"The Lambeth Walk" is a song from the 1937 musical Me and My Girl (with book and lyrics by Douglas Furber and L. Arthur Rose and music by Noel Gay).

"The Lambeth Walk" has the distinction of being the subject of a headline in The Times in October 1938: "While dictators rage and statesmen talk, all Europe dances to The Lambeth Walk."
