Janis Joplin – Try lyrics

Try, try, try just a little bit harder
So I can love, love, love him, I tell myself
Well, I'm gonna try yeah, just a little bit harder
So I won't lose, lose, lose him to nobody else.
Hey! Well, I don't care how long it's gonna take you now,
But if it's a dream I don't want, no I don't really want it
If it's a dream I don't want nobody to wake me.

Yeah, I'm gonna try yeah, just a little bit harder
So I can give, give, give, give him every bit of my soul.
Yeah, I'm gonna try yeah, just a little bit harder
So I can show, show, show him love with no control.
Hey! I've waited so long for someone so fine
I ain't gonna lose my chance, no I don't wanna lose it,
Ain't gonna lose my chance to make you mine, all mine.
All right, get it! Yeah!

Try yeah, try yeah, hey, hey, hey, try yeah,
Oh try whoa! Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa,
Oh anybody, oh anybody, oh anybody,
Try oh yeah (just a little bit harder)
Whoa I gotta try some more,
I said try yeah, aw I said try,
I said try try try try try try,
Oh try oh yeah, try oh yeah!

Hey hey, I gotta talk to my man now,
You know I, i gotta feel for my man now,
I said I, i gotta work for my man now,
You know I, i gotta hurt for my man now,
I think-a every day for my man now,
You know it, every way for my man now.
I say try, try yeah, oh try yeah,
Hey hey hey, try yeah-hey, oh, try...
