Steppin Stone - Lyrics by Monkees


Lyrics
(I'm not your) steppin' stone
By tommy boyce and bobby hart
I I i I I'm not your stepping stone
I I i I I'm not your stepping stone
You're trying to make your mark in society
Your using all the tricks that you used on me.
You're reading all them high fashion magazines
The clothes you're wearin' girl are causing public scenes.I said
I I i I I'm not your stepping stone
I I i I I'm not your stepping stone
Not your stepping stone,
Not your stepping stone.
When I first met you girl you didn't have no shoes
Now you're walking ’round 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 stepping stone
I I i I I'm not your stepping stone
Not your stepping stone,
Not your stepping stone.
