  • 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
