Song Description

When life is hurling lemons at you; when you're so tired you can't get out of bed; whatever life throws at you, you got to pick yourself up and do what you can with what you got!

Story Behind the Song

It's easy to want to give up-on a dream, on a path, a project, on finishing a song...especially when life throws you curve balls; this was written to instill hope and encouragement-to others and to myself

Lyrics

What You Got

what-what you got
what-what you got

when life is hurling lemons at your face
when you're an old rat and can't race
and you've just lost your mate to that obnoxious tramp
and doors are slamming

when all-all you can do
is hide till it's through

you got to do what you can with what you got
you gotta move to the groove with what you got
you got to go-o-o-o with the flow-just take it slow
and do what you can with what you got
what-what you got

when all you see are stacks of bills to pay
when you can't get out of bed today
and you've been told 30 days is all you get
and you just put down your cat

when all-all you can do
is cry till it's through

you got to do what you can with what you got
you gotta move to the groove with what you got
you got to go-o-o-o with the flow-just take it slow
and do what you can with what you got

whether you like it
or like it not
whether he loves you
or loves you not
it's what-what you got
what-what you got

when you no longer fit inside your jeans
when mom is total drama queen
and you're watchin someone else live your dreams
while tv's your family

when all you can do
is bre-ak in two

you got to do what you can with what you got
you gotta move to the groove with what you got
you got to go-o-o-o with the flow-just take it slow
and do what you can with what you got

you got to do what you can with what you got
you gotta move to the groove with what you got
you got to go-o-o-o with the flow-just take it slow
and do what you can with what you got
you can't be something that you're not
just go-o-o-o-o-o with what you got
what-what you got
