Sly & The Family Stone – You Can Make It If You Try lyrics

You can make it if you try
You can make it if you try

Push a little harder
Think a little deeper
Don't let the plastic
Bring you down

(All together now)
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

You can make it if you try
You can make it if you try

Time still creepin'
'Specially when you're sleepin'
Wake up and go
For what you know

(All together now)
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

You can make it if you try
You can make it if you try

You'll get what's due you
Everything coming to you
You got to move
If you want to be ahead

(All together now)
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

You can make it if you try
You can make it if you try

Time still creepin'
'Specially when you're sleepin'
Wake up and go
For what you know

(All together now)
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

You can make it if you try
Ma-ma-make it
You can make it if you try
Pa-pa-make it

You can make it if you try
You can make it if you try
You can make it if you try
...
