Stiff Little Fingers – You Can Get It (If You Really Want) lyrics

(Jimmy Cliff arr. S. L. F.)

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 fear
Win or lose you're gonna get your share
Got your mind set on a dream
You can get it as hard as it seems yeah


Rome was not built in a day
Opposition will come your way
But the harder the battle seems
It's the sweeter the victory yeah

(Repeat Chorus)
