Paul Revere & The Raiders', "Steppin' Out "
The Lyrics:
Well, I had to leave town because of Uncle Sam's deal, ha ha ha yeah
Well, I guess my good lovin' done lost its appeal
Because when I come back I heard the bad bad news
They say our big romance has been gettin' abused
Now tell me true, don't lie to me
Have you been step, step, step, step, step, step, steppin' out on me?
I've got ways of findin' out if you've been steppin' out on me
It'll do me good and I'll give you a piece of my mind
An Armed Forces soldier who is either on leave or has finished his enlistment returns home to discover his girlfriend has reportedly been seeing another man behind his back. In the song, he is confronting her and informing her that he has no qualms about ending the relationship if the story is true.
