“(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone” Lyrics

Davy: You wanna hear one more?
Micky: Yeah!
Davy: Here we go.

I, I, I, I, I’m not your steppin’ stone (No, not me, girl!)
I, I, I, I, I’m not your steppin’ stone (No!)

When I first met you, girl, you didn’t have no shoes
Now you’re walkin’ ’round like you’re front page news
You’ve been awful careful ’bout the friends you choose
But you won’t find my name in your book of Who’s Who, no

I, I, I, I, I’m not your steppin’ stone (No!)
I, I, I, I, I’m not your steppin’ stone (No!)
Not your steppin’ stone (Ah, ah, ah-ah) (Ah, ah, ah-ah) (Ah, ah, ah-ah) (Ah, ah, ah-ah)

I, I, I, I, I’m not your steppin’ stone (No, not me, girl!)

You’re tryin’ to make your mark in society
You’re usin’ all the tricks that you used on me
You’re readin’ all them high-fashion magazines
The clothes you’re wearin’, girl, are causin’ public scenes

I said I, I, I, I, I’m not your steppin’ stone (No, not me, girl!)
