"Walk This Way" as written by and Joe Perry Steven Tyler....
Backstroke lover always hidin' 'neath the cover
'Till I talked to my daddy he say
He said, you ain't seen noting
'Till you're down on a muffin
Then you're sure to be a-changin' your ways

I met a cheerleader, was a real young bleeder
All the times I can reminisce
Ah the best thing lovin' with her sister and her cousin
Started with a little kiss, like this

See-saw swingin' with the boys in the school
With your feet flyin' up in the air
Singin' hey diddle-diddle with the kitty in the middle
You be swingin' like you just didn't care

So I took a big chance at the high school dance
With a missy who was ready to play
Was it me she was foolin'?
'Cause she knew what she was doin'
Taught me how to walk this way
She told me to

Walk this way, walk this way
Walk this way, walk this way
Walk this way, walk this way
Walk this way, walk this way
Ah, just give me a kiss

Like this
School girl sadie with the classy kinda sassy
Little skirt climbing way up her knees
There was three young ladies in the school gym locker
When I noticed they was lookin' at me

I was a high school loser, never made it with a lady
Till the boys told me something I missed
Then my next door neighbour with a daughter had a favour
Took me just a little kiss, like this

See-saw swingin' with the boys in the school
With your feet flyin' up in the air
Singin' hey diddle-diddle with the kitty in the middle
You be swingin' like you just didn't care

So I took a big chance at the high school dance
With a missy who was ready to play
Was it me she was foolin'?
'Cause she knew what she was doin'
Told me how to walk this way
She told me to

Walk this way, walk this way
Walk this way, walk this way
Walk this way, walk this way
Walk this way, talk this way
Just give me a kiss
Like this

    General CommentThey went to the movie "Young Frankenstein" and saw one of the characters, Egore, say "walk this way" that's how Steven got the idea for the lyrics to an already kick ass guitar lick. honest to God.

    General CommentThis song is awesome, but I am a fanatic of Aerosmith and so I don't visualize it as their best. But the phrase "walk this way" means, when a guy fingers a girl but with 2 fingers, and while he is fingering her, his fingers are in a walking motion. SWEAR TO GOD. I found it out in their autobiography.

    General CommentI think its about learning how to "relate" to women, learning how to walk, talk,act, etc. like a man.

    General Commentthe song is an ode to teenage lust - "back stroke lover" -masturbation, "He said you ain't seen nothin' 'til you're down on a muffin" - you havnt experienced anything till you've had REAL p***y. And thats the truth.

    General CommentAerosmith may be a rock band, but there is no doubt in my mind that this is a rap. A very clever and well written rap (as opposed to perhaps 50Cent or Eminem), but a rap nonetheless. I don't agree with anybody who says this is the best Aerosmith song, and certainly not by far. It is an amazing song, and is certainly a classic... and yes it probably is the most popular Aerosmith song (besides "Don't Wanna Miss A Thing" perhaps... but in my books, if Tyler didn't write it, it isn't Aerosmith.) but to me it just isn't classic Aerosmith.

    Nonetheless, fantastic song. Aerosmith are legends.

    General CommentWOW I kinda knew like it was about sex but it's hard to make out the words some times and actually work out what they mean...wow...that's more intense than I had thought!!!! Lol ...ewww even. But what does that guy mean "the riff is too hard and its too fast" does he mean to play on a guitar?? It was the first song I learned man!

    General Commentdegree7 you don't know what you're talking about.

    This is the coolest riff ever conducted in the history of forever and will never be topped.

    The cleverest concoction of sleazy lyrics in the history of forever.

    Overall, in the history of forever it's a great song.
