Get Going, Get Gone

 

words and music by
John Greene

 next time round i could be a winner
had my chances like all of us sinners, yeah
short term gains just aren’t worth the candle
cancel the bitch
if it’s too tough to handle it, now
get up, get out, move on, buy a ticket,
walk if you have to,
it’s better than sticking it out,
If there's no doubt, she's not the one
get going, get gone

you can’t slam a door if it isn’t open,
can’t spill the milk
if you haven’t bought any, no,
there ain’t no smoke without any matches,
you’ll have to run fast
if you’re going to catch me now

your god, my god,
who gives a goddam
you can’t prove it anymore than i can now
left hand, right hand,
black, white or indigo
the one doesn’t know
what the others doing anyhow
get up, get out, move on, buy a ticket,
walk if you have to,
it’s better than sticking it out,
If there's no doubt, she's not the one
get going, get gone
