You Can Get By (King Emily)

She was thru with all of the women he use to do See each morning he left her cryin' But she stays just a-hoping that he might change So then she put up with all his lying Well, hey lady your gonna be okay, But he aint' worth what you go thru Oh no, oh no So pick yourself up off the floor That's no way for you to fight He won't be hurtin' you no more Trust yourself you can get by She was just a baby in her mother eyes And then he came and how fast things change She used to tell her friends how he was a perfect guy Until that day he struck her face But. hey baby your gonna be ok But that's not love that's hurtin' you Oh no, oh no So pick yourself up off the floor That's no way for you to fight He won't be hurtin' you no more Trust yourself you can get by You can get by So pick yourself up off the floor That's no way for you to fight He won't be hurtin' you no more Trust yourself you can get by Why would you let somebody treat you that way? When its only fear that gets you to stay You've got to be strong And know that without him your life carries on
