Workin On It

Album: The Good Parts (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • Here, Andy Grammer sings about trying to cut out those bad habits we all have.

    Smoking two packs a day, down to one
    It don't sound like much, but for him, that's a revelation
    You shoulda seen the pride in his eyes
    When he said how far he's come from where he was


    Grammer told Billboard: "We've all got vices, and we're all freakin' trying. And I love being able to sing it in an upbeat way. But I think in a show, to have people singing 'we're just working on it,' I love that."
