Analysis of Attitude To Give It To Get

Lawrence S. Pertillar 1947 (Connecticut)



Expect,
Your attitude to give it to get.
Expect,
Your attitude to give it to get.
Expect your attitude to give it to get.
To then believe to get away with it.

Too many walk around,
With chips sitting on their shoulders.
As they grow older.
To accept to believe no one else,
Should do the same.
Too many walk around,
Finding fault with others.
Done to do to claim another to blame.

Well,
Expect your attitude to give it to get it...
Back.
Unchanged.
You can expect that attitude to give it,
Back.
The same.
You can expect that attitude to give it,
To get it right back.
As yours to claim.

Expect that attitude to give it,
With a mood attached.
Right back.
Expect that attitude to give it,
With a mood attached.
Right back!

Right back!
With a head that's tilted.
And eyes to roll!
