Get A Grip

If over a paving slab you do trip
Don’t shoot a council worker just get a grip
If you end up on a drug induced trip
Don’t shoot you’re dealer just get a grip

When the cat poo's thick don’t take a whip
To skin the cat just get a grip
If you lose on a coin flip
It’s just your luck so get a grip

If you have new taps and you get a drip
Don’t gas the plumber just get a grip
Always smile and have a happy quip
For it shows that you can get a grip

When people just get on you’re pip
Ignore them and just get a grip
If your lottery ticket ain’t a lucky dip
Buy another and get a grip

If on a banana skin you do slip
Dust yourself down and get a grip
So trip, whip, drip, quip, pip, slip and dip
The world can be a better place if we all just get a grip
