Walk This Way

Run-D.M.C., Aerosmith

About Walk This Way

"Walk This Way" is a song by the American hard rock band Aerosmith. Written by Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, the song was originally released as the second single from the album Toys in the Attic (1975). It peaked at number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 in early 1977, part of a string of successful hit singles for the band in the 1970s. In addition to being one of the songs that helped break Aerosmith into the mainstream in the 1970s, it also helped revitalize their career in the 1980s when it was covered by hip hop group Run–D. M. C. on their 1986 album Raising Hell. This cover was a touchstone for the new musical subgenre of rap rock, or the melding of rock and hip hop. It became an international hit and won both groups a Soul Train Music Award for Best Rap Single in 1987 Soul Train Music Awards.

Now there's a backseat lover, that's always undercover
And I talk 'til my daddy say
Said you ain't seen nothing, 'til you're down on a muffin
And there's sure to be a change in ways
Now there's a cheerleader, that's a real big pleaser
As far as I can reminisce
But the best thing of loving, was her sister and her cousin
And it started with a little kiss, like this

See-saw swinging, with the boys in school
And her feet are just fly up in the air
Singing, "Hey diddle diddle with a kitty in the middle"
And they swinging like it just didn't care
So I took a big chance, At the high school dance
With a lady who was ready to play
It wasn't me, she was foolin'
'Cause she knew what was she was doin'
When she told me how to walk this way
She told me to

Walk this way
Talk this way
Walk this way
Talk this way
(She told me to)
Walk this way
Talk this way
Walk this way
Talk this way
Well just gimme a kiss
Ooh, like this!

School girl sleazy with a classy kind of sassy
Little skirt hanging way up her knee
It was three young ladies, in the school gym locker
And they fine, they were looking at D
I was high school loser, never made it with a lady
'Til the boys told me something I missed
That my next door neighbor, had a daughter had a favor
And I gave the girl a little kiss, like this

See-saw swinging with the boys in the school
With your feet flying up in the air
Singing, "Hey diddle diddle, with a kitty in the middle"
I was swinging like I didn't care
So I took a big chance at the high school dance
With a miss who was ready to play
Wasn't me she was foolin'
When she knew what she was doin'
When she told me how to walk this way
She told me to

Walk this way
Talk this way
Walk this way
Talk this way
(She told me to)
Walk this way
Talk this way
Walk this way
Talk this way
Well just gimme some head

The band was formed in Boston, Massachusetts in 1970. Guitarist Joe Perry and bassist Tom Hamilton, originally in a band together called the Jam Band, met up with singer Steven Tyler, drummer Joey Kramer, and guitarist Ray Tabano, and formed Aerosmith.
