People always coming up to me,
And asking â€œDolly whatâ€™s 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.
Youâ€™d better get to living, Givinâ€™
Donâ€™t forget to throw in a little forgivingâ€™
And lovinâ€™ on the way.
Youâ€™d better get knowing, showing
A little bit more concerned about where youâ€™re going
Just a word unto the wise.
Youâ€™d better get to livinâ€™.
A girlfriend came to my house,
Started cryinâ€™ on my shoulder,
Sunday evening. (Better Get To Living)
Sheâ€™s she was spinninâ€™ such a sad tale I couldnâ€™t believe
The yarn that she was wavingâ€™
So negative the words she had to say,
I said â€œIf I had a violin Iâ€™d Playâ€
I said youâ€™d better get to living, give in
Be willing and forgivinâ€™
Cos our healinâ€™ 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 youâ€™d better get to living
Your lifeâ€™s 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And your wardrobe is way outdated,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
Youâ€™d better get to living, givinâ€™
A little more thought about been a little more willing,
To make a better way (make a better Way)
Donâ€™t 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 youâ€™ll get to livinâ€™
The day were born we start to die,
So donâ€™t waste one minute of this life,
Get to livin! (Get to livinâ€™)
Share your dreams and share your Laughter and Make some points.
For the great hereafter. (Get to Livinâ€™)
Better start caring,
Better start sharing
Better start tryinâ€™,
Better start smilinâ€™
And you better get to livinâ€™.
