We Gotta Get Out of This Place [Animals]

[Covers]

 

Lyrics

in this dirty old part of the city
where the sun refused to shine
people tell me there ain't no use in tryin'

now my girl you're so young and pretty
and one thing i know is true
you'll be dead before your time is due, i know

watch my daddy in bed a-dyin'
watched his hair been turnin' grey
he's been workin' and slavin' his life away
oh yes i know it

(yeah!) he's been workin' so hard
(yeah!) i've been workin' too, baby
(yeah!) every night and day
(yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!)

we gotta get out of this place
if it's the last thing we ever do
we gotta get out of this place
'cause girl, there's a better life for me and you

now my girl you're so young and pretty
and one thing i know is true, yeah
you'll be dead before your time is due, i know it

watch my daddy in bed a-dyin'
watched his hair been turnin' grey, yeah
he's been workin' and slavin' his life away
i know he's been workin' so hard

(yeah!) i've been workin' too, baby
(yeah!) every day baby
(yeah!) whoa!
(yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!)

we gotta get out of this place
if it's the last thing we ever do
we gotta get out of this place
girl, there's a better life for me and you
somewhere baby, somehow i know it

we gotta get out of this place
if it's the last thing we ever do
we gotta get out of this place
girl, there's a better life for me and you
believe me baby
i know it baby
you know it too
