(Get a) Grip (on Yourself) Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Didn't have the money round to buy a Morry Thou
Been around and seen a lot to shake me anyhow
Begged and borrowed sometimes, I admit I even stole
The worse crime that I ever did was playing rock 'n roll.
Verse 2
But the money's no good
Just get a grip on yourself
But the money's no good
Just get a grip on yourself
Verse 3
Suffering convictions on a two-way stretch inside
The air in here is pretty thin, I think I'll go outside
Committed for insanity and crimes against the soul
The worst crime that I ever did was play some rock 'n roll.
Verse 4
But the money's no good
Just get a grip on yourself
But the money's no good
Just get a grip on yourself
Verse 5
And you should know
Verse 6
Now I find from week to week the sentence sticking fast
Turn the corner, rub my eyes and hope the world will last
Stranger from another planet welcome to our hole
Just strap on your guitar and we'll play some rock 'n roll
Verse 7
But the money's no good
Just get a grip on yourself
But the money's no good
Just get a grip on yourself
Verse 8
And you should know
