Get Me Some

Get Me Some was the first song I came up with while messing on the cigar box guitar, and in many ways is the catalyst for the whole album.

It was written out of frustration of being locked down and not able to go out socially or to play live. And also because I had just watched a documentary about Lemmy which kind of informed the rock n roll rebel element of the whole album.

Lyrics

I DON’T WANNA DIE
BEFORE MY TIME HAS COME
I JUST WANNA GO OUT – HAVE MYSELF A LITTLE FUN
LIFE IS MEANT FOR LIVING
I`M A GONNA GET ME SOME – GET ME SOME!

I NEED TO TELL YOU PEOPLE
YOU ONLY GOT ONE SHOT
DON’T SPEND YOUR LIFE PRETENDING
TO BE SOMETHING THAT YOU ARE NOT
THIS LIFE IS MEANT FOR LIVING
IT’S NOT ABOUT WHAT YOU HAVE GOT – SO WHAT YOU GOT MAN?

THIS AIN’T NO DRESS REHERSAL
YOU’RE ON THE STAGE RIGHT NOW
ARE YOU GONNA PLAY YOUR PART OR ARE YOU GONNA TAKE A BOW?
LIFE IS MEANT FOR LIVING
I`M A GONNA SHOW YOU HOW – SHOW YOU HOW!
