Blues Traveler – Gotta Get Mean lyrics

Music & lyrics: chan kinchla, brendan hill & john popper

In this vale of toil and sin
You're stuck in a race that you just can't win
Just take a look around and it's so obscene
But that's the way it is, so you gotta get mean

Don't waste your time wondering why
Cause the only thing you know is that someday you'll die
You gotta get tough, you gotta get lean
But best of all you get to gotta get mean

You give me an itch and I'll blow you away
It's part of this dangerous game that we play
You'd do the same if you'd seen what I'd seen
C'est la vie, mon cherie, ya gotta get mean
