ItŐs getting better all the time.

I used to get mad at my school.

The teachers who taught me weren't cool.

You're holding me down, turning me around,

Filling me up with your rules.

I've got to admit its getting better.

         Em             F

A little better all the time.

   C                        F

I have to admit its getting better.

             Em            F           FM7   G   C

It's getting better, since you've been mine.


Me used to be angry young man.

Me hiding me head in the sand.

You gave me the word, I finally heard.

I'm doing the best that I can





F  C/E  F  C/E  F  C/E F   C/E C

Getting so much better all the time.





I used to be cruel to my mom and, I beat her

And kept her apart from the things that she loved.

Man, I was mean, but I'm changing my scene.

And I'm doing the best that I can.
