Steppin' Stone
The Monkees Lyrics


I-I-I-I-I'm not your steppin' stone
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, they're causing public scenes

I said, I-I-I-I-I'm not your steppin' stone
I-I-I-I-I'm not your steppin' stone

(No!)

Not your steppin' stone
Not your steppin' stone

When I first met you, girl, you didn't have no shoes
But, now you're walking around 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?"

I said, I-I-I-I-I'm not your steppin' stone
(No, girl, not me!)
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 (step-step-steppin' stone)
Not your steppin' stone (step-step-steppin' stone)
Not your steppin' stone (step-step-steppin' stone)
Not your steppin' stone (step-step-steppin' stone)

No, girl, I'm not your steppin' stone
Not your steppin' stone (step-step-steppin' stone)
Not your steppin' stone (step-step-steppin' stone)

too bad it wasn't a monkee's song. "(I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone" is a rock song written by Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart. It was first recorded by Paul Revere & the Raiders and appeared on their album Midnight Ride, released in May 1966.

Classic song by The Monkees. Still as fresh as the day it was minted.
