Emily King – You Can Get By lyrics

She was through with all of the women he used to do
Seein' each morning he left her cryin'
But she stays just hopin' that he might change
So then she put up with all his lyin'

Well, hey lady, you're gonna be okay
But he ain't worth what you go through
Oh no, no, no

So pick yourself up off the floor
That's no way for you to fight
He won't be hurtin' you no more
Trust yourself you can get by

She was just a baby in her mother's eyes
And then he came and how fast things change
She used to tell her friends how he was a perfect guy
Until that day he struck her face

But hey baby, you're gonna be okay
But that's not love that's hurtin' you
Oh no, no, no

So pick yourself up off the floor
That's no way for you to fight, fight
He won't be hurtin' you no more
Trust yourself you can get by

So pick yourself up off the floor
That's no way for you to fight, fight
He won't be hurtin' you no more
Trust yourself you can get by

Why would you let somebody treat you that way?
When it's only fear that beckons you to stay
You've got to be strong
And know that without him your life carries on
