Must be getting early, clocks are running late,

Paint-by-number morning sky, looks so phony.

Dawn is breaking everywhere, light a candle, curse the glare,

Draw the curtains, I don't care, 'cause it's alright.

2. I see you've got your fist out, say your piece and get out,

Yes I get the gist of it, but it's all right.

Sorry that you feel that way, the only thing I meant to say,

Every silver lining's got a touch of grey.

Bridge 2

It's a lesson to me, the deltas and the east and the freeze

The ABCs, we all think of, and try to give a little love

3. You know the rent is in arrears, the dog has not been fed in years,

It's even worse than it appears, but it's all right.

The cow is giving kerosene, kid can't read at seventeen,

The words he knows are all obscene, but it's all right.

 

Chorus

 

4. The shoe is on the hand it fits, there's really nothing much to it

Whistle through your teeth and spit, 'cause, it's all right.

Oh, well, a Touch of Grey, kind of suits you anyway

That was all I had to say, it's all right.

We will get by, we will get by

We will get by, we will survive
