Stiff Little Fingers – Gotta Gettaway lyrics

Gotta gotta gettaway, gotta gotta gettaway
You know there ain't no street like home

But they don't speak the same language as you

To make you feel so all alone
Plenty of folk to tell you what to do
They wanna have me here
Hold me down fasten and tie
But the cars are all flashing me
I feel life passing me by
Have me and hold me near
Bright lights are passing me
My father argued and my mother begged
The fuss is buzzing in my head

But gotta stretch them break them get myself free
It's not their words ain't tugging at me

Gotta gotta gettaway, gotta gotta gettaway
I'm leaving home(Chorus)
