Like many people today, I worry about my finances and my future and the future for my family and for the world in general. This song touches upon these glum issues. However, the message is ultimately positive, saying we will get by no matter what.

Had to remove the sample of Christopher Walken from Saturday Night Live as it was going to cost me $10,000! Shame.


Sick and tired of trying to make ends meet.
Putting bad food on the table and cheap shoes on their feet.
Trying to wake from this nightmare but at the same time trying to sleep.
So tired of counting pennies sick and tired of counting sheep.

Pointing fingers and telling me I just don't know
how the world works and how I'm gonna make some dough.
Think that I'm bitter, your thinking's all wrong, think I'd be happy with zero's this long?
If I was a rich man, I'd still be singing this song.


We'll get by, we'll get by.
If tomorrow is like today and today is like yesterday.
We'll get by, we'll get by.
If the future's like the past and each day is like the last then we'll get by.

So damn weary of all this stuff in my head.
With talk of conspiracies filling me up with dread.
We're living in a nightmare but I can't go back to sleep.
So tired of the truthers, sick and tired of the sheep.

Do, do do do....


As before.

Grew up in the 70's & 80's listening to an eclectic mix of stuff on the radio and 50's and 60's music that my mum would play.

I soon found a love of anything with a strong groove and soul and became a B-Boy. I always sang a bit, but I made US East Coast inspired rap music on the unlikely East Coast of the UK.

Returning to funk and soul, I inch closer to creating the sounds I hear in my head.
