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

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

You’re trying to make your mark in society
You’re using all the tricks that you used on me
You’re reading all them high-fashion magazines
The clothes you’re wearing, girl, are causing public scenes

I said 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!)
Not your steppin’ stone
Not your steppin’ stone

Micky: Go, Rich!

I, I, I, I, I’m not your steppin’ stone

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

Not your steppin’ stone
Not your steppin’ stone
Not your steppin’ stone
Not your steppin’ stone
I’m not your steppin’, steppin’ stone
Step-step-steppin’ stone
Not your steppin’
Step-step-steppin’ stone
Step-step-steppin’ stone
Oh no
Oh no
I’m not your, not your, not your, not your
Not your steppin’ stone
Step-step-steppin’ stone
Not your steppin’
Not your steppin’
Not your steppin’, steppin’ stone
Oh no
Oh no
I’m not your stepp-in’ stone!
No!
