With all you do your attitude just seems to be so good how do you keep it
Well I'm not the Dalai
Lama but I'll try
To offer up a few words of advice
You better get to livin' givin' don't forget to throw
In a little forgivin' and lovin' on the way
You better get to knowin' showin'
A little bit more concerned about where you're goin'
Here's a word unto the wise you better get to livin' ah ah ah
A girlfriend came to my house started cryin' on my shoulder sunday evening
She was spinnin' such a sad tale I could not believe the yarn that she was weavin'
So negative the words she had to say
I said If I had a violin I'd play
I said you'd better get to livin' givin' be willing and forgivin'
'Cos all healing has to start with you
You better stop whining pining get your dreams in line and
Then just shine design refine until they come true and you better get to livin'
Your life's a wreck your house is a mess
And your wardrobe way outdated
All your plans just keep on falling through
Overweight and under paid under appreciated
I'm no guru but I'll tell you this I know is true
You better get to livin' givin' a little more thought about
Bein' a little more willin' to make a better way
Don't sweat the small stuff keep your chin up
Just hang tough and if it gets too rough
Fall on your knees and pray and do that everyday then you'll get to livin', ah ah
The day we're born we start to die
Don't waste one minute of this life get to livin'
Share your dreams and share your laughter
Make some points for the great here after
Better start carin' better start sharin'
Better start tryin' better start smiling
And you better get to livin'
