Lyrics

Acoustic demo

Stop your complaining
You're driving me crazy
I gave you so much
But you're just so lazy
I am the hottest around here
Brandy and cheap beer
I can do much better
With a change of weather

I got to get me mine
I got to help myself
I got to say goodbye
Don't need nobody else

You wish you never took me for granted
No one can rock you as much as I can
I am one of a kind
I'm leaving you behind
You gave me third class
Now I'm up in first class

I got to get me mine
I got to help myself
I got to say goodbye
Don't need nobody else

EWBAITE-era demo

Stop your complaining
You're driving me crazy
I gave you so much
But you're just so lazy
I am the hottest around here
Brandy and cheap beer
I can do much better
With a change of weather

I got to get me mine
You've got to get you yours
We got to go our ways
Chart out a brand new course
I got to get me mine
You got to to ride your horse
I've got to take some time
You got to get you yours
I got to get me mine

You wish you never took me for granted
No one can rock you as much as I can
I am one of a kind
I'm leaving you behind
You gave me third class
Now I'm up in first class

I got to get me mine
You've got to get you yours
We got to go our ways
Chart out a brand new course
I got to get me mine
You got to to ride your horse
I've got to take some time
You got to get you yours
I got to get me mine

Don't misunderstand me
Don't misapprehend me
I know that you're hurting
This is what we both need

I got to get me mine
You've got to get you yours
We got to go our ways
Chart out a brand new course
I got to get me mine
You got to to ride your horse
I've got to take some time
You got to get you yours
I got to get me mine
