Get On 03:35
You’ll do me no harm, I got the psalms in my pocket If you wanna get to heaven, son, you’re gonna need a rocket You wanna make the pearly gate before they start to lock it Once they lock it, oh you won’t get in See, hell’s just heaven with the lights turned down A few more fires we can dance around And all my friends will be there anyhow ‘Cause I’ve always been a sucker for sin You gotta get on, get to moving Get on, before the night’s too cold You gotta get on, get to moving Get on, before we’re all too old Get on Well I was calm, then I was critical, but now I’m just inspired Slow to go political but I’m getting f**king tired Of the demon screaming freedom with her hair on fire Saying kindness seals our fate See, first we steal the land, and then we set the laws Boundless plains with the fastened doors Oh can’t you see the irony, can’t you see the flaws Oh no we won’t just wait You gotta get on, get to moving Get on, before the night’s too cold You gotta get on, get to moving Get on, before we’re all too old Get on I’m feeling like this life for some’s a little out of reach When your coffee and your scones cost you twelve bucks each, but I’m not here to scold you brother, I’m not here to preach I say to each their own But if we gave a little more, spent a little less You take out what you need but you leave some for the rest And pay some more attention to the pounding in your chest And maybe just skip those scones You gotta get on, get to moving Get on, before the night’s too cold You gotta get on, get to moving Get on, before we’re all too old Get on
