mind the gap

I wrote the lyrics to match my latest backing track, 2019-03. When I tried to sing them I found I couldn't squeeze in all the lines, but needed an additional syllable in others. After rewriting and adapting it the resulting text it looks like this:


come on, don't wait too long
come on, get a move on

try to get out of the mess
see if you can stand the test

grit your teeth and get to it
it is stand or fall

hurry up
get off now
don't stay put
don't hang around
run away
watch your step
take the tube
mind the gap
watch your step
mind the gap

you have got no second chance
do not make a song and dance

you have got to go for broke
or you'd just go up in smoke

grit your teeth and get to it
it is stand or fall

hurry up
get off now
don't stay put
don't hang around
run away
watch your step
take the tube
mind the gap
watch your step
mind the gap

you have got no second chance
do not make a song and dance

you have got to go for broke
or you'd just go up in smoke

maybe take the tube
but do mind the gap



And here is the link to my first song after the album "rock-hard & soul":
