Aerosmith: Walk This Way Meaning
Song Released: 1975
Walk This Way Lyrics
When I talked to my dad he say
He said you ain't seen nothin till you're down on a muffin
Then you're sure to be a'changin' your ways
I met a cheerleader was a real young bleeder...

The "walk this way" part refers to the new path one obviously takes upon discovering sex. EVERYTHING changes, especially your thoughts. You're not walking "that way" anymore, but "this way"...

This song isn't about sex because sex was a taboo subject in the 70s. Think about it... this song was around when our grandmas and grandpas were living and old people don't like talking about sex. So anyways it's about girls and boys who play on the playground and who go to dances and eat food in the cafeteria and stuff. Also, it's about Frankenstein who is a guy who created a monster by putting an abnormal brain into a very big body.

Sex. Need I say more?

Down on a muffin refers to oral sex because a girl's genital area can be referred to as a 'muffin.'
The boy in the story is nervous and unsure about his first sexual experience, and his friends are telling him, "you ain't seen nothing til you're down on a muffin and you're sure to be changing your ways" obviously meaning once he sees it he won't be able to stop thinking about it and he will want to have sex, then it goes into how he met the cheerleader like everyone else explained already.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

This song has sex written all over it! Ha, ha, ha! Yeah, I'd have to agree with the first guy, because it sounds to me like there's a popular cheerleader, (who's spreads like peanut, butter, throws it around town like the paper boy, etc.) and she leads a high school loser through his first sexual encounter for her own pleasure. He uses his new knowledge to "teach" the neighbor girl, although her daddy isn't too thrilled! After reading all the lyrics, I found this song HILARIOUS!

I thought this song was really cool because of the way Steven sang it until I just read the lyrics and wow its definitely about sex. You think you know a song until you find out its totally different to what you thought it was when you read the lyrics or actually listen to it really closely or when you were just singing it.

Everybody already knows it but on line I didn't see mentioned was the seesaw swinging with the boys in the school is referring to her going up and down on the boys (fucking the shit out of them)

And just to add - it seems like the girl is a bit of a slag: "see-saw swingin with the boys in school" and she uses him for her own pleasure and gets him 'down on her muffin' - when she says "give me a little kiss like this". And then he nibbles the girl next door with his new found skills. Top dollar.

I read in the Aerosmith autobiography that the meaning is that a young boy is caught masturbating by his dad.(backstroke lover) His dad tells him no more jacking off, cause he'll be getting pussy. The cheerleader with her cousin part is a girl Steven had the hots for and had fantasies about as a young boy.

Nah Nah Nah this song was inspired by Young Frankinstein, cause Stephen Tyler was all hopped up on Cocaine looking for a new song, so we went to the movies, and the butler was telling someone to "walk this way" so that's where he got the idea, plus VH1 said so
