Sunday mornin' all dressed for church
Took a muddy road shortcut
Showed up all covered in dirt
Daddy took one look, 'bout to blow his top
I remember grandma sayin' it'll
Come out in the wash

Gotta get a little life on ya
Ain't always pretty, gonna get a little dirty
Gotta get a little life on ya, on ya, on ya
Gotta get a little life on ya

About five years later, I can't remember her name
Never say in comin' but man
I remember my first heartbreak
Grandma smiling with that beautiful wrinkled face
Said you ain't seen nothin' yet
That girl was just a taste

Gotta get a little life on ya
Ain't always pretty, might get a little dirty
Gotta get a little life on ya, on ya, said on ya
Gotta get a little life on ya

Girl, do you remember when we first met
Life hadn't had a chance to throw
All it had at us yet
Now it's ten years later
And you can do the math
But it all adds up to everything
That grandma said way back
Gotta get a little life on ya, get a little life on ya
Gotta go a little further, gotta live a little longer
It gets a little sweeter when you get a little life on ya

Gotta get a little life on ya
Ain't always pretty, gonna get a little dirty
Gotta get a little life on ya, said on ya, said on ya
Gotta get a little life on ya
