I'm Stepping Out

"I'm Stepping Out" is the third and last single[1] from the final John Lennon and Yoko Ono album Milk and Honey. In it, Lennon celebrates his enthusiasm for the night life of New York City, and makes tongue-in-cheek reference to his "househusband" period. It reached No. 88 in the UK Singles chart, and in the US at No. 55 in the US Billboard Hot 100[2] and number 57 on the Cashbox Top 100.[3]
