Lyrics

Are you ready boots?
Start walkin
Yee haw
C'mon
Let’s go

You keep saying you got something for me (uh)
Well officer I don’t mind to say you do
Now your looking right where I thought you’d be looking
Legs come handy when laws in front of you

These boots are made for walkin
And that’s just what they’ll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you

You believe you’ve stopped me for a reason (uh)
Now I’m pretending my bendings just for fun
You keep playing where I got you playing (yeah)
These double 'D’ initials work to run

These boots are made for walkin
And that’s just what they’ll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you

I’m the girl with the good boys who don’t mean you no harm
This gotten way with Hazzard County charm
There ain't no crime in havin' a little fun

Swerve my stride
Bat my sexy eyes
Where my boots at (haha)
Strut ya stuff come on

Hey ya’ll
Wanna come and see something (uh uh, uh uh)
Can’t touch, can I get a hand clap for the way I work my back

Tick tock all around the clock drop it
Push ya tush, like that
Can I get a sueee
Can I get a yee haw

You keep thinking what you shouldn’t be thinking
Another to far is down till you kissing ground
I’m a gonna send you back home as you crying
But Uncle Jesse he sure is gonna be proud

These boots are made for walkin
And that’s just what they’ll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you


These boots are made for walkin
And that’s just what they’ll do
One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you

Come on boots
Start walking
Come on ladies

Hey ya’ll
Wanna come and see something (uh uh, uh uh)
Can’t touch, can I get a hand clap for the way I work my back
Tick tock all around the clock drop it
Push ya tush, like that
Can I get a sueee
Can I get a yee haw

Come on Willie (ohh yeah, owww)
Yeee haw
Willie Nelson everybody (uh)
Let’s go home now
