"These Boots Are Made For Walking" as written by and Lee Hazlewood....
You keep saying you got something for me
Something you call love but confess
You've been a'messin' where you shouldn't 've been a'messin'
And now someone else is getting all your best
Well, these boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you
You keep lyin' when you oughta be truthin'
You keep losing when you oughta not bet
You keep samin' when you oughta be a'changin'
What's right is right but you ain't been right yet
These boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you
You keep playing where you shouldn't be playing
And you keep thinking that you'll never get burnt,hah
Well, I've just found me a brand new box of matches, yeah
And what he knows you ain't have time to learn
These boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you
Are you ready, boots?
Start walkin'

    General Comment"These boots are made for walkin' and that's just what they'll do, one of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you"... need I say more? It's basically an "I will get over you" song, in a great and classic way.

    General CommentPersonally, I think this song is more about revenge rather than getting over a person. "These boots are gonna walk all over you" sounds like she will get back at him. Also the line "And you keep thinking that you'll never get burnt,hah Well, I've just found me a brand new box of matches, yeah And what he knows you ain't have time to learn" implies that she is ready to do something.
