​One Step On The Ladder

This song is by Elkie Brooks and appears on the album Rich Man's Woman (1975).

I'm a bus stop roaming travellin' queen, going no place
Though I really wanna stay with you
Wouldn't wanna lie and be untrue
The life I lead has got to be a movie with no end
'Cause that's the way I like it, I really couldn't change it

I don't know where it's taking me
I'm slipping away from my song
I don't know what it is that is shaking me
Moving me on, getting me going

One step on the ladder is keeping me going
Headed to where I have no way of knowing
One step at a time on the ladder

Wanna be ? pony ride, never let go
Even if it is a one-night stand
You're a man I think could understand
Hot blood in my family veins, I can't keep it down
Though I really wouldn't hurt you
If I did I wouldn't mean to

I can't wait any longer
This filly is ready for her big race
I'm stood in the line under starters orders
Catch me in time, put a smile on my face

One step on the ladder is keeping me going
Headed to where I have no way of knowing
One step at a time on the ladder
One step at a time on the ladder

I'm a bus stop roaming travellin' queen, going no place
Though I really wanna stay with you
Wouldn't wanna lie and be untrue
The life I lead has got to be a movie with no end
'Cause that's the way I like it, I really couldn't change it

I don't know where it's taking me
I'm slipping away from my song
I don't know what it is that is shaking me
Moving me on, getting me going

One step on the ladder is keeping me going
Headed to where I have no way of knowing
One step at a time on the ladder
One step at a time on the ladder

One step on the ladder is keeping me going
Headed to where I have no way of knowing
One step on the ladder is keeping me going
Headed to where I have no way of knowing
