Keeping On

Keeping on is a song about not giving up until you drop. I think, anyway. It just kind of dropped out of my head after a couple of glasses of red one evening while I was messing about with a bottleneck on the Strat.

Not off the bottle I was drinking at the time I hasten to add!

People keep on dying
People keep on trying
Babies keep crying
Snoopers keep on prying
Preachers keep praying
While hookers keep laying
Teachers keep teaching
While the dogs keep baying
Just keep on
Just gotta keep on keeping on

Drivers keep on driving
While the swimmers keep on swimming
Jumpers keep jumping
Singers keep singing
Losers keep losing
While the winners keep winning
Climbers keep climbing
And the swingers keep swinging
Just gotta keep on
Just gotta keep on keeping on

Drinkers keep drinking
And the smokers keep smoking
Sailors keep sailing
While the stokers keep stoking
Workers keep working
And the shirkers keep shirking
Writers keep writing
Thinkers keep thinking
Just gotta keep on
Just gotta keep on keeping on

Hopers keep on hoping
Copers keep on coping
Players keep on playing
Prayers keep on praying
Walkers keep on walking
Talkers keep on talking
Tryers keep on trying
Liars keep on lying

Who knows if we ain’t got long
We just gotta keep on keeping on
