​Get What You Give

This song is by Jonny Lang and appears on the album Long Time Coming (2003).

Father, father speaking out
Wants to tell you what it's all about
But you don't listen, you don't care
No one tells you what to do around here.

Got your girl, and it's all good
You're so tired of being so misunderstood
You'd love to get him off your back
You just want him to cut you some slack
You said, "He don't know where I'm at", yeah.

Get what you give, don't you know, don't you know
You get what you give
That's right, that's right
That's how it is, don't you know, don't you know.

Lost the key that locks your room
And momma's gonna be home soon
Guess this means you've got to lie
You ain't got no other alibi

Get what you give, don't you know, don't you know
You get what you give, yeah
That's how it is, don't you know, don't you know
(What you give, is what you get)

Tell your daddy you'll be fine
Not to worry you'll get by
Grow your hair and change your name
Pack your bags and runaway

Get what you give, don't you know, don't you know
You get what you give
That's how it is, don't you know, don't you know
You get what you give

Get what you give, don't you know, don't you know
You get what you give
That's how it is, don't you know, don't you know
You get what you give
