The rhythm in walkin'
It keeps me movin' along.
The rhyme in my mind
It keeps me singin' this song.

I'm gonna keep searchin' for my mother-of-pearl.
I'm gonna leave footprints, ooh oh ooh oh oh, all over the world.

I remember my childhood
When I would
Just unwind with a run--

I'd shoot, barefoot,
To the pond, wave my wand,
And live in my own land of fun.

I'd walk the woods with some homemade goods
Like nunchucks that I cut
When I didn't know that I could,
But I did, and I'm glad,
I had the moments I had when I was
Leavin' little ninja footprints in the mud.

The rhythm in walkin'
Keeps me movin' along.
The rhyme in my mind
Keeps me singin' these songs.

I'm gonna keep searchin' for my mother-of-pearl.
I'm gonna leave footprints, oh, all over the world.

Feet you've taken me this far
Let's just see how far we can go.
Take me, make me, go see the sea
And sail some archipelago.

I'll trade my shoes for some homesick blues
That don't last, just evaporate
Into similar hues
As I walk the beach sand,
To turn 'round where I stand to see
All of my footprints washed away by the sea.

The rhythm in walkin'
Keeps me movin' along.
The rhyme in my mind
Keeps me singin' these songs.

I'm gonna keep searchin' for my mother-of-pearl.
I'm gonna leave footprints
All over this big old, bad old world.
