My Walking Stick
, from the film "
Alexanders Ragtime Band
", Leon Redbone
Take away my high hats, take away my fav'rite tie.
Take away my white spates, I'll still get by.
But my walking stick you simply must let that be.
I mean you can't take that away from me.
Without my walking stick, I'd go insane.
Can't look my best, I'd feel undressed, without my cane.
Must have my walking stick 'cause it may rain.
And when it pours can't be outdoors, without my cane.
If I ever left my house, without my walking stick,
It would just be something, I could never explain.
The thing that makes me click on lovers lane
Would go for naught, if I were caught without my cane.
