Something for the rag and bone man Over my dead body Something big is gonna happen Over my dead body
Someone's son or someone's daughter Over my dead body This is how I end up sucked in Over my dead body
I'm gonna go to sleep Let this wash all over me
We don't really want a monster taking over Tiptoe around, tie him down We don't want the loonies taking over Tiptoe around, tie them down
May pretty horses Come to you As you sleep I'm gonna go to sleep And let this wash all over me

Ronnie Van Zant wrote the Lynyrd Skynyrd classic "Gimme Three Steps" after making the mistake of dancing with a girl whose boyfriend was in the bar and probably had a gun. He asked for a 3-step head start.
