The Go Getter Lyrics

by The Black Keys

The go getter
I be the go getter
Yes, I am
I be the go getter
That's my plan
The go getter

Hi-fi boom box
Pretty girl in bobby socks
After party in a hotel room
Pretty soon there will be no more

Stumble home in the pouring rain
Let the water eat my worried brain
Some days I just can't get along
I need the head to leave my shoulders on

Palm trees, the flat broke disease
And L.A. has got me on my knees
I am the bluest of blues
Every day a different, different way to lose

The go getter
The go getter
The go getter

I got a table at the rainbow room
I told my wife I'd be home soon
Big ship approaching the docks
I got my hi-fi boom box

Mashed potatoes and cellophane
I see my life going down the drain
Hold me, baby and don't let go
Pretty girls have to soften the blow, yeah

Palm trees, the flat broke disease
And L.A. has got me on my knees
I am the bluest of blues
Every day a different way to lose

The go getter
The go getter
The go getter
I be the, the go getter

That's my plan
That's who I am
The go getter
Yeah, the go getter
