(Take my hand
And don't let go
Trust this man
And let it flow)

Don't take me down
'Cause I'm not done
Don't steal my crown
Before it's won

The wide expanse
The wheel of chance
Will turn my way
The sky will not be gray

I don't wanna be
Like other people are
Don't wanna own a key
Don't wanna wash my car
Don't wanna have to work
Like other people do
I wanted to be free
I wanted to be true

Take my hand
And don't let go
Trust this man
And let it flow

I drank at every bar in town
I filled my cup when I was down
Saw the things I wanted to see
Became the man I wanted to be
But then somehow I lost my way
I've got to get back there today

I don't wanna be
Like other people are
Don't wanna own a key
Don't wanna wash my car
Don't wanna have to work
Like other people do
I wanted to be free
I wanted to be true

I don't wanna be
Like other people are
Don't wanna own a key
(Take my hand)
Don't wanna wash my car
(Don't let go)
Don't wanna wake at night
Or wait until it's light
I wanted to be free
I thought that I was right

I thought that I was right
I thought that I was right
I thought that I was right

Nobody's said it yet, but is that Billy singing backup?
Yes, that's him, and i think Bobby Gillespie is on that LP as well-I'll check. And, I don't wash my car because I don't have one. (My teen age son took care of that!)

One to avoid on those down days. Might stab yourself if you don't. 8/10

Agreed. "Someone like you" may be my all-fave from New Order. And God know I love many other of their songs ! And if i was to take a single album form New Order on a desert island... I think I'd pick Get Ready (not without some regrets... ;))

I\'d like to wash my car to this song with the DB\'s way up
