Step By Step - The Crests (Los Ordinales en el Inglés)



Step, step
Step, step
Step, step
Step, step

Step by step, I fell in love with you
And step by step, it wasn't hard to do

Kiss by kiss, and hand in hand
That's the way it all began
Soon we found the perfect plan for love


Side by side, we took a lovers walk
And word by word, we had a lover's talk

One word led to another and then
In no time we're up to ten
My heart knew it was gonna end in love


1st step, a sweet hello
2nd step, my heart's aglow
3rd step, we had a date
4th step, we stayed up late
5th step, I walk you home
6th step, we're all alone
7th step, we took a chance
One kiss and true romance


Step by step, we climbed to heaven's door
Step by step, each thrill invited more

Then you promised faithfully
All your love belonged to me
Now I know we'll always be in love

(Steps)

Step, step
Step, step
Step, step
Step, step
Step, step

6th - sixth
7th - seventh
