Walking The Dog Lyrics. Baby's back, dressed in black Silver buttons all down her back High, low, tipsy toe She broke a needle and she can't sew. Walkin' the dog Just a-walkin' the dog If you don't know how to do it I'll show you how to walk the dog C'mon now, c'mon, c'mon! Asked my mama for fifteen cents See the elephant jump the fence He jumped so high he touched the sky Never got back till the Fourth of July. Walkin' the dog Just a-walkin' the dog If you don't know how to do it I'll show you how to walk the dog C'mon now, c'mon, c'mon! Oh ho Just-a, just-a, just a-walkin' Just-a, just-a, just a-walkin' Just-a, just-a, just a-walkin' Oh yeah If you don't know how to do it I'll show you how to walk the dog Ohh! Just-a, just-a, just-a, just-a, just a-walkin' Just-a, just-a, just-a, just-a, just a-walkin'.

I am just a walking the dog If you do not know how to do it I will show you how to walk the dog Come on now come on. I asked her mother for fifteen cents I see you ever jumped the fence I jumped so high, touched the skies Did not get back until a quarter to five Walking the do. .Tell me Mary, what is your twelve How does your garden grow What with silver bells and cockle shells And pretty maids all in a row Walking the dog.
That approach served him impressively well on his debut album Walking the Dog. In contrast to the sleeker, more elaborate production style favored by the Northern soulsters of Motown, Thomas rejects pop elements altogether and thrives on rawness on his hits "Walking the Dog" and "The Dog," as well as inspired versions of "Land of 1000 Dances" (which became a major hit for Wilson Pickett), Lee Dorsey's "Ya Ya," and John Lee. Hooker's "Boom Boom.
