Podcast: “Leave Me, I’ll get by”

Leave Me I’ll Get By is a song written in 1990 and I finally got enough skills together as Minnellium to record it in 2004. Now there’s a learning curve for you.

Lyrics:
Did you ever find yourself walking down the street
Thinking you looked as cool as the other side of the pillow?
And did you ever look at your feet, and wonder where you came from
And try to think your way back into your past? (It’ll never last)

But if you Leave me, I’ll get by.
Leave me – I’ll get by.
____

Did you ever wander along a lonely road
just to find yourself back to from where you came?
And have you ever wondered what it could be that attracts me to you?
Did you ever look in a mirror down on your face the way I do?

But if you Leave me, I’ll get by.
Leave me – I’ll get by.

Then upon a seaside postcard
You will paint around until it looks like a farmyard
And you’ll see that right there – in your room –
The animals are there….

And not a minute to soon.
Not a minute too soon.
____

So if you ever why it is I love and why I never told you… oh why?
And have you ever wondered what it could be that’s attractive
to a young person like me in your messed up personality….
I dunno. I don’t know.

Leave me, I’ll get by.
Leave me, I’ll get by.

    A classic song and reminds me of the Inspekta Spencer days! Great to see it posted – and not a minute to soon. Downloading as I type!
