Donovan-Get Thy Bearings

Get your bearing, know your time
Don’t you worry, weather’s fine
All the world know what I’m saying
All the world know what I’m saying
The world know fine well

Get together, work it out
Simplicity is what it’s about
All the world know what I’m saying
All the world know what I’m saying
The world know fine well
