Walk the Walk

Song Notes

I have to give my second wife credit for this one. She once said to me, "You know, you’re good at talking the talk, but you have no idea how to walk the walk." I thought to myself: Excellent idea for a song!

Sometimes my heart’s confused
And I need someone to tell me
The Gospel Truth

I’m talking plain as day
I mean the living proof
Just call a spade a spade
I’m talking me and you

So come on out and say it
What’s really on your mind?
Your heart is your own business
But if you want a piece of mine

Talk the talk
And you got to walk the walk, baby (ooh-ooh)
Talk the talk
And you got to walk the walk, yeah

And sometimes good people close the door
When they’re sick and tired of hearing
The trash and lies they’ve heard before

Baby is that your case?
Is that the way you cope
With the big blue world
From the end of your rope?

You think you know the answer
But it’s love you’re looking for
And you’re never gonna find it
Till you give a little more

Talk the talk
And you got to walk the walk, baby (ooh-ooh)
Talk the talk
And you got to walk the walk, yeah

Well you come on like a freight train
Then you go down like a boat
You owe everybody something
And you want to roll the note
You’re looking for an angle
But you never got the joke
You can hide your love like silver
Till your heart is going broke

Talk the talk
And you got to walk the walk, baby (ooh-ooh)
Talk the talk
And you got to walk the walk, yeah

If you want to talk the talk
Then you got to walk the walk, baby (ooh-ooh)
Talk the talk
And you got to walk the walk, yeah
