​Steppin' to the Bad Side

This song is by Henry Krieger and appears on the musical soundtrack Dreamgirls (1982).

Steppin' to the bad side
Gonna take a mean ride
The smile I had has gone away
Those that steal are gonna pay
Steppin' to the bad side... today

Steppin' to the bad side
Gonna take a mean ride
The smile I had has gone away
Those that steal are gonna pay
Steppin' to the bad side... today

I tell ya now, it's got to end
No more trustin' them, my friends
We're gonna change our style, change our tone
Look for songs we sing our own

Steppin' to the bad side
Gonna take a mean ride

I got you all the breaks you need
Just two years, we'll be in the lead
Just sit back, its plain to see
Open your eyes and trust in me

Steppin' to the bad side
Gonna take a mean ride

Steppin' steppin' steppin'
Steppin' steppin' steppin'
Steppin' to the bad side
Steppin' to the bad side

Steppin' to the bad side
Steppin' to the bad side
Steppin' to the bad side
Steppin' to the bad side

I had to step into the bad side
I had to take myself a mean ride
You know the smile I had has gone away (ooh)
Those that steal are gonna pay
Steppin' to the bad side... today

Yeah-ee-yeah
Man just stole my woman from me
Took her down to Tennessee
She was the best girl I ever knew
If it wasn't for him, she'd still be true
I've always been a good man, it's been said
But I guess the man, I wish he were dead
Men like him make good men mad
Starting today I'm gonna be bad
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Step, step to the bad side
Step, step to the bad side...
