I used to see you on the avenue
You were the girl that let me follow you
You used to hang out in the alleyway
You sewed a button on my shirt one day

I asked around til I found your name
Then underneath the arches in the pourin' rain
I said you (yeah you)
I want you, every step of the way

Do you want to, do you want to, do you want to dance
Take a chance baby, take a chance
I'll be with you every step of the way
I'll even show you how to strut someday

Ain't got a girl 'n' it's a cryin' shame
I can't figure out who's to blame
I want you (yeah you)
I want you, every step of the way

I know, things gettin' better
I know, it's gonna be o.k.
So don't go, I ain't gonna let ya
I want to be with you, every step of the way

So take a walk down the avenue
Just you 'n' me baby, me 'n' you
Remember that night in the alleyway
You know something, you still look the same

This world is a mean old world
It don't mean nothin' without you girl
I want you (yeah you)
I want you, every step of the way
