The Wedding Present -
"Getting Better"

[ from the album "George Best Plus" (1997) ]

Lyrics

cover version - original recorded by The Beatles - written by Lennon/McCartney

I used to get mad at my school
The teachers who taught me weren't cool
Holding me down
Turning me round
Filling me up with the rules

Got to admit it's getting better
A little better all the time
I have to admit it's getting better
It's getting better since you've been mine

We used to be angry young men
Hiding our heads in the sand
Gave me the word
I finally heard
I'm doing the best that I can

I've got to admit it's getting better
A little better all the time
I have to admit it's getting better
It's getting better since you've been mine

Getting so much better all the time
It's getting better all the time
Better, better, better
It's getting better all the time
Better, better, better

I used to be cruel to my brother
I beat him and kept him apart from the things that he loved

Man I was mean
But I'm changing my scene
And I'm doing the best that I can

I admit it's getting better
A little better all the time
Yes, I admit it's getting better
It's getting better since you've been mine

Getting so much better all the time
It's getting better all the time
Better, better, better
It's getting better all the time
Better, better, better

Getting so much better all the time

(Stop)
