I Take Some Getting Used To


Lyrics

"I Take Some Getting Used To"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

Like an uncut diamond, I’m rough around the edges

But with polish, I clean up pretty well

If you only knew how much love I’ve got to give

At first I know it can be hard sell

If you can give it time, you may change your mind

Why not take a chance and go with the flow

If you give me a try, then you’re gonna see why

I’ll treat you better than you’ve ever known


I take some getting used to, my voice is a little different some say

And the way I play this old guitar, is more or less the same

I take some getting used to, like scotch whiskey, I’m an acquired taste, and

Like most people, I don't change much, but like wine, I get better with age

I take some getting used to


Now you might find it takes some time

To get to know me well

And if you do, I might be right for you

Only time will tell

If you can see deep under the surface

There's goodness that’s hard to find

There's half a chance I'll be your man

And I'm a glass half full kind of guy


I take some getting used to, my voice is a little different some say

And the way I play this old guitar, is more or less the same

I take some getting used to, like scotch whiskey, I’m an acquired taste, and

Like most people, I don't change much, but like wine, I get better with age

I take some getting used to


I’ve heard it said I give a bad first impression

And love at first sight might be out of the question

But there’s more to me than meets the eye

I’ve got a soul that’s strong and heart that’s kind


I take some getting used to, my voice is a little different some say

And the way I play this old guitar, is more or less the same

I take some getting used to, like scotch whiskey, I’m an acquired taste, and

Like most people, I don't change much, but like wine, I get better with age

I take some getting used to


I take some getting used to, but I can grow on you they say

Been called the kind of stand up guy, to help you move on a rainy day

I take some getting used to, it’s not easy to figure out my style

You’ll warm up to me, eventually, after a while I’ll make you smile

But I take some getting used to
