We Gotta Get Out Of This Place
The Partridge Family Lyrics


In this dirty old part of the city
Where the sun refused to shine
People tell me there ain't no use in tryin'

Now my girl you're so young and pretty
And one thing I know is true
You'll be dead before your time is due, I know

Watch my daddy in bed a-dyin'
Watched his hair been turnin' grey
He's been workin' and slavin' his life away
Oh yes I know it

(Yeah!) He's been workin' so hard
(Yeah!) I've been workin' too, baby
(Yeah!) Every night and day
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!)

We gotta get out of this place
If it's the last thing we ever do
We gotta get out of this place
'cause girl, there's a better life for me and you

Now my girl you're so young and pretty
And one thing I know is true, yeah
You'll be dead before your time is due, I know it

Watch my daddy in bed a-dyin'
Watched his hair been turnin' grey, yeah
He's been workin' and slavin' his life away
I know he's been workin' so hard

(Yeah!) I've been workin' too, baby
(Yeah!) Every day baby
(Yeah!) Whoa!
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!)

We gotta get out of this place
If it's the last thing we ever do
We gotta get out of this place
Girl, there's a better life for me and you
Somewhere baby, somehow I know it

We gotta get out of this place
If it's the last thing we ever do
We gotta get out of this place
Girl, there's a better life for me and you
Believe me baby
I know it baby
You know it too

Love this song, it seems to have more power on the vocals than the CD version. Good!!!!!!!!!

John Mulder

I've been a fan since the 1970 debut of the partridge family.

John Mulder  70s was fun as a teenager, 1st concert Rolling Stones at age 12 with 80,000 fans in Buffalo, NY  It does suck even today we still get all that snow. 1977 Blizzard gave us name SNOW CAPITAL of USA. It was bad winds 80mph 19 feet of snow City & Schools closed for 3 weeks. It snowed every day in January. We have to wait till July to swim because Lake frezzes over every winter. Even now we average 10 feet from Lake Erie

I did not know they (the partridge family esp David Cassidy) covered this tune and so well. He can sing great on most of the older stuff he covered by greats Jack favored, but when he did this, WOW ! Its good . . . thanks for sharing sumerKis38 sharing the light, miss erica hidvegi, the Enlightenment Advisor
