"Step On My Old Size Nines" as written by Kelly Jones, Stuart Cable and Richard Mark Jones....
I'd like to know what it's all about?
What's out there?
Am I gonna get old and laugh?
About something
Will I get me a boy or a girl?
Or not either?
Will I get what I want from this world?
I'm a day dreamer

Then I watch the old couple dance
Step on my old size nines and I'll take you 'round

I'd like to know what you're all about?
What's up there?
Are you gonna get old and laugh?
Without a care
Will you get you a boy or a girl
Or not either?
Will you get what you want from this world?
A day dreamer?

Then I watch the old couple dance
Step on my old size nines and I'll take you 'round

I'd love to know what we're all about
We all have done
Am I gonna get old and laugh?
With someone?
Think I'll get me a boy and a girl
Or not either?
Will I get what I want from this world?
I'm a daydreamer

Then I watch the old couple dance
Step on my old size nines and I'll take you 'round

Around,
Around, around
Around, around,
Around, around, around, around
Around, around, around, around

    General Commentfrom the notes in the album you know wthat this song is about how kelly heard a man go and ask a woman if she wanted to dance, but she said she was too tired, so he said step on my old size tens and i'll take you around. kelly found this a really romantic thing and changed tens to nines so it would fit better in the song. despite JEEP not being that great of an album, i still really quite like this song. trhe video is meant to represent a trip to the fancy dress shop Mr Benn went to.

    My grandparents used to be like that, because of my Nan's arthiritus. They're both gone now, but this song makes me think of them - which is nice, in a lot of ways. I'd love to end up like they were one day.
