Help Yourself


If you're gonna do
Do it right
Don't leave it overnight

If you're gonna help me
Help me now
Another ten minutes
Will be too late

Like a crying child
I need comfort now
Don't pick me up
When the tears are dry
On my face

Need someone
To help me
But not you
You're not ready
Seems you have trouble
Helping yourself

It takes time
To notice
You don't seem to know
Time keeps moving
What you're doing
Is wasting my time
You would help me more
Help me more if you
Helped yourself
Help yourself
Help yourself

You wanna get yourself together
Don't you wanna put yourself to right
I said
Get yourself together
Don't you wanna put yourself to right

I said no
Don't apologize
You've done your best
Seems it still ain't right
Leave me alone
No more to be said
To get it right
You got to do it yourself

I'm going out to help myself
Help myself
Help myself
I'm going out to help myself
Help myself
Help myself


If you're gonna say it
Say it now
Don't leave it overnight

If you're gonna hold me
Hold me tight
I don't wanna leave
Not if it seems alright

Like a crying child
I need confort now
Don't pick me up
When the tears are dry on my face

You've got to govern
The situation
But not you
You're no
And anyway
Hold up
Hold up
Hold up
You're trying to sort out your mind

You've got to
Get it together
You've got to
Get it together
You would help me more, help me more
If you helped yourself
