Some people get by
With a little understanding
Some people get by
With a whole lot more

Lyrics by Jim Steinman

My first time hearing this song was in fact as a cover by Meat Loaf on his album Braver Than We Are. The song was actually written by Jim Steinman whose most well-known collaborator is Meat Loaf. And he has been known to reuse his songs for different artists over the years
