Who Feels It, Knows It - Jimmy Cliff

Every man thinks his burdens the heaviest

And who feels it know it
Who feels it knows it

No dont sit by your window
Gazing at the streets
Sorrying for your self cause you've got nothing to cat
There's a light within you, so let it shine
Git up and move and start trying trying trying.

Just git up and move
Get right in the groove (rep.)

For linger you linger, cry you must cry
Now dont point your fingers and you'll get bye
Dont be no m_onshine-darling and sit down and cry.
Please dont you give up now before you give it a try

Before you give it a try
Before you give it a try, try, try
And dont you give up now dont give
up now dont give up now. Dont you
Give up now before you give it a try
before you give it a try, try, try.

Papa no want, no want no want,
No want, no more bondage
For its a long time he's been in slavery.
Mama no want, no want no want,
No more pain, pain and worry
For its a long time now she's been unhappy

And Who feels it knows it
Who feels it knows it
Every night and every day
Who feels it knows it
By their blood and sweat they pay
Who feels it knows it yea

But linger you linger cry you must cry
No dont point you fingers and you'll get bye
Dont be no moon-shine darling and sit down and cry
And please dont you give up now before you give it a try

Give it a try, try, try.

Give it a try, try, try,
And dont you give up now don't you
Give up now don't give up now
Before you give it a try, before you
Give it a try, try, try (rep.).
