It’s A Lovely Day For A Walk

Writer(s): Irving Berlin
Orchestra: Tommy Dorsey
Outtake from the movie Blue Skies (1943)

Darling, what a morning
Darling, what a day
Please don’t keep me waiting, let’s be on our way
My heart’s bursting beyond control
Let’s go out for a nice long stroll

Arm in arm, let’s go walking
Let’s go walking you and I
There’s a sun up in the sky
It’s a lovely day for a walk

Arm in arm, we’ll be talking
I’ll be saying something sweet
And we’ll tell the folks we meet
It’s a lovely day for a walk

We won’t be stopping for window shopping
But there’s a church out in the sun
A special feature about the preacher
Is turning twosomes into one

Arm in arm, let’s go walking
Come, let’s hear that marriage talk
And we’ll tell our great-grandchildren
‘Twas a lovely day for a walk

-How do you do, do, do? Fancy meeting you
-On a day that is so divine
Wha’d’ya say, say, say, this delightful day?
Hope to hear that you’re feeling fine
-Just a whiff of the great outdoors, what a heavenly smell
Happy walking to you and yours
Glad to see you looking well
-Why don’t you wait, wait, wait, kindly hesitate?
-We would like to admire the view
Gotta go bye, bye, bye, there’s a knot to tie
-Do you mind if we follow you?
