Lyrics for Walk This Way by Aerosmith:

Instrumental Intro

Verse 1
Backstroking lover, always hiding 'neath the covers
'Til I talked to my daddy, he say
He said, "You ain't seen nothing 'til you're down on a muffin
Then you're sure to be a-changing your ways."
I met a cheerleader, was a real young bleeder
All the times I could reminisce
'Cause the best things of loving with her sister and her cousin
Only started with a little kiss, like this

Solo

Pre-Chorus
See-saw swinging with the boys in the school
With your feet flying up in the air
Singing "Hey, diddle-diddle with your kitty in the middle
Of the swing like I didn't care."
So I took a big chance at the high school dance
With a missy who was ready to play
Wasn't me she was fooling 'cause she knew what she was doing
And I knew love was here to stay when she told me to

Chorus
"Walk this way, talk this way"
"Walk this way, walk this way"
"Walk this way, walk this way"
"Walk this way, talk this way"
Ah, just give me a kiss
Like this

Solo

Verse 2
Schoolgirl sweetie with the classy kinda sassy
Little skirt's climbing way up her knee
There was three young ladies in the school gym locker
When I noticed they was looking at me
I was a high school loser, never made it with a lady
'Til the boys told me something I missed
Then my next door neighbor with a daughter had a favor
So I gave her just a little kiss, like this

Solo

Pre-Chorus
See-saw swinging with the boys in the school
With your feet flying up in the air
Singing "Hey, diddle-diddle with your kitty in the middle
Of the swing like I didn't care."
So I took a big chance at the high school dance
With a missy who was ready to play
Wasn't me she was fooling 'cause she knew what she was doing
And I knew love was here to stay when she told me to

Chorus
"Walk this way, talk this way"
"Walk this way, walk this way"
"Walk this way, walk this way"
"Walk this way, talk this way"
Just give me a kiss
Like this

Outro Solo

Song Facts

“Walk This Way” is one of Aerosmith’s signature songs. It was released in 1975 as the second single from the album Toys in the Attic. It did not originally chart, but after “Dream On” from the band’s debut album was reissued and climbed to #6 in 1976, “Walk This Way” was also reissued and reached #10 in early 1977.

The band got the idea for the song’s lyrics from a line in the film Young Frankenstein that originally came from The Three Stooges. While the lyrics sound dirty on the surface, the less obvious meaning trumps it. The title of the song derives from the idea that his fingers are moving in a walking motion while he is sexually pleasing her.

In 1986, producer Rick Rubin arranged for Run DMC to do a cover of the song involving both Tyler and Perry. While both acts were initially hesitant and uninterested, the song became a surprise top 10 hit in the US and the UK, and revived Aerosmith’s career which, at the time, was a low point.
