Raconteurs, The - Steady, As She Goes Lyrics

Find yourself a girl, and settle down
Live a simple life in a quiet town

Steady as she goes (steady as she goes)
Steady as she goes (steady as she goes)
So steady as she goes

Your friends have shown a kink in the single life
You've had too much to think, now you need a wife

Steady as she goes (steady as she goes)
So steady as she goes (steady as she goes)
Well here we go again, you've found yourself a friend, that knows you well
But no matter what you do, you'll always feel as though you tripped and fell

So steady as she goes

When you have completed what you thought you had to do
And your blood's depleted to the point of stable glue

Then you'll get along
Then you'll get along

Steady as she goes (steady as she goes)
So steady as she goes (steady as she goes)
Well here we go again, you've found yourself a friend that knows you well
But no matter what you do, it always feels as though you tripped and fell
So steady as she goes
Steady as she goes

Settle for a world neither up or down
Sell it to the crowd that's gathered round
Settle for a girl neither up or down
Sell it to the crowd that's gathered round

So steady as she goes (steady as she goes)
Steady as she goes (steady as she goes)
Steady as she goes (steady as she goes)
So steady as she goes (steady as she goes)

Steady as she goes
Are you steady now?
Steady as she goes
Are you steady now?
Steady as she goes
Are you steady now?
Steady as she goes
Are you steady now?
Steady as she goes

    bro i was playing the beginning riff on guitar and i could not figure out what song it was. i never even learned the song i just started playing it

  10. Alejandro Angeles

    Great song. Exact same chord progression of Nirvana's Rape Me. Still a great song.

  11. LabeledNotOrIouS

    Thought this was a white stripes song, could be vice versa though

  12. TheMaeq1der

    Primo. This sing is timeless and by far underrated.

  14. \\Cheech Unlimited\\

    Jack White is God

  15. Gunzee

    Can someone help me find a song with the same title.
    I can't remember it well, the vocals are of a guy singing /talking without pause.
    The video is weird, it shows a girl going through her day. She in a routine until she finds a sewing machine and makes a magical dress, multi colored. A guy notices her and begins following her through a park. In the end she kneels at a pyramid, a door opens and she becomes like yarn & steps into the door. Which falls into the ground after her, the girl is cute with short hair no make up. The guy is generally good looking, wearing denim and had a mustache.
    The video is low quality, like they used a normal home video camera but it's shot well.


    Gunzee not sure but reminds me of cage the elephant- shake me down

  16. sarcastian

    Imagine if the lyrics were "steady gettin' hoes" 😎

    Who came here because they listened to this song a fucking decade or so ago and want a refresher. Yeah, that's me you dumb shit kids. Stick to your gucci gang shit, you don't deserve real music.


    Dude. The fact that you got all your music from mainstream radio and TV shows, just like kids today makes you just as bad. If something has rhythm, it is REAL music. Music does not care if you do not like it. Electric guitars are electronically manipulated and the tone that comes out of the speaker is not the real instrument. Old people used to think Electric guitars was not "real music" either for the same reason you think beat makers and EDM producers have no talent. Yet if you try going on FL Studio or Reason to make a trance song or an Aphex Twin song by yourself, you will not be able to do shit. You will suck at it. It takes longer to make entire songs by yourself, coordinating every instrument, designing your own sounds and instrument to the most minute of details using scientific theories and wave forms. How is it real music if you rely on one sound, one instrument and cant play anything else? How is it real music if you can only express yourself one way as a guitarist? Or a drummer? How can you convey your emotions and make a song that truly comes from you if all you have is a drum set? People do not need bands anymore. There are way better rock bands than this coming out nowadays anyway, "real music" as the uneducated like you would call it. But you would never find it because you are just as stupid as Lil Pump fans and do not have the musical aptitude to find today's good metal and rock bands.

  25. Dark Swim

    Jack White = Midas Touch

  26. Alex Vendetta

    Jack White's music always has some of the most pronounced bass lines. Like straight up guiter is just the bass' backup

  27. Christine Parker Civello

    I’ve heard this song and have seen the video a billion times. It looks and sounds fresh every time.

  28. Tiffany Kinsel

    I'm waiting on leather face to run out of that creepy house.....

  29. Lexie Larsen

    Lead singer reminds me of revenge era Gerard way

  30. Taylor Gal

    good song

  32. Severus Snape

    This happened to video of Why Do We Build The Wall as well ... PhilosophyTube fans hijack everything 😊

  33. Emma Byrne

    I love how many people are here because of philosophy tube, and that Olly has single(?)- handedly turned this into a queer anthem.

  34. Slimeee •

    This song was on some game i had on Nintendo DS till this day i can’t figure what game 😂

    KnightOfHanoi829 Productions

    Slimeee • guitar hero?

  35. YukiTatsuki

    Philosophy Tube brought me here.

  36. ZanicFn

    Her from psych

  37. D00m-Mantia

    Fuck Philosophy Tube and his garbage cover of this song

  38. tremisanthrope

    As I get older, I appreciate this song more and more

  39. Gelatinous Cube

    Sorry this is now a bi anthem. I don't make the rules.

    Tasnim Rashid

    OK but the emo bi anthem will still be girls/girls/boys

    Emma Byrne

    Personally I think it fits as an anthem for queer people in general


    Well it's an anthem for people who generally can't seem to settle down, you don't have to exclude anybody

    Richard Perry

    So Bucks Fizz 'Makin your mind up' probably isn't.


    @iLikeNoodles yall Straights aren't being excluded, thats not how it works

  40. Lewis Smith

    Why is nobody talking about the mouthfeel

    Nick Snrub

    We are! It's all we ever talk about anymore.

  41. Angelina Walters

    Dammit Olly you got this stuck in my head again after years of not hearing it.

    James Robertson

    Go listen to Billie Eilish sing Ocean Eyes. You'll think there's an implant in your brain for the next two weeks.

  50. Julia Tetzlaff

    This music is genious I listen since I was 13 and it reminds me of my first stolen-from-dad drinks and messing around breaking things in empty places

  51. Bernard5972

    lol no risk of clipping here, well at least in the final. it would be nice to have a small cheap line-amp huh. but the way it's set up, i couldn't probably break these speakers if i tried. i did ask for that. if i was in linux i could go to 125%. but you know, it's rocket science. maybe if we each contributed a minute, we could get to the 500 minutes required to implement 125% perfectly in windows.

  52. Bernard5972

    i think they like interlacing artifacts

  53. Juan Diego Garzon Martinez

    Didn't know that Skrillex was the bass player of this band

  72. Miguel Piedrola

    Really good. I didn't know them and they have pleasantly surpised me.
