      About "I Get By"

      Lyrics for Everlast - "I Get By"

      Government man keep calling my house
      Talking 'bout I owe, harassing my spouse
      Gotta park my truck on another block
      'Cause the sub-prime loan got my ass in hock

      Gotta couple good friends with helping hands
      I need a brand new job with a health care plan
      They closed the plant, they stole my job
      And told me crime don't pay unless you ask the mob

      So I smoke a little grass, drink a little wine
      Watch a little tube, try to kill a little time
      And every single day I fall a little more behind
      But I'm paying it no mind, it'll all be fine

      I get by (got it good, got it good)
      I barely get by (got it good, got it good)
      I barely get by
      I laugh not to cry
      I stay a little high
      I ain't gonna lie
      I barely get by
      I laugh not to cry
      I stay a little high
      I ain't gonna lie (got it good)

      Party people in the place to be
      Put your hands in the sky if you barely getting by
      It's on and on till the brake of dawn
      Got to keep the rent paid and the power on

      Yes yes y'all and it never stops
      I don't trust the government, I don't trust no cops
      We dip and we dive and we socialize
      We struggle and we strive just to stay alive

      I get by (got it good, got it good)
      I barely get by (got it good, got it good)

      When I finally get home I can't relax
      'Cause I've been over worked and I've been over taxed
      My bank accounts empty, all my cards are maxed
      And I ain't looking for no pity, I'm just stating the facts

      I voted for some change and it's kinda strange
      Now it's all I got in my pocket
      I bought a few LED's, now I'm growing some trees
      And it's a sweet fucking hustle don't knock it

      I told y'all before I would break the law
      To put some food in my baby girl's belly
      'Cause the senator man took a bribe in hand
      And went and shipped my job to New Delhi

      I get by (got it good, got it good)
      I barely get by (got it good, got it good)
      I barely get by
      I laugh not to cry
      I stay a little high
      I ain't gonna lie
      I barely get by
      I laugh not to cry
      I stay a little high
      I ain't gonna lie (got it good)

      Party people in the place to be
      Put your hands in the sky if you barely getting by
      It's on and on till the brake of dawn
      Got to keep the rent paid and the power on
      Yes yes y'all and it never stops
      I don't trust the government
      I don't trust no cops
      I dip and I dive and I socialize
      I struggle and I strive just to stay alive

      I get by (got it good, got it good)
      I barely get by (got it good, got it good)
      I barely get by
      I laugh not to cry
      I stay a little high
      I ain't gonna lie
      I barely get by
      I laugh not to cry
      I stay a little high
      I ain't gonna lie (got it good)
