In The Thick Of It
Brenda Russell Lyrics


Well, we're in the thick of it
Better get a grip and get it on, get it on

We're in the thick of it
Better get a grip and get it on
Better get a grip and get it on
Better get a grip and get it on
Get it on, get it on

The world we live in is so hectic
Sometimes I wonder if it's worth it
So hold on tight and we'll just make it
It's such a dog-gone fight
But we won't know until we try

We're in the thick of it
Better get a grip and get it on
Better get a grip and get it on
Better get a grip and get it on
Get it on, get it on

Sometimes I think I'm going somewhere
But then I look around and who's there
It makes you wonder what's important
Is it really do or die to see if you can touch the sky?

We're in the thick of it
Better get a grip and get it on
Better get a grip and get it on
Better get a grip and get it on
Get it on, get it on

So hold on tight and we can make it
So hold on tight and we can make it
Get it on, get it on, get it on

I love this song! Haven't heard it in over 30 years. Damn-- it sounds good! Brings back lots of sweet memories when I was a (very) young woman finding my way in the world. Thanks for posting this classic and taking me way back and remembering those great times of discovery back in the late 70s.

I just heard this masterpiece for the first time on 8/3/2019 but this song came out when I was 4 years old. Dam the 70's made great music

The PHENOM known as, Brenda Russell has been one of my ABSOLUTE FAVORITES, consistently for fortysomething years! I'm sharing this song with my college bestie. THIS WAS OUR DORM ROOM JAM in 79! The whole album was on loop!! She's battling cancer now, so am I! Im like, we ain't gotta do everything together! WE'RE GONNA BEAT THIS! And, this is gonna brighten her up, just like it did me! Thank YOU for posting this, AND, THANK GOD FOR THE BEAUTY & GENIUS OF BRENDA RUSSELL! This song just transported me!!! WOW!
