IRVING BERLIN lyrics - Let's Take An Old-Fashioned Walk

IRVING BERLIN
"Let's Take An Old-Fashioned Walk"

[1st verse:]
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

[Refrain:]
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 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

[2nd verse:]
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

[Alternate Verse:]
Some couples go for a buggy ride
When they start caring a lot
Others will bicycle side by side
Out to some romantic spot
Some take a ride on a bus
But that would not do for us
