LET'S TAKE AN OLD FASHIONED WALK From the Broadway Musical "Miss Liberty" (1949) (Irving Berlin) Eddy Albert & Allyn McLerie (Broadway Production) - 1949 Perry Como - 1949 Doris Day & Frank Sinatra - 1949 Sarah Vaughan - 1956 Gloria Lynne - 1965 Also recorded by: Dean Martin; Bing Croasby; Melissa Walker; 101 Strings Orch; Julie Wilson & Jerry Wayne; Irving Berlin; Bobbi Aird; Louis Armstrong. Some couples go for a buggy ride when they start caring a lot Others will bicycle side by side out to some romantic spot But when you haven't a sou, there's only one thing to do.... Let's take an old fashioned walk, I'm just bursting with talk What a tale could be told if we went for an old fashioned walk Let's take a stroll through the park, down a lane where it's dark And a heart that's controlled may relax on an old fashioned walk I know for a couple who seem to be miles apart There's nothing like walking and having a heart-to-heart I know a girl who declined, couldn't make up her mind She was wrapped up and sold, coming home from an old fashioned walk I used to dream of a millionaire, handsome and rich from the States Taking me out for a breath of air, saying, "The carriage awaits" But since you haven't a sou and I have nothing to do.... Let's take an old fashioned walk, I'm just bursting with talk What a tale could be told if we went for an old fashioned walk Let's take a stroll through the park, down a lane where it's dark And a heart that's controlled may relax on an old fashioned walk I know for a couple who seem to be miles apart There's nothing like walking and having a heart-to-heart I know a girl who declined, couldn't make up her mind She was wrapped up and sold, coming home from an old fashioned walk ********** As recorded by DORIS DAY & FRANK SINATRA: (SPOKEN) DORIS: Gee, I'm glad you came over tonight FRANK: Yeah! It'll be nice riding with the top down DORIS: Oh, but I've spent the afternoon fixing my hair FRANK: Oh, Oh! DORIS: How about a movie, huh? FRANK: No, it's too late for that, they'll be sold out of popcorn. Say, I know! FRANK: Let's take an old fashioned walk I'm just bursting with talk What a tale could be told If we went for an old fashioned walk DORIS: Let's take a stroll through the park Down a lane where it's dark And a heart that's controlled May relax on an old fashioned walk I know for a couple who seem to be miles apart FRANK: There's nothing like walking and having a heart-to-heart BOTH: I know a girl who declined Couldn't make up her mind FRANK: She was wrapped up and sold DORIS: Coming home BOTH: From an old fashioned walk DORIS: Some couples go for a buggy ride When they start caring a lot FRANK: Others will bicycle side by side Way out to some romantic spot (But when you haven't a sou) (There's only one thing to do) BOTH: Let's take an old fashioned walk I'm just bursting with talk FRANK: What a tale could be told DORIS: If we went for BOTH: An old fashioned walk BOTH: Let's take a stroll through the park Down a lane where it's dark FRANK: And a heart that's controlled DORIS: Can relax on BOTH: An old fashioned walk DORIS: I know for a couple who seem to be miles apart FRANK: There's nothing like walking and having a heart-to-heart (Walking and talking) BOTH: I know a girl who declined Couldn't make up her mind FRANK: She was wrapped up and sold DORIS: Coming home from BOTH: An old fashioned walk FRANK: If your girl has declined DORIS: And won't make up her mind BOTH: What you need is a heart-to-heart talk DORIS: Take a stroll through the park FRANK: Down a lane where it's dark BOTH: And go for an old fashioned walk (Contributed/Transcribed by Bill Huntley - January 2005) **********
