The Harder They Come
Well, they tell me of a pie up in the sky
Waitin' for me when I die
Between the day you're born and when you die
They never seem to hear it in your cry

So as sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share now what's mine
And then the harder they come, the harder they'll fall
One and all
Ooh, the harder they come, harder they'll fall
One and all

Well, the oppressors are tryin' to keep me down
Trying to drive me underground
They think that they have got the battle won
Say forgive them for they know not what they've done

For as sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share now what's mine
And then the harder they come, harder they'll fall
One and all
Yeah, the harder they come, harder they'll fall
One and all

And I'll keep on fighting for the things I want
Though I know that when you're dead you can't
But I'd rather be a free man in my grave
Than living as a puppet or a slave

So as sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share now what's mine
And then the harder they come, harder they'll fall
One and all
And then the harder they come, harder they'll fall
One and all
Ooh, the harder they come, harder they'll fall
One and all
Yeah
