Buck Owens performs "Hey Good Lookin'".Live on The Lawrence Welk Show.

"Hey, Good Lookin'" is a 1951 song written and recorded by Hank Williams, and his version was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2001.Since its original 1951 recording it has been covered by a variety of artists.

The Hank Williams song was inspired by another song by the same title, which was written by Cole Porter in 1942.The lyrics for the Williams version begin as a come on using double entendres related to food preparation ("How's about cookin' somethin' up with me?"). By the third and fourth verses, the singer is promising the object of his affection that they can become an exclusive couple ("How's about keepin' steady company?" and "I'm gonna throw my date book over the fence").

Hank Williams Hey Good Lookin' Lyrics

 

Say hey, good lookin' - what ya got cookin'?

How's about cooking somethin' up with me?

Hey, sweet baby - don't you think maybe

We can find us a brand new recipe?

 

I got a hot rod Ford, and a two dollar bill

And I know a spot right over the hill

There's soda pop and the dancing's free

So if you wanna have fun, come along with me

 

Say hey, good lookin' - what ya got cookin'?

How's about cooking somethin' up with me?

 

I'm free and ready, so we can go steady.

How's about saving all your time for me?

No more lookin' - I know I been tookin'

Hows about keepin' steady company?

 

I'm gonna throw my date book over the fence

And buy me one for five or ten cents

I'll keep it till it's covered with age

Cause I'm writin' your name down on every page

 

Say hey, good lookin' - what ya got cookin'?

How's about cooking somethin' up with me?
