"Get Over It"

"I turn on the tube and what do I see
A whole lotta people cryin' 'Don't blame me'
They point their crooked little fingers at everybody else
Spend all their time feelin' sorry for themselves
Victim of this, victim of that
Your momma's too thin; your daddy's too fat

Get over it
Get over it
All this whinin' and cryin' and pitchin' a fit
Get over it, get over it

You say you haven't been the same since you had your little crash
But you might feel better if I gave you some cash
The more I think about it, Old Billy was right
Let's kill all the lawyers, kill 'em tonight
You don't want to work, you want to live like a king
But the big, bad world doesn't owe you a thing

Get over it
Get over it
If you don't want to play, then you might as well split
Get over it, Get over it

It's like going to confession every time I hear you speak
You're makin' the most of your losin' streak
Some call it sick, but I call it weak

You drag it around like a ball and chain
You wallow in the guilt; you wallow in the pain
You wave it like a flag, you wear it like a crown
Got your mind in the gutter, bringin' everybody down
Bitchin' about the present and blame it on the past
I'd like to find your inner child and kick its little ass

Get over it
Get over it
All this bitchin' and moanin' and pitchin' a fit
Get over it, get over it

Get over it
Get over it
It's gotta stop sometime, so why don't you quit
Get over it, get over it"

~~ The Eagles

I couldn't get to a rock concert, so one came to me, via Tom and Hollywood Video. The Eagles, "Hell Freezes Over". Pretty mellow music for the most part, but there was some good rock in it as well.

This 'Get Over It' song was particularly fun - and oh so true. All in all, with the kids in bed, the sky black and sorta starry, the work for the weekend done, bellies full and minds blown, The Eagles came through just fine for Tom and me.

And now it's Monday, and it all goes around again. Who knows what will happen this week, this day, this hour? Exciting to think about, scary, too, this life, this uncertainty, this learning adventure.

Jumping in feet first!

Sorry to hear it's hot where you are, WC. Hate the hot....makes me feel like a zombie.....durhhh. Glad you liked the lyrics!

And thanks to you, too, Leisel, for your niceness about this post. I'm going to have to look it up on YouTube, too!

That's interesting. I'm an Eagles fan, and definitely I'm not a fan of afternoon TV....

Cherie said...

You and me, Deanna, you and me...... :-)

Politically incorrect, I like that. This is a fun post Cherie. The Eagles song is great- a little sarcasm, a little bite, a lot of venting and wit. I have never heard of it before either. I never know what I will filnd when I come here. It's one of the reasons I love your blog.Thanks for another unusual post!

Z and I LOVE that song!! Whenever someone gets whiny, we start singing the chorus.

We watched that concert on TV, when it first came out. We had to explain the title to the kids.

Did you hear that the Eagles are coming out with a new album in the next few months?

Cherie said...

Hey, tshs, you and Z know a good thing when you hear it! And noooo, I did not know that the Eagles have a new album out, but I do now and will be watching. Thanks for the heads up!
