Mose Allison – Gettin There lyrics

People ask me questions 'bout the way I've spent my life.
Thirty years in showbiz, only had one wife.
Limousines an' swimmin' pools, I didn't get my share,
But I'm not downhearted. I am not downhearted.
I'm not downhearted, but I'm gettin' there.
I'm gettin' there. I'm gettin' there.

Did you ever get the feeling you've been taken for a ride?
The big ones eat the little ones and there's no place left to hide.
Just don't drink the water. Try not to breathe the air.
But I'm not discouraged. I am not discouraged.
I'm not discouraged, but I'm gettin' there.
I'm gettin' there. I'm gettin' there.

No matter how I'm feelin' I still propose a toast.
If you're almost successful, you're better off than most.
If I was sellin' fantasy, I'd be a millionaire.
But I'm not disillusioned. I am not disillusioned.
I'm not disillusioned, but I'm gettin' there.
I'm gettin' there. I'm gettin' there.
