Get it While You Can
====================
[Verse 1:] 
In this [C]world, if you read the [Em]papers, Lord,
You know every-[F]-body's fighting on with each [C]other.
You got [C]no one you can count on, baby,
Not [C]even your [Bb]own [F]brother.
So if [C]someone comes [E]along,
He's gonna [F]give you some love and [G#]affection
[Cborus:] 
I'd say [C]get it while you can, yeah! [Bb] [F]
Honey, [C]get it while you can, [Bb] [F]
Hey, hey, [C]get it while you can, [Gm]
Don't you turn your back on [Am]love, no, [G]no!

Don't you [C]know when you're [Em]loving anybody, baby,
[F] You're taking a gamble on a little [C]sorrow,
But then [C]who cares, baby,
'Cause we [C]may not be [Bb]here to-[F]-morrow, no.
And if [C]anybody should come [E]along,
He gonna [F]give you any love and [G#]affection,
