Start Stepping Times A Wasting

You say you're tired of me
You say you want to be free
You say you can't take it anymore
Well start stepping right theres the door

You say you've had it up to here
You say you can't stand me dear
You say it will never be right
And that's why you're stepping out tonight

Well I say don't let me be a weight
I say no need to hesitate
I say don't call it a vacation
I say start stepping times a wasting

We say we can't see eye to eye
We say we agree we can't deny
We say there's nothing left now
And that's why we've both been stepping out
And that's why we've both been stepping out

    (Music break)

I say don't let me be a wight
I say no need to hesitate
I say don't call it a vacation
I say start stepping times a wasting
