Huey Lewis & The News – Jacobs Ladder lyrics

I met a fan dancer
Down in south side Birmingham
She was running from a fat man selling salvation
In his hand

Now he's trying to save me
Well I'm doing alright the best that I can
Just another fallen angel
Trying to get through the night

Step by step, one by one, higher and higher
Step by step, rung by rung climbing Jacob's ladder

Coming over the airwaves
The man says I'm overdue
Sing along, send some money
Join the chosen few

Hey, Mister I'm not in a hurry
And I don't want to be like you
And all I want from tomorrow
Is to get it better than today

Step by step, one by one, higher and higher
Step by step, rung by rung climbing Jacob's ladder

All I want from tomorrow
Is to get it better than today

Step by step, one by one, higher and higher
Step by step, rung by rung climbing and climbing

Step by step, one by one
Step by step, rung by rung
Step by step
Step by step
Step by step
