Take A Step

One Step at a Time

TAKE A STEP

If y’got a great big mountain to climb

And that mountain’s covered with slime

There’s only one way to get to the top,

One step at a time!

 

Cho: Take a step!  Take a step!

Who knows, it might be fun!

Take a step!  Take a step!

When you gotta get somethin’ done!

 

If you’re freezin’ there in your underwear

Cause y’can’t decide what clothes to wear

Put on your socks n start from there,

One step at a time!

Chorus    (C7 for key change)

 

If y’got to clean your room today

And you’d rather go outside and play

Just take that mess and use your head,

Hide it under the bed!!

 

Chorus

(Buzz Chorus)

 

If y’got to eat an ele-phunt

Do y’start at the back, or at the front?

It’s a lot t’eat, but it’ll taste fine!

One bite at a time!

Chorus (Take a bite! – less you’re a vegetarian!)

Chorus

When you gotta get somethin’ done!

When you gotta get somethin’ done!
