Beverley Knight - In Your Shoes Lyrics




What's the sense in all the drama?
Hate is such a waste of time;
I just want to live the good life, the good life
You got your game, I got mine

If I was in your shoes
I would handle my business
If I was in your shoes
Instead of trying to see what mine is
If I was in your shoes
Why don't you sleep at night
Get up and get a life.. Of your own?
Why don't you...

Get yourself a life and make it work,
Make it work [x4]

Well I heard you got a problem
And it starts and ends with me..... Well
I don't think I got the answer, the answer
I can't stop your jealousy

If I was in your shoes
I would handle my business
If I was in your shoes
Instead of trying to see what mine is
If I was in your shoes
Why don't you sleep at night
Get up and get a life.. Of your own?
Why don't you...

Get yourself a life and make it work,
Make it work [x4]

I keep it "Superwoman" all the way
I work for everything I got
Oh, I'm just striving every day
And I can't help it if you're not...

If I was in your shoes
I would handle my business
If I was in your shoes
Instead of trying to see what mine is
If I was in your shoes
Why don't you sleep at night
Get up and get a life.. Of your own?
Why don't you...

Get yourself a life and make it work,
Make it work [x4]

  1. Robert Kijowski

    she owns this Orange Juice sample... making a great song even better.

  2. lennard

    how does this video only have 58k views when shit like swagger jagger probably has about 1m+ views

  3. Kayleighj1997

    how comes this wasn't really a song that got noticed?

  4. Taveus Hawkins

    Is it just me or does this woman look like Oleta Adams?

  5. Claire Elizabeth

    @Jaybrillzz i completly agree and im from scotland lol

  6. MikeyDornan

    why the fuck has she ruined 'Rip It Up'???

  7. elshiftos

    One of the best voices to grace this planet and they go and use autotune on her voice for the sake of fashion.....Grrrr! >:-(

  8. Nathan Crofton-Bond

    I prefer the version without Chipmunk.

  9. Sophiekooi

    Ehm yeah, why the discussion guys? It's a cool song, that's what matters. :)

  10. lennard

    Great tune, love it.

  11. Holly Murgatroyd

    Love this song

    Go Bev and Chipmunk :)

  12. Kate z

    She is fantastic, whatever she does!!!! you know nothing guys!!! how can even compare her to Whitney - where do you see the similarities???!!!!

  13. lefthandedspanner

    A truly talented artist can cover any song they want and not only pull it off, but make it their own in the process.

    Also, more commercial music needs a non-ironic non-gimmicky funk flavour like this.

  14. Rory Gilmore

    amazing

  15. scratchatune

    yep sampled around 1992

    had a few cuts and stuff but the main sample was the orange juice riff, sure its been looped another time so its kinda 3rd hand lol,, looks like beverly has realy used a lot of it but to excellent effect :)

  16. scratchatune

    remember this being sampled before yearrrrsss ago on a hip hop scratch track but beverly knight kiks arse and has made it her own,, chipmonk dunt do much for it and probly aint heard of edwin collins but i spose bevs being modern and stickin a rap over the sample, fair play.. over all its an 8/10 wudav been 9 but its a second hand idea to use the orange juice track :)

  17. Sam Dickinson

    Beverley Knight lacks originality?!?
    She's sampled, where's the problem. As a songwriter the hardest part to writing a song is the melody and lyrics, there are only a certain amount of chords and chord progressions you can use! So she's sampled, so what?! This is one the finest British singers we are talking about, surely once and a while in almost 15 years she is allowed to do a bit of sampling!!!!

  18. Lottie Evans

    i swear he says auntie bev? is it his auntie?

  19. Jessica Westgate

    not mad on her, but good song.

  20. Jam Nembhard

    lol he actually says auntie Bev....

  21. Imreadingthisaloud

    Edwin collins was the lead singer of Orange Juice at the time of that single

  22. Yasmin Drake
