get what you want

© words and music by garnett betts

Talk at the counter, they say you’re crazy

You could get what you want for this place

Fifty years, hanging over that grill

Aren’t you ready for a change?

You can ask what you will, and get what you want.

Even the church rezoned, now it’s Palm Towers

And all her red bricks are gone

Long as you can stand alone – we are the hours

You can ask what you will, and get what you want.

Chorus:

Times change like we stand and wait

But when the streets are empty and it’s not too late

To the last square foot of the neighbourhood

We’re the pilgrims here, still it’s understood

You can ask what you will, You can ask what you will

You can ask what you will, and get what you want.

We are the alleys, we are the street

On the endangered list but still on our feet

You can ask what you will, and get what you want.

Repeat Chorus:

Bridge:

One man’s art is a tower of steel

Years to plan and make it real

Another man’s art is holding on to what he’s got

My friend you’re the last hold out

The last hold out on a long chrome block

Repeat Chorus

We are the alleys, we are the street

On the endangered list but still on our feet

You can ask what you will, and get what you want

Maybe you got what you want
