We’ve Gotta Get Out of This Place – Animals

“We’ve Gotta Get Out of This Place” Lyrics

In this dirty old part of the city
Where the sun refused to shine
People tell me there ain’t no use in tryin’
My little girl, you’re so young and pretty
And one thing I know is true
You’re gonna die before your time is due
See my daddy in bed a-dyin’
See his hair turnin’ gray
He’s been workin’ and slavin’ his life away, I know
That he’s been workin’ yeah
Every day, slavin’ his life away
He’s been workin’ baby, and
Workin’
Workin’
Workin’
We gotta get out of this place
If it’s the last thing we ever do
We gotta get out of this place
Girl, there’s a better life for me and you, mmm yeah
My little girl, you’re so young and pretty
And one thing I know is true
You’ll be dead before your time is due, yes you will

See my daddy in bed a-dyin’
See his hair been turnin’ gray
He’s been workin’ and slavin’ his life away, yes I know
He’s been workin’, yeah
He’s been workin’, yeah
Woaaaah! He’s been
Workin’
Workin’
Workin’
Workin’
We gotta get out of this place
If it’s the last thing we ever do
We gotta get out of this place
Girl, there’s a better life for me and you
Ooh, ooh baby

We gotta get out of this place
If it’s the last thing we ever do
We gotta get out of this place
Girl, there’s a better life for me and you
Oooh, you know it baby
And I know it too, baby
Oh yeah
