Walk On By is a song composed by Burt Bacharach, with lyrics by Hal David.

The song was originally recorded by, and a hit for, Dionne Warwick.

It has subsequently been covered many times, and has been a hit for several other artists as well, including Isaac Hayes, The Stranglers, D-Train, Jo Jo Zep, Sybil, Gabrielle, Cyndi Lauper and Seal.

The original version of "Walk On By" was recorded at the same December 1963 session that yielded "Anyone Who Had a Heart", which, in 1964, became Warwick's second Top Ten hit.
