​Get Wise

This song is by Lindisfarne and appears on the album Back And Fourth (1978).

Hull

You think you're outrageous, you just talking too loud
You think you're a loner, you just one of the crowd
You think you're a flier, you never been off the ground
You say you're a seeker, you just looking around.

You gotta get wise (open your eyes)
Who gonna wait ? (don't leave it too late)
You gotta realise (you gotta get wise)
You gotta get wise.

You think you're a raver, you don't go any place
You think you're so sociable, you're just a social disgrace
The world owes your favours, I can see it in your face
You think you're a lion but you're just a rat in the race.

You gotta get wise (open your eyes)
Who gonna wait ? (don't leave it too late)
You gotta realise (you gotta get wise)
You gotta get wise (you gotta get wise).

You gotta get wise (open your eyes)
Who gonna wait ? (don't leave it too late)
You gotta realise (you gotta get wise)
You gotta get wise.

The world is a mistress but she's nobody's wife
You might own the living but you don't own the life
And life is forgiving, forgiving is free
This song is for you but it's also for me.

You gotta get wise (open your eyes)
Who gonna wait ? (don't leave it too late)
You gotta realise (you gotta get wise)
You gotta get wise (you gotta get wise).

You gotta get wise
Wise.
