(Jimmy Cliff)

You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
But you must try, try and try
Try and try - you'll succeed at last - mmh

Persecution you must fear
Win or lose you got to get your share
Got your mind set on a dream
You can get it though hard it may seem now

You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
But you must try, try and try
Try and try - you'll succeed at last
I know it - listen

Rome was not built in a day
Opposition will come your way
But the harder the battle you see
Is the sweeter the victory, now

You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want
But you must try, try and try
Try and try - you'll succeed at last

From 'The Harder They Come' (soundtrack, 1972)
Hit version performed by 'Desmond Dekker' (1970)
