Steppin' Out

by Memphis Slim

Memphis Slim (September 3, 1915 – February 24, 1988) was an American blues pianist, singer, and composer. He led a series of bands that, reflecting the popular appeal of jump blues, included saxophones, bass, drums, and piano. A song he first cut in 1947, "Every Day I Have the Blues", has become a blues standard, recorded by many other artists. He made over 500 recordings.




You go where you want
You do what you please
Never let on, that even once
That you've ever been lonely
It's nice to see you alone
Are you lookin' for somethin'
Maybe you ain't gettin' at home?
 
Your hair is in place
You're dressin' to kill
Your old man has promised
When he died he would leave you his money
And the pool where you swim
Are you lookin' for somethin'
Maybe you ain't gettin' from him?
 
Steppin' out, steppin' out
To get a little action on the side
Steppin' out, steppin' out
The day time queen takes a midnight ride
 
And it's plain as plain can be
You're a woman who wants to get free
If you're steppin' out tonight, honey,
Come on and step out with me
 
The party's a bore
It's bound to get worse
Let's sneak out somewhere
And engage in our own celebration
Will you pour me some wine?
Are you thinkin', baby, maybe
Your needs are the same as mine?
 
Wanna go for a walk,
Go for a ride,
Maybe just stand here and think
What we can do to each other
No, we don't have to dance
If you're thinkin' of steppin' out
Baby, this is your chance
 
Steppin' out, steppin' out
To get a little action on the side
Steppin' out, steppin' out
The day time queen takes a midnight ride
 
And it's plain as plain can be
You're a woman who wants to get free
If you're steppin' out tonight, honey,
Come on and step out with me
