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 Rome was not built in a day Opposition will come your way But the hotter the battle you see It's the sweeter the victory, now You can get it … I know it, listen Persecution you must bear Win or lose you've got to get your share Got your mind set on a dream You can get it, though harder them seem now You can get it … I know it You can get it if you really want - though I show it You can get it if you really want - so don't give up now You Can Get it if You Really Want (Jimmy Cliff)
