Mort Shuman b.12 November 1936 d.2 January 1991, Jerry Ragovoy b.1935 / originally recorded by Howard Tate (22 February 1967) Verve Records # VK-10496.

In this world, if you read the papers darlin'
You know everybody's fighting on with each other.
You got no one you can count on babe
Not even your own brother.
So if someone comes along
He gonna give you some love and affection
I'd say get it while you can, yeah!
Honey, get it while you can, yeah
Hey - hey, get it while you can
Don't you turn your back on love, no - no

Don't you know, when you're loving anybody baby
You're taking a gamble on a little sorrow
But then who cares, baby
'cause we may not be here tomorrow, no.
And if anybody should come along
He gonna give you any love and affection
I'd say get it while you can, yeah!
Hey - hey, get it while you can
Hey - hey, get it while you can.
Don't you turn your back on love
No no no - no no no no no.

Oh-oh, get it while you can
Honey get it when you're gonna wanna need it dear, yeah - yeah
Hey - hey, get it while you can
Don't you turn your back on love
No no no - no no no no, get it while you can
I said hold on to somebody when you get a little lonely, dear
Hey - hey, hold on to that man's heart
Yeah-eah, get it - want it - hold it - need it
Get it - want it - need it - hold it
Get it while you can, yeah
Honey get it while you can, dear yeah
Hey - hey, get it while you can! ¥Ç¥
