“Steady, As She Goes” is the debut single by the rock band The Raconteurs from their first studio album, Broken Boy Soldiers.

After having recorded her own version of the group’s “Many Shades of Black” for the deluxe edition of 19, Adele covered “Steady, As She Goes” backstage at Radio One’s Big Weekend in 2008. Adele read the lyrics to the song off her phone because she hadn’t been prepared to sing it, as it was a fan request during the show.

LyricsEdit

Find yourself a girl
And settle down
Live a simple life
In a quiet town

Steady as she goes
(Steady as she goes)
Steady as she goes
(Steady as she goes)

So steady as she goes

Your friends have shown
A kink
In the single life
You’ve had
Too much to think
Now you need a wife

Steady as she goes
(Steady as she goes)
So steady as she goes
(Steady as she goes)

Well here we go again
You’ve found yourself
A friend
That knows you well
But no matter
What you do
You’ll always feel
As though you
Tripped and fell

So steady as she goes

When you have completed
What you thought
You had to do
And your blood’s
Depleted
To the point
Of stable glue

Then you’ll get along
Then you’ll get along

Steady as she goes
(Steady as she goes)
So steady as she goes
(Steady as she goes)

Well here we go again
You’ve found yourself
A friend
That knows you well
But no matter
What you do
You’ll always feel
As though you
Tripped and fell

So steady as she goes
Steady as she goes

Settle for a girl
(Settle for a girl)
Neither up or down
(Neither up or down)
Sell it to the crowd
(Sell it to the crowd)
That is gathered round
(That is gathered round)

Settle for a girl
(Settle for a girl)
Neither up or down
(Neither up or down)
Sell it to the crowd
(Sell it to the crowd)
That is gathered round
(That is gathered round)

So steady as she goes
(Steady as she goes)
Steady as she goes
(Steady as she goes)

Steady as she goes
(Steady as she goes)
So steady as she goes
(Steady as she goes)

Steady as she go
Are you steady now?
Steady as she goes
Are you steady now?

Steady as she goes
Are you steady now?
Steady as she goes
Are you steady now?

Steady as she goes
