There's a backseat lover,
That's always undercover
And I talked till my daddy say,
Said "ya ain't seen nothin till your down on a muffin,
And theres sure to be a change in way"
Now theres a cheerleader, that's a real big pleaser
As far as I could reminice
And the best thing lovin' was you sister and your cousin
And it started with a little kiss, like this

She start swingin' with the boys in school
And her feet are flyin' up in the air
Singin hey diddle diddle with the titty in the middle,
And you swingin like you just don't care
So I took a big chance at the highschool dance
With a lady who was ready to play
It wasn't me she was foolin'
Cause she new what she was doin
When she told me how to walk this way, she told me to

Chorus
Walk this way, talk this way (x2)
She told me to
Walk this way, talk this way (x2)
Just give me a kiss... Like this

School girl sleezy with a classy kinda sassy
Little skirt hangin way up her knee
There were three young ladies in a school gym locker
And I find there were lookin at me
I was a highschool loser never made it with a lady
Till the boys told me somethin' I miss
Then my next door neighbor
Had a daughter, had a favour
And I gave the girl a little kiss, like this

She start swingin' with the boys in the school,
With your feet flyin up in the air
Singin hey diddle diddle
With the titty in the middle
I was swingin like I didn't care
So I took a big chance at the highschool dance
With the miss who was ready to play
Wasn't me she was foolin,
Cause she knew what she was doin
When she told me how to walk this way, she told me to

Chorus
