lyrics

We’re all looking out for number one
Or we run and hunt in packs and call it love
Don’t look for compassion, here there’s none
And endless cold dark emptiness above

When the black dog has you by the throat
Don’t try to break loose, don’t kick and scream and curse
The chance of prompt release remains remote
And struggling only makes it worse

So take it easy
Don’t take it hard
Take it easy
Don’t make it hard

We know from George Harrison that all things must pass
And one day some sainted publican may refill your empty glass
You might even take a break from sitting on your arse
Drowning in self-pity, smoking too much grass

But when the black dog has you by the throat
Don’t try to break loose, don’t kick and scream and curse
The chance of prompt release remains remote
So stop your struggling: it only makes it worse

Just take it easy
Don’t take it hard
Take it easy
Don’t make it hard
