Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Get"

The meaning of "Get" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does to get by mean?
A: To earn enough money
Q: What does It got old mean?
A: In this sense, it means you got tired of it. In your example I don’t think “heirs” is the word that should be used because that would mean your children, grandchildren, or great-grandchildren wanted to sleep with you, presumably to win favor and get money in the will” Or maybe it is your off-spring (children, grandchildren, etc.) but they wanted to win your favour (“sleep with me” means to have sex)
Whether it was younger people wanting to have sex with you to win you over, or your younger family members wanting to do something that would make you leave them all your money, in either case, you were sick and tired of everyone wanting to inherit from you and you are saying that you don’t want to deal with it anymore. “It got old”.
Q: What does God’s got you. mean?
A: Yes! That is a good translation!
Q: What does You got it sexy mean?
A: “You got it, Sexy”

Means, yes, you’re right gomch. But the person thinks you’re sexy.

On the other hand, it could possibly mean, you’ve got it going on...and you’re sexy. But it’s doubtful that that’s what is meant by that saying.

When someone says, you’ve got it, it usually means, yes, you have it correct. Yes, you’re on the right track. The sexy part of the sentence just means that they aren’t saying your name but gave you a pet name and is calling you Sexy.
Q: What does Can I get to know you better mean?
A: It's a way of saying, "I like you and I'd like to spend more time talking with you, hearing about your life and doing things with you.
