Lyrics
I once had a life, or rather life had me
I was one among the many
Or at least I seemed to be
Well, I read an old quotation in a book just yesterday
Said "You gonna reap just what you sow,
The debts you make you have to pay."

Can you get to that?
Can you get (I wanna know)
I wanna know if you can get to that
Can you get (well I wanna know)
I wanna know if you can get to that

I recollect with a-mixed emotions
All the good times we used to have
But you were making preparations
For the coming separation
And you blew everything we had

When you base your life on credit
And your loving days are done
Checks you signed with a-love and kisses
Later come back signed "insufficient funds"

Can you get to that?
Can you get (I wanna know)
I wanna know if you can get to that
Can you get (well I wanna know)
I wanna know if you can get to that

Can you get (I wanna know)
I wanna know if you can get to that
Can you get (well I wanna know)
I wanna know if you can get to that

When you base your life on credit
And your loving days are done
Checks you signed with love and kisses
Later come back signed "insufficient funds"

Now can you get to that y'all
Can you get (I wanna know)
I wanna know if you can get to that
Can you get (I wanna know)
I wanna know if you can get to that

Can you get (I wanna know)
I wanna know if you can get to that
Can you get (I wanna know)
I wanna know if you can get to that
