Better Year (Pierce Adrienne)

Wally’s all night grocery is doing well Magazines and chocolate can't be hard to sell Dollar for the news of disaster and war Sometimes I wonder what I buy it for It's gonna be a better year Better than the last one dear Take it easy, it's all right Take it easy, it‚s all right This little apartment has a pretty good view Neighbor’s kids are fighting but they always do Watching as they pile into the yellow bus Can't believe next year there will be three of us Gonna be a better year Better than the last one dear Take it easy, it's all right Take it easy, it‚s all right And if the weight on your back is too much for you Do what all the happy people do Hold the one you love by your side And let it ride It's all right, take it easy Days have gotten short, the amaryllis blooms There’s a tranquil blue light in these tiny rooms Every day we hear of a new tragedy So I am surprised happiness has crept up on me Everything will be ok Feel it in my bones today Take it easy, it's all right Take it easy, it‚s all right And if the weight on your back is too much for you Do what all the happy people do Hold the one you love by your side And let it ride It’s all right, take it easy It’s all right, take it easy It’s all right
