You Get What You Get

written by vanessa collier

 

Makin’ lemonade outta life can get a little crazy

You try to use all the sour lemons but they dry up like raisins

Well you can count on your fingers all the ways you’ve been wronged

Whine and complain all day long

But you get, you get what you get, and you don’t get upset

 

Now, choosin’ to be happy, naw, it ain’t easy I won’t lie

To stare the cold world in the face and keep your joie de vivre

Well you can count on your fingers all the ways you’ve been wronged

Whine and complain all day long

But you get, you get what you get, and you don’t get upset

 

Now, I’m not sayin’ that you should just accept everything

Sometimes you gotta decide when to step in the ring

But don’t make life hell for those you’re around

Change it or accept it and stop makin’ that awful sound

Cause you get, you get what you get

Oh yes, you get, you get what you get

You get, you get what you get and you don’t get upset
