SUBLIME – What I Got

From their self-titled album Sublime (1996). Sublime was an American reggae rock and ska punk band from Long Beach, California, formed in 1988. The band’s line-up, unchanged until their breakup, consisted of Bradley Nowell (vocals and guitar), Eric Wilson (bass), and Bud Gaugh (drums). Lou Dog, Nowell’s dalmatian, was the mascot of the band. Nowell died of a heroin overdose in 1996, resulting in Sublime’s breakup. In 1997, songs such as “What I Got”, “Santeria”, “Wrong Way”, “Doin’ Time”, and “April 29, 1992 (Miami)” were released to U.S. radio.

Early in the morning, risin’ to the street
Light me up that cigarette and I’ll strap shoes on my feet
Got to find the reason, reason things went wrong
Got to find a reason why my money’s all gone
I got a Dalmatian and I can still get high
I can play the guitar like a motherfuckin’ riot

Well, life is too short, so love the one you got
‘Cause you might get run over or you might get shot
Never start no static, I just get it off my chest
Never had to battle with no bulletproof vest
Take a small example, take a tip from me
Take all of your money, give it all to charity
Love is what I got, it’s within my reach
And the Sublime style’s still straight from Long Beach
It all comes back to you, you’re bound to get what you deserve
Try and test that, you’re bound to get served
Love’s what I got, don’t start a riot
You’ll feel it when the dance gets hot

Lovin’ is what I got
I said, remember that
Lovin’ is what I got
And remember that
Lovin’ is what I got
I said, remember that
Lovin’ is what I got
(I got, I got, I got)

Why I don’t cry when my dog runs away
I don’t get angry at the bills I have to pay
I don’t get angry when my mom smokes pot
Hits the bottle and goes right to the rock
Fuckin’ and fightin’, it’s all the same
Living with Louie Dog’s the only way to stay sane
Let the lovin’, let the lovin’ come back to me

Lovin’ is what I got
I said, remember that
Lovin’ is what I got
And remember that
Lovin’ is what I got
I said remember that
Lovin’ is what I got
(I got, I got, I got)

We’re not that far off
So, that’s the…
See, but
We’re done, man
