Take What You Got

Broadway Musical
Kinky Boots - Take What You Got Lyrics


HARRY
Remember the pub where our fathers went
To spend the end of the day?

CHARLIE
Remember the yard behind the pub
Where we would run and play?

HARRY
Yeah, well, now the pub is a laundromat

CHARLIE
Now, the yard is a high-rise flat

HARRY
You can't go back
You can't make it last

HARRY
You've gotta take what you've got
Even when your life is in knots
You take aim, take your shot
Sometimes, you've got to re-write the plot
You've got to take what you've got

CHARLIE
You'd always say that one of these days
You'd get out of Northampton town

HARRY
You'd always that you wouldn't stay
No, you wouldn't stick around

CHARLIE
Never knew what I wanted before
Now I'm even more unsure

HARRY
You can't move on if you're still in the past

You've gotta take what you've got
Even when your life is in knots
You take aim, take your shot
Sometimes, you've got to re-write the plot
You've got to take what you've got

CHARLIE
Everybodys telling me what I need to be
Change with the times, move to London town
Or live out a legacy
Well, maybe this time, Ill take a chance
Leap into the vast expanse
Maybe this time, Ill seize my destiny
My destinyyyyyyyy!
...yyyyyyyyyeh.

HARRY
If youre on the wrong road, turn back

CHARLIE
So, youll help me out?
Thank you, Harry.

Two, three!

HARRY/CHARLIE
You've gotta take what you've got
Even when your life is in knots
You take aim, take your shot
Sometimes, you've got to re-write the plot
You've got to take what you've got
