Malcolm Holcombe - To Get By lyrics

Washin' up them dirty ol' dishes Mama's good china washed away in the flood Ev'ry drop o' my common sense Never was good enough To get by to get by To get by lord to get by I scribbled down some grocery list The kind on the frigidaire Rice's grocery down on main street We got credit there To get by to get by To get by lord to get by Too young to buy cigarettes So i stole em for a friend o' mine He dont breathe too good these days But aint givin' up tryin' To get by to get by To get by lord to get by The power of youth runs by and by Stuck in a revolvin' door Some high falutin' trick in my mind Always cries out for more To get by to get by Dem bells and whistles they talk money For the suits and ties in the cubicles Oldtime mem'ries soon forgotten We use to jus' make do To get by to get by To get by lord to get by Egyptians mummified their dead The roman empire flourished All them after life possessions Makes me old and foolish To get by to get by To get by lord to get by To get by to get by Now A dollar burns a hole in my pocket From the magazines o' the american dream The gra** is always greener On my neighbor's property To get by to get by To get by lord to get by To get by to get by To get by to get by
