Must be getting early
Clocks are running late
Paint-by-number morning sky
Looks so phony
Dawn is breaking everywhere
Light a candle, curse the glare
Draw the curtains, I don't care, 'cause
It's alright

I will get by
I will get by
I will get by
I will survive

I see you've got your list out
Say your piece and get out
Yes I get the jist of it, but
It's alright
Sorry that you feel that way
The only thing there is to say
Every silver lining's got a
Touch of grey

I will get by
I will get by
I will get by
I will survive

It's a lesson to me
The Ables and the Bakers and the Cs
The ABCs we all must face
And try to keep a little grey

It's a lesson to me
The Deltas and the East and the Freeze
The ABCs we all think of
And try to keep a little love

I know the rent is in arrears
The dog has not been fed in years
It's even worse than it appears, but
It's alright

Cow is giving kerosene
Kid can't read at seventeen
The words he knows are all obscene, but
It's alright

I will get by
I will get by
I will get by
I will survive

The shoe is on the hand it fits
There's really nothing much to it
Whistle through your teeth and split, 'cause
It's alright
Oh well, a touch of grey
Kind of suits you anyway
That was all I had to say, and
It's alright

I will get by
I will get by
I will get by
I will survive

We will get by
We will get by
We will get by
We will survive
