Get-get-get in line and settle down.
Get-g-Geeeet, in line and settle down.

What's your 20? (Do you Copy?)
Where's your brain (Do you copy?)
Take it in to check you out
Concerned about your wherabouts
Copy that (Do you copy?)
You're acting strange (Do you copy?)
So tell me what is going on
It's so heavy, I bet

I'm Fine (and nothing's gonna knock this girl down)
I'm hella positive for real
I'm all good, no
I'm Fine (and nothing's gonna knock this girl down)
It's kind of complicated that's for sure.

But you can see it in my eyes
You can read it on my lips
I'm trying to get a hold on this.
And I really mean it this time
And you know it's such a trip
Don't get me started
I'm trying to get a hold on this.

Get-get-get in line and settle down
Get-g-Geeeet, in line and settle down.

No big deal (I can handle it)
It'll bounce off me (I can handle it)
Been around the block before
Doesn't matter anymore
Here we go again (Are you kidding me?)
Are you insane? (Are you kidding me?)
Underneath the avalanche
So heavy again

I'm Fine (and nothing's gonna knock this girl down)
I'm hella positive for real
I'm all good, no
I'm Fine (and nothing's gonna knock this girl down)
It's kind of complicated that's for sure.

But you can see it in my eyes
You can read it on my lips
I'm trying to get a hold on this.
And really mean it this time
And you know it's such a trip
Don't get me started
I'm trying to get a hold on this.

Get-get-get in line and settle down
Get-g-Geeeet, in line and settle down.

I'm a rough and tough
I'm a rough and tough
And nothing's gonna knock this girl down

I'm a rough and tough
I'm a rough and tough
And nothing's gonna knock this girl down

I'm a rough and tough
I'm a rough and tough
And nothing's gonna knock this girl down

But you can see it in my eyes
You can read it on my lips
I'm trying to get a hold on this.
And I really mean it this time
And you know it's such a trip
Don't get me started
I'm trying to get a hold on this.

Get-get-get in line and settle down
Get-g-Geeeet, in line and settle down.
Get-get-get in line and settle down
Get-g-Geeeet, in line and settle down.
Get-get-get in line and settle down
Get-g-Geeeet, in line and settle down

    I love how this song is so light and catchy on the surface, but when you listen to it, it's all about a battle with drugs. The reggae ska feel is really funky too - it's so danceable.

    Great song, quite different to old no doubt, but still great.

    People have been telling me to get in line and settle down my whole life. Always been a tough girl and an emotional girl too. I know that about me. I know very much who i am and what i want. This song is awesome because it seems like everyone else is a little over whelmed by such a force of nature. Wow she's tough and knows herself we need to get her in line and settle her down. I have tired to be something i'm not and it doesn't work
    i can try all i want to pump the brakes and settle down and get in line but it never really works! For that i'm kinda gald! Who wants to obey all these rules all the time anyways?

    She has some stuff that has happened to her. She will get through it. Its a positive song. For me, i relate it to getting through a health scare because of not living a healthy lifestyle. Prob totally out there meaning, but it works for me!
