Come And Get It

Lyrics: Robert Hunter
Music: Robert Hunter

Solomon and Samson moving into town
One of 'em to build it up, and one to tear it down
Get a move on
Baby, I believe it's time to leave this town
Right or wrong
Movin' on

What I want I haven't got and what I got I need
I can take a kick or two but I don't want to bleed
Come and get it
Get it while the getting is really good
If you think you could
Stand on the rock where Moses stood

Kamikaze Cadillac, I can't afford the pace
Got an application in to join the human race
Get a move on
Honey, I believe it's time to leave this town
Right or wrong
Come and get it, let's move it on

Going where a dollar buys a dollar worth of change
Rolling down the lonesome road, feeling mighty strange
Come and get it
Get it while the getting is to be got
Come and get it
Later decide if you need it or not

Lay it down in detail, savage, cool and sweet
Just how low and lonesome did you get on Lonely Street?
Get a move on
I'm dead-ready to blow this town
Right or wrong
Movin' on

Help yourself to seconds but go easy on the cake
Till you get yourself a stomach for the supper that you make
Come and get it
Get it while the getting is to be had
Once you got it
If you don't like it, that's too damn bad

Laminated backstage universal pass
To a junkyard wonderland through the looking glass
Get a move on
I believe it's time to leave this town
Right or wrong
Movin' on

Some dogs got an hour, others got a day
I got seven minutes, five have slipped away
Come and get it
Get it while the getting is extra great
Come and get it
Hungry or not, get down and lick that plate

Come and get it, any fish is fine if you got good bait
Hesitation Blues, tell me, how long do I have to wait?
Comes the dawn
Beg your pardon, I'm movin' on

Come and get it
They're laughing on cue behind the green door
Come and get it
Question of mind over metaphor
Come and get it
Mose kicked the bucket; fact, he bought the store
Come and get it
Ain't gonna grieve his lord no more
Come and get it
Are you here after what I'm here for?
Come and get it
Jukin' in the channel till my chaps are sore
Come and get it
Hang your head and cry from four till late
Come and get it
I hope you can shimmy like your sister Kate
Come and get it
Might like to try it on at any rate
Come and get it
Ooo, shimmy like your sister Kate
Come and get it
Might like to try it on at any rate
