  • Listen while you read
    I'm steppin' out with my baby
    Can't go wrong 'cause I'm in the 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 my top hat
    And my white tie and my tails

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

    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, dance

    There'll be smooth sailin'
    'Cause I'm trimmin' my sails
    In my top hat
    And my white tie and my tails

    I'm steppin' out with my baby
    Can't go wrong 'cause I'm in the right
    Ask me when will that day be
    The big day may be tonight, what a night Writer/s: Irving Berlin
