These Boots Are Made for Walkin’ – Nancy Sinatra

This week, I’m taking a bit of license with Jim Adams’ lyrics challenge.  He has called on us to write about a song that features Arms/Elbows/Knees/Legs.  Nancy Sinatra’s song about boots by extension implies legs, and the attached video is rather explicit in the legs department.

The song was song written by Lee Hazlewood and sung by Nancy Sinatra who took it to number 1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and on the British chats in 1966.

Lyrics:
You keep saying you got something for me
Something you call love but confess
You’ve been a’messin’ where you shouldn’t ‘ve been a’messin’
And now someone else is getting all your best
These boots are made for walking
And that’s just what they’ll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you
You keep lyin’ when you oughta be truthin’
You keep losing when you oughta not bet
You keep samin’ when you oughta be a’changin’
Now what’s right is right but you ain’t been right yet
These boots are made for walking
And that’s just what they’ll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you
You keep playing where you shouldn’t be playing
And you keep thinking that you’ll never get burnt (HAH)
I just found me a brand new box of matches (YEAH)
And what he knows you ain’t had time to learn
These boots are made for walking,
And that’s just what they’ll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you
Are you ready, boots? Start walkin’
