Walking My Baby Back Home

    (Turk, Ahlert, Richman)

Transcribed from lyrics by Maurice Chevalier,
From Maurice Chevalier: Encore Maurice! Academy Sound and Vision, LDT, CD AJA 5016.

I've an agreeable baby,
Likes everything that I do!
Dances most every night,
Movies are her delight,
I sort of go for them, too!
But when movies and dances are gone,
That's when I have real fun!

Gee, it's great after being out late,
Walking my baby back home!
Arm in arm, over meadow and farm,
Walking my baby back home!

We go along harmonizing a song,
Or I'm reciting a poem,
Owls fly by and they give me the eye,
Walking my baby back home!

We stop for awhile, she gives me a smile,
And snuggles her head to my chest;
We start in to pet, and that's when I get
Her talcum all over my vest!

After I kind of sweat on my tie,
She has to borrow my comb,
One kiss then, I continue again,
Walking my baby back home!

Oh, oui, oui, it's delightful for me,
Walking my baby back home!
I can't use every word I will choose,
I'll tell you when we're alone!

Oh, yes, yes, when we stop for a rest,
I chug-a-lug to my own,
By this time, I assure you that I'm
Just like a king on a throne!

And then comes the fun, her shoe gets undone,
Oh, yes, I start tying it, then,
Sometimes, I'll admit, I linger a bit,
She makes me start walking again!

Then we stroll till my heel and my sole
Feel like they're down to the bone,
Oh, she's sweet, but it's bad on my feet,
Walking my baby back home!
