Time Tough
Toots and The Maytals Lyrics


I go to bed
But sleep won't come
get up in the night
I couldn't stand my feeling no
Early in the morning
Oh mercy
It's just the same situation
Deep in the landlord
Comes a knocking up on my door
He's a knocking up on my door
I've got $400/month rent to pay
and I can't find a dollar
let me, Let me tell you...

Time tough (time tough)
Everything is out of sight, so hard
(so hard) so hard (so hard)
Time tough (time tough)
Everything is going higher and higher
(higher and higher)

Sister Lee cannot bear it
Brother Lincoln only stand it now
They crying night and day, louder and louder
Nobody to help them in their way
I've got $400/month rent to pay
and I can't find a dollar
let me, Let me tell you...

Good times won't lead into bad times
but the bad times take over
And when I was a little boy
I just kept on feeling it, feeling it

Can't blame the minister
and you can't blame the preacher
and you can't blame your brother
and you cannot blame your sister
Can't blame your friends
cuz today is judgement day
And that's why everyone have to pray

I go to bed but sleep won't come
Get up in the night
I couldn't fight my feelings
Early in the morning
It's just the same situation
Here comes the landlord just a knocking upon my door
You knockin' upon my door
I've got four hundred/month rent to pay
And I can't find a job

Let me tell you time tough (Time Tough)
Everything is out of sight, it's so hard (So hard)
Time tough (Time Tough)
Everything is growing higher and higher

Sister Lee cannot bear it
And brother Lincoln hardly stand it now
They're crying night and day, louder and louder
Nobody to help them make their way
I've got four hundred/month rent to pay
And I can't find a dollar

Let me tell you time tough (Time Tough)
Everything is out of sight, it's so hard (So hard)
Time hard (Time hard)
Everything is growing higher and higher

Good times was leading the bad times
But now the bad times take over
When I was a little boy
I just keep on feeling it, feeling it, feeling it
Feeling it, wow get down

Eh, eh, eh

Time tough (Time Tough)
Everything is out of sight, it's so hard (So hard)
Time tough (Time Tough)
Everything is growing higher and higher

Can't blame the minister
And you can't blame the preacher
And you can't blame your brother
And you cannot blame your sister
Can't blame your friends
'Cause today is the judgement day
And that's why everyone have to pray

Let me tell you time tough (Time Tough)
Everything is out of sight, it's so hard (So hard)
Time tough (Time Tough)
Everything is growing higher and higher...

I go to bed
But sleep won't come
Get up in the night
I couldn't stand my feeling no

Early in the morning
Oh mercy
It's just the same situation
Deep in the landlord

Comes a knocking up on my door
He's a knocking up on my door
I've got 400 month rent to pay
And I can't find a dollar
Let me, Let me tell you

Time Tough (Time Tough)
Everything is out of sight, so hard
(So hard) so hard (so hard)
Time Tough (Time Tough)
Everything is going higher and higher
(Higher and higher)

Sister Lee cannot bear it
Brother Lincoln only stand it now
They crying night and day, louder and louder
Nobody to help them in their way
I've got 400 month rent to pay
And I can't find a dollar
Let me, Let me tell you

Good times won't lead into bad times
But the bad times take over
And when I was a little boy
I just kept on feeling it, feeling it

Can't blame the minister
And you can't blame the preacher
And you can't blame your brother
And you cannot blame your sister
Can't blame your friends
Cuz today is judgement day
And that's why everyone have to pray

I’ll never forget seeing Toots live at Revolution Hall in Portland, OR last summer. What a show. RIP to a true legend, who’s helping us all get through these tough times.

Your music and voice will never go silent. You will be sorely missed. I will miss your energy on stage and that smile. Much love from Ventura, California. Love you Toots.
