Song versionsEdit

Aside from the version on the Careless Memories single, no other studio versions are known to have been recorded. The live arrangement of the song, featuring a slightly faster tempo and extended ending featuring an aggressive guitar solo which interpolates the sitar part from the original studio version, was performed in 1981 and has appeared on numerous unofficial recordings, noteably the Live at Hammersmith Odeon and Live at Odeon LPs, as well as the Perfect Days: Now and Then CD.

LyricsEdit

La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la loo
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la loo

Didn't no one tell you
Money is the game
You're playing so hard to get now
I don't even know your name

Don't play with me, I've nothing to lose Khanada, I'll get by
It ain't no one's day, coming so soon Khanada,
I'll get by
I don't believe in dragons or blues Khanada, 
I'll get by
I don't believe in nobody's rules Khanada, 
I'll get by

Heavy as the rain falls
I might go outside
Just because you're with me
Doesn't mean you're not the same
Don't play with me I've nothing to lose Khanada, 
I'll get by
It ain't no one's day, coming so soon Khanada,
I'll get by
I don't believe in dragons or blues Khanada,
I'll get by
I don't believe in nobody's rules Khanada,
I'll get by
