Everlast - I Get By Lyrics




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
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

[Chorus:]
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

[Chorus:]
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

[Chorus:]
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)

  41. Mark Hammond

    This guy couldn't hack it in rap cuz he was a pussy so he changed to different music. What a loser.

  42. Mark Hammond

    Listen to his voice it sounds like he's gargling cum.

  43. peter munoz

    The shit he's talking about is the truth. We need to stop this left versus right/democrat versus republican shit needs to stop NOW. We need to start thinking and acting like Americans. United as a people now before it's too late, and we're in a civil was against each other. We need to all realize that; because left or right we all got to live, survive and take care of each other, our children, our future together or we will not be united together. Because no anybody with on this Planet. The Chinese, the Germans could give a shitless about us. We need to be one united people again, so listen to Everlast and enjoy and think about getting past that divided country stuff.

  44. Robin Wisdom

    This is the right version.

  45. Kenny Gottlieb

    This guy Will break slim

    Mark Hammond

    This guy will suck Eminem's prick.

    Mark Hammond

    This guy is a bytch plain and simple.

    Mark Hammond

    This guy would drink Eminem's load. That's why his voice sounds the way it does. Because he loves loads.
