Nancy Sinatra: These Boots Are Made for Walkin'



Written by: Lee Hazlewood
Released: February 1966
Album: Boots
Label: Reprise

This is a song from my childhood. I have loved it since I first heard Nancy Sinatra's voice coming out of my brand-new Japanese-made transistor radio in 1966. The song hit number one in both the United States and United Kingdom. Interesting historical note: The video shows the popularity of mini- and micro-mini-skirts.



The album "Boots": from which the song came.

These Boots Are Made for Walking'
By Nancy Sinatra


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
Well, 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'
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)
Well, I've 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

[SPOKEN]

Are you ready, boots?
Start walkin'
