Here he comes lookin' for his baby
It's for sure, sure and not for maybe 
Don't ask when will the lucky day be
Here he comes and let him tell you himself:

If I seem to scintillate 
It's because I've got a date
A date with a package of
The good things that come with love
You don't have to ask me
I won't waste your time
But if you should ask me
Why I feel sublime 

Steppin' out with my baby
Can't go wrong 'cause I'm in right 
It's for sure, not for maybe 
That I'm all dressed up tonight 

Steppin' out with my honey 
Can't be bad to feel so good
 Never felt quite so sunny 
And I keep on knockin' wood

There'll be smooth sailin' 'cause I'm trimmin' my sails 
With a bright shine on my shoes and on my nails 
[alternate line: In my top hat and my white tie and my tails]

Steppin' out with my baby
Can't go wrong 'cause I'm in right 
Ask me when will the day be
The big day may be tonight
