The clip Get By feature Mos Def from Block Party (2005)
This morning I woke up
Feeling brand new and jumped up
Feeling my highs and my lows
In my soul and my goals
Just to stop smoking, stop drinking
But I've been thinking I've got my reasons
Just to get by, just to get by Just to get by, just to get by
One more time!
Some people cry Some people try
Just to get by, for a piece of the pie
We love to eat and get high
We deceive and we lie, and we keeping it fly
When people decide to keep a disguise
You can't see them We see the evil inside
The best people you find
Strong or feeble in mind I stay reading the signs
Yo, yo, yo, yo, I get by
Just to get by
I love y'all, Brooklyn. I love y'all. Word up.
Talib Kweli, Brooklyn, New York City.
Black Star Embassy is in the building.
Brooklyn, do you feel good tonight?
I know I do.
