lyrics

Don't get your hopes up

Don't get your hopes up because you'll only get knocked down
If you don't know if you're going to sink or swim you'll probably drown
So you've got to keep your feet planted firmly on the ground
If you get your hopes up you'll only get knocked down

You could do so much better if you put in the time and effort
If you set high social standards for your life
But I swear that just surviving is the meaning of life
So if you're getting by you've done all right

Don't get your hopes up because you'll only get knocked down
If you don't know if you're going to sink or swim you'll probably drown
So you've got to keep your feet planted firmly on the ground
If you get your hopes up you'll only get knocked down

When you expect the best and things go wrong it's a right kick in the balls
But you'll never be disappointed when you expect nothing at all
So keep your expectations low and try your fucking best
That's the only way you're ever gonna progress

Don't get your hopes up because you'll only get knocked down
If you don't know if you're going to sink or swim you'll probably drown
So you've got to keep your feet planted firmly on the ground
If you get your hopes up you'll only get knocked down

Well you could dare to dream but don't expect too much
Man makes his plans but god just points and laughs
He'll scupper you at every turn till your boat's smashed on the rocks
The only thing that you can do's to keep on keeping on

Don't get your hopes up because you'll only get knocked down
If you don't know if you're going to sink or swim you'll probably drown
So you've got to keep your feet planted firmly on the ground
If you get your hopes up you'll only get knocked down
