about

Words and Music by Dan Sonenberg

lyrics

Big Boy Walking
Down the block
Keeps on working
Round the clock
He's gonna bank the corner
Make that turn
Show the world it's got something to learn
Oh lord

Big Boy Walking
on the avenue
Ain't got time
He's got a lot to do
He's gonna twirl that cane
Raise that collar
Pace that lane
Chase that dollar oh lord

I never thought I'd take
That most improbable step
I never thought I'd see the light
Ain't we lucky I tried through the night

Big Boy Walking
on the boulevard
The days are easy
But the nights are hard
He's gonna walk that beat
Pound that rhythm
If you're on the street
You're gonna wanna walk with him
Oh lord

Big Boy Walking
in the Five and Dime
He's gonna make his choice
And take his time
He's gonna wave that wallet
Push that wagon
I don't know what you call it
But it sure looks like bragging to me

I never thought I'd take
That most improbable step
I never thought I'd see the light
Ain't we lucky I tried through the night

No other voices on the street
To keep the situation neat
No talking loud or out of turn
Like this not that you have to learn

Big Boy Walking

I never thought I'd take
That most improbable step
I never thought I'd see the light
Ain't we lucky I tried through the night

Big Boy Walking
{repeat and fade}
