Float Away

ONE STEP FORWARD

You take one step forward and two steps back
It ain’t that hard once you get the knack
But how you ever gonna get back in the black
taking one step forward and two steps back 

There was a little ant climbing up a hill
he said “I’ll make it to the top, I know I will”
but he wasn’t being careful and so he tripped
and all the way down to the bottom he slipped. 

Singing... one step forward and two steps back
It’s the forward motion that I lack
how you ever gonna get back in the black
taking one step forward and two steps back, Hey! Hey! 

there was a little duck with a great big bill
one day he said, “Doc, I’ve had my fill.”
the doctor cut it off, but to his surprise
it grew right back to twice it’s size 

Singing... one step forward and two steps back
nobody better make any wise quacks
how you ever gonna get back in the black
taking one step forward and two steps back, Hey! Hey!

There was a pretty ballerina, she put one foot ahead
but the other foot pulled her back instead.
She said, “How can I ever do my act,
Taking one step forward and two steps back?” 

Singing... one step forward and two steps back
She said, “It ain’t so hard once you get the knack”
how you ever gonna get back in the black
taking one step forward and two steps back, Hey! Hey! 

There was a little pup, he wanted to run
With all the big dogs and have some fun
But every time he tried to take the lead
He couldn’t get his feet quite up to speed. 

Taking one step forward and two steps back
That ain’t the way to keep up with the pack
how you ever gonna get back in the black
taking one step forward and two steps back, Hey! Hey!
