Dolly Parton
Get To Livin

Verse 1:
People always coming up to me,
And asking Dolly whats your secret?
With all you do your attitude just seems
To be so good how do you keep it?
Well am not the Dalai Lama but ill try,
To Offer up a few word of advice.

Youd better get to living, Givin
Dont forget to throw in a little forgiving
And lovin on the way.
Youd better get knowing, showing
A little bit more concerned about where youre going
Just a word unto the wise.
Youd better get to livin.

Verse 2:
A girlfriend came to my house,
Started cryin on my shoulder,
Sunday evening. (Better Get To Living)
Shes she was spinnin such a sad tale I couldnt believe
The yarn that she was waving
So negative the words she had to say,
I said If I had a violin Id Play

I said youd better get to living, give in
Be willing and forgivin
Cos our healin has to start with you.
You Better stop wining, pining,
Get your dreams in line and just
Shine, Design, Refine until They Come True.
And youd better get to living

Your lifes a wreck your house is a mess,
And your wardrobe is way outdated,
All your plans just keep on falling through,
Overweight and underpaid,
Am no guru but I tell you this I know is true

Youd better get to living, givin
A little more thought about been a little more willing,
To make a better way (make a better Way)
Dont sweat the small stuff, keep your chin up,
Just hang tough, and If it get too rough,
Fall on your knees and pray, and do that everyday
Then youll get to livin

The day were born we start to die,
So dont waste one minute of this life,
Get to livin! (Get to livin)
Share your dreams and share your Laughter and Make some points.
For the great hereafter. (Get to Livin)

Better start caring,
Better start sharing
Better start tryin,
Better start smilin
And you better get to livin.
