"Step On" as written by and Eiji Kawamura....
He's gonna step on you again, he's gonna step on you
He's gonna step on you again, he's gonna step on you
You're twistin' my melon man, you know you talk so hip man
You're twistin' my melon man

Hey rainmaker, come away from that man
You know he's gonna take away your promised land
Hey good lady he just wants what you got you know
He'll never stop until he's taken the lot
(Hey Hey he hey hey)

Gonna stamp out your fire, he can change your desire
Don't you know he can make you forget you're a man
Gonna stamp out your fire, he can change your desire
Don't you know he can make you forget you're the man
You're a man

You're twistin' my melon man, you speak so hip

Hey rainmaker he got golden plans I tell you
You'll make a stranger in your own land
Hey good lady he's got God on his side
He got a double tongue
You never think he would lie

(Oh he lied, oooh he's twistin' my melon man
(Oh he lied, oooh he's twistin' my melon man)

Gonna stamp out your fire, he can change your desire
Don't you know he can make you forget you're a man
Gonna stamp out your fire, he can change your desire
Don't you know he can make you forget you're the man
You're the man

He's gonna step on you again, he's gonna step on you
He's gonna step on you again, he's gonna step on you

Hey rainmaker, come away from that man
You know he's gonna take away your promised land
Hey good lady he's got God on his side
He got a double tongue
You never think he would lie

Gonna stamp out your fire, he can change your desire
Don't you know he can make you forget you're a man
Gonna stamp out your fire, he can change your desire
Don't you know he can make you forget you're the man
You're the man

You're twistin' my melon man, you know you talk so hip man
You're twistin' my melon man
(Hey Hey he hey hey)

He's gonna step on you again, he's gonna step on you
He's gonna step on you again, he's gonna step on you

    General CommentWell, this song is originally by a South African guy by the name of John Kongos, and I bet it's got something to do with colonialism and the rise of apartheidt. "He'll make you a stranger in your own land" is a clear reference to the forced migration of the black South Africans to the slums.

    General CommentThey forget the line "kill all the cops" which i think is important to the song.

    General Commentwell, as its a happy mondays song, i guess drugs isnt a bad guess, although considering the lyrics more like a drug dealer if it is to do with drugs. but just because its on a particular soundtrack doesnt mean theres a necessary connection between the two

    General CommentI thought it was "he's gonna take away your promised land."
    Yeah, and the cops part was forgotten, but I always thought he was saying "Calllll the cops!"
    So I'm not sure what to think.
