​Step It Up and Go

This song is by The Everly Brothers and appears on the album Instant Party! (1962) and on the box set Heartaches & Harmonies (1994).

Nickel is a nickel, dime is dime
Get you a girl, you can have a good time

You gotta step it up and go
You gotta step it up and go
Well you can't stand back
You gotta step it up and go

Two old maids, sittin' in the sand
Each one wishin' that the other was a man

You gotta step it up and go
You gotta step it up and go
Well you can't stand back
You gotta step it up and go

Shootin' dice got your money on the floor
Up comes a law and knocks on the door

You gotta step it up and go
You gotta step it up and go
Well you can't stand back
You gotta step it up and go

She may be old an' ninety years
But she ain't too old for to shift her gears

You gotta step it up and go
You gotta step it up and go
Well you can't stand back
You gotta step it up and go

Jumped in the river, started to drown
Thought about my woman and I turned around

You gotta step it up and go
You gotta step it up and go
Well you can't stand back
You gotta step it up and go

I knocked on the door about half past ten
She said listen here baby, you can't come in

You gotta step it up and go
You gotta step it up and go
Well you can't stand back
You gotta step it up and go
Woh-ooh-oh, Woh-ooh-oh,
Woh-ooh-oh, Woh-ooh-oh,
Woh-ooh-oh, Woh-ooh-oh,
Woh-ooh-oh, Woh-ooh-oh
