitar player, make your mama proud
I want all of Detroit City to stand up, clap your hands!
Alright you Polaroids, stay in time with the drummer
Jellybean, don't be so mean
Mr. Jelly, turn it around
Bass man walk downtown
Go on and walk, Terry
I don't think they heard ya'
What time is it? Rock City
Well okay, if you put it that way
Ain't nobody bad
Cheerio

We don't like policemen
We don't like new wave
We don't like television

Everybody walk your body, everybody walk
Any walkers in the house?
Everybody walk your body, everybody walk
Everybody walk your body, everybody walk
Everybody walk your body, everybody walk
Everybody walk your body, everybody walk
Everybody walk your body, everybody walk
Everybody walk your body, everybody walk
Everybody walk your body, everybody walk
What time is it?
Everybody walk your body, everybody walk

- Say, hey baby, where you goin'?
- I'm going home. I can't dance like that.
- Well, baby, that's because you got those jeans on too tight. Now let's just take'em off.
- What do you mean "Let's just take'em off?"
- Come on, take'em off. I got something for you to wear. Here, put this on.
- Uh, you always keep lingerie in your glove department?
- None of my women wear gloves. Now put this on.
- But...
- But my ass. Hey, a play on words.
- But all the girls will stare at me.
- All the girls in this neighborhood already wear camisoles.
- I know, but...
- But, but... that's because it's cool. Now let's get them jeans off.
- Okay, but I'm warning you.
- Warning me about what? Mm, God, this zipper's tight. Here, why don't you lay down?
- Um, that's what I'm tryin' to tell you.
- Stop tryin' to tell me things and pull!
- But...
- Come on, pull!
- I'm warning you.
- Mary, sweet mother Jesus!
- I told you.
- Damn baby, how'd you get all that in them jeans?
- It wasn't easy.
- I know that's right, mmm! Well, I think you'd be more comfortable in this.
- I'm sure I would. I don't know.
- Hurry up Grace, song's almost over.
- My name's not Grace.
- I know that, but hurry up... Grace.
- Man, these are weird. I guess the tag goes in the back.
- Hurry up!
- Okay, okay, how do I look?
- Almost as good as me, now let's go!

- Hey Morris, what time is it? Who's the lovely lady? Introduce us.
- I'll introduce you to a headache if you don't get out of my face! Okay baby, now check this out. We gonna walk 'til the song's over. In other words, meet me at the bar in 32 measures, cool?
- Cool.
- And if you're good, I'll let you work the stick in my ride. Uah ha ha!
