Here are the lyrics to “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 have 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

Yeah, you keep lyin’ when you oughta be truthin’
And 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 playin’ where you shouldn’t be playin’
And you keep thinkin’ that you’ll never get burnt, ha
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

Are you ready, boots?
Start walking”
