"I Get Along" as written by and Peter/barat Doherty....
You caught me in the middle dazed on the carpet
I was following the lines,
That move like more snakes thinking

Something ain't quite right
You got the devil on your side,
Standing to your right come on

You caught me in the middle dazed and confused
I was following the good steps,
Fancy free and footloose.

And something ain't quite right
But if you get them on your side,
Then we'll have a good time,
Come on now come on!

I get along, I get along, I get along, I get along
Get along

It's coming out my ears,
So baby here's what we'll do
There's four for you and nine for him,
And six for them and let me see

Now something ain't quite right
You can get them on your side,
Then we'll have a good time, come on!

I get along, I get along, I get along, I get along
Get along

I get along singing my song,
People tell me I'm wrong
Fuck 'em!

It's coming out my ears,
So baby here's what we'll do
There's four for you and nine for him,
And nine for them.

Now something ain't quite right
You got the devil on your side,
Standing to your right, come on!

I get along, I get along, I get along, I get along
And when I do, I'm singing, get along!

    General Commenti think the first verse is basically about doing lines of coke.

    "dazed on the carpet"... "following the lines"...

    yeah.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite evr songs. I think it is about pete and carl doing what ever they want, there drem is arcadia which is a land where you can do whatever you want and this is them saying they will do whatever they want. They dont care what otherpeople think they wil just get along doing there own things and as for everyone else.. wel fuck ' em!!

    This song alos fits in with pete and carls relationship once the libertines split up, ut was however written before everything went bad.

    It is great because its so accesible to people and people can relate to it, everyone has a feeling of rebellion and wanting to do whatever they want!!

    General Commentthe song is about a manager the libertines had, who eventually quit. the line "you got the devil on your side" is about her assisstant guy who the band disliked. when she quit they continued to make music "fuck em" (great line)
