lyrics

Oh I’m a fortunate girl, I’m sure the sun and moon would agree
My lucky day, the kind a gypsy couldn’t foresee
I didn’t wish, didn’t pray, for love to come that day
I couldn’t have known, which way the wind decided to blow

Told myself to keep living
And one sweet day I’ll start getting while the gettin’s good
I’ll get while the gettin's good

When you’re down and out, don’t doubt, that’s not how things work out
Enjoy your time, 'cause things can turn on a dime
No fretting or regretting, your mind is all imaginary
Start getting to work, don’t look for a sign or a prophecy

Tell yourself to keep living
Then one sweet day you’ll start getting while the gettin's good
You’ll get while the gettin's good

Oh hear me little darling
No greater satisfaction than living like you want today
Your way, oh your way
Forge on little darling
The getting only comes directly from you, yeah you
It’s true

To yourself be true and you will find that you’re fortunate too
This is your dream and your life, no need to sacrifice

Tell yourself to keep living
And one sweet day you'll start getting while the gettin's good
You'll get while the gettin's good.

Know yourself and keep living
And everyday you’ll keep getting while the gettin's good
You'll get while the gettin's good.

You’ll get while the gettin’s good
You’ll get while the gettin’s good
You’ll get while the gettin’s good
You’ll get while the gettin’s good

Tell yourself to keep living
Know yourself and start giving
Everyday you’ll keep getting while the gettin's good

You’ll get while the gettin’s good
You'll get while the gettin’s good
You’ll get while the gettin’s good
You’ll get while the gettin’s good
