Things Are Getting Better

lyrics

When I met you I was drinking daily
Now its only the six days a week
When I met you I was in the gutter
Now I'm nearly right back on my feet
When I met you I was pretty broken
Now I reckon that I'm nearly fixed
When I met you I was mostly gurning
Now I'm grinning like an idiot

And things are getting better,
A little bit at a time
Things are getting better,
So let me see that smile

When I met you I was such a jaikbaw
Now I'm pure respectable 'n class
Used to swig my wine out of the bottle
Now I sip that Bucky from a glass
When I met you I was really couthy
Effing and c-ing all the time
Now I'm mostly quoting philosophy
And reimagining my paradigm

And things are are getting better,
A little bit at a time
Things are getting better,
So let me see that smile
Things are getting better,
There's sun shining through the clouds
Things are getting better,
Ever since you’ve been around

When I met you I was pretty lonely
Now I got pure hunners of new pals
Used to lie and stare at the ceiling
But now I'm pure looking to the stars
Never used to look after ma body
But the other day I even ate some fruit
Used to hate waking in the morning
Now I'd take on the world if I could
