The go-getter
I'll be the go-getter
Yes I am
I'll be the go-getter
That's my plan
The go-getter

Hi-fi boom box
Pretty girl in bobby sox
After party in a hotel room
Pretty soon there will be no moon
Stumble home in the pouring rain
Let the water eat my worried brain
Some days I just can't get along
I need a head to leave my shoulders on

Palm trees
Flat broke disease
And LA has got me
On my knees
I am the bluest of blues
Everyday a different way to lose
The go-getter
The go-getter
The go-getter

I gotta table at the Rainbow Room
I told my wife I'd be home soon
Big ships approaching the docks
I got my hi-fi boom box
Mashed potatoes in cellophane
I see my life going down the drain
Hold me, baby, don't let go
Pretty girls have to soften the blow

Yeah

Palm trees
Flat broke disease
LA has got me
On my knees
I am the bluest of blues
Everyday a different way to lose
The go-getter
The go-getter
The go-getter
I'll be the go-getter

That's my plan
That's who I am
The go-getter
The go-getter
