​Got To Get Better

This song is by Elkie Brooks and appears on the album Pearls III (1991).

Everyone you talk to all say the same
You take one step forward, two steps back again
My best friend told me when I saw her yesterday
There has to be a changing, I can't go on this way
She's losing control and she's got no place to go
I wanna help her desperately but all I can say is

It's got to get better
Can't get any worse
Got to get better
Can't get any worse

My family depend on me, I don't intend to let them down
I ain't gonna let them see me cry 'cause a few hard times we found
My mother told me before she passed away
Something's bound to turn up, hear the words I say
It's hard to keep a smiling face when they're knocking at your door
I turn around and I'm thankful, one thing that's for sure that

It's got to get better
Can't get any worse
Got to get better
Can't get any worse

Don't let it get you down
Don't let it get you down

Living on a knife edge, the rent is due today
The bank man's on your tail again, you can't afford to pay
I sympathise, I've been there, my heart goes out to you
It all seems so unfair to me, you don't get your fair due
Nothing is easy but the more you seem to try
We're all in it together and none of us can hide

It's got to get better
Can't get any worse
Got to get better
Can't get any worse

Don't let it get you down
Don't let it get you down

Got to get better
Can't get any worse
Got to get better
It can't get any worse

Got to get better
It can't get any worse
Got to get better
Can't get any worse

Don't let it get you down

(Time for a brandy)
