You Can Get It If You Really Want It
by Desmond Dekker

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

Persecution you must bear
Win or lose you've got to get your share
You've got your mind set on a dream
You can get it, though harder it may seem now

You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want, yeah
You can get it if you really want
But you must try, try and try, try and try
You'll succeed at last, don't you know it, listen

Rome was not built in a day
Opposition will come your way
But the hotter 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

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, don't you know it
Though I show it, please, don't you know it
