  • Git up, ya git down
    Ya git lost and then ya git found
    Sure as I'm sittin' here
    Sure as I'm sittin' here

    Ya git a laugh, ya git a cry
    Git'em all before you die
    Sure as I'm sittin' here
    Sure as I'm sittin' here

    Come on, sit down, git down
    A come on, sit down, git down
    Sure as I'm sittin' here
    Sure as I'm sittin' here

    You git the truth, ya git a lie
    'nough to make a grown man cry
    Sure as I'm sittin' here
    Sure as I'm sittin' here

    You git the light, you git the dark
    Fall in love, it breaks your heart
    Sure as I'm sittin' here
    Sure as I'm sittin' here

    Come on, sit down, git down
    A come on, sit down, git down
    Sure as I'm sittin' here
    Sure as I'm sittin' here

    All the ladies hypnotize you
    And all your friend
    Well they just patronize you
    Don't God look forgot?
    He's just sittin' here
    And I think he's got a plan
    But it's not too clear

    Mm mm mmm mm mm mm
    Mm mm mmm mm
    Sure as I'm sittin' here
    Sure as I'm sittin' here

    Mm mm mm mm mmm mm mm mm
    Mm mm mmm mm
    Sure as I'm sittin' here
    Sure as I'm sittin' here

    Come on, sit down, git down
    A come on, sit down, git down
    Sure as I'm sittin' here
    Sure as I'm sittin' here

    Come on, sit down, git down
    A come on, sit down, git down
    Sure as I'm sittin' here
