have you ever been close to tragedy?
close to folks you have
have you ever felt the pain so powerful?
so heavy you collapse
no, well, oh..never had to knock on wood
but i know someone who has
which makes me wonder if i could
it makes me wonder if i'd
ever have to knock on wood
and im glad i havent yet
because im sure it isnt good
thats the impression that i get

have you ever had the odds to grub so high
you need a scrape must own posess
or has it come down to do or die
you got to rise above the rest
no, well, oh.. never had to knock on wood
but i know someone who has
which makes me wonder if i could
it makes me wonder if i'd
ever have to knock on wood
and im glad i havent yet
because im sure it isnt good
thats the impression that i get

im not a guy but ive just never been tested
id like to think that if i was i would pass
look at the tested and forever the grace will go on
i might be a guy but im afraid of what i might find out
never had to knock on wood
but i know someone who has
which makes me wonder if i could
it makes me wonder if i'd
ever have to knock on wood
and im glad i havent yet
because im sure it isnt good
thats the impression that i get
i never have, and i better knock on wood
because i know someone who has
which makes me wonder if i could
it makes me wonder if i'd
never had to, i better knock on wood
because im sure it isnt good
and im glad i havent yet
thats the impression that i get

    General Comment....This song isn't by Reel Big Fish, but Sell Out is. I have no idea where you got that idea from...

    General CommentThis song is caleld "The Impression that I get", not this. Mods should remove it. Also Reel Big Fish don't have a song with this title either. Someone just doesn't know that the catch phrase chorus of a song isn't always the name of the song. Good job researching before posting.

    General Commentby the way whoever posted this got alot of lyrics wrong and the title wrong..if yer gonna do it.. do it right.. its supposed to be "Have you ever had the odds stacked up so high you needed strength most dont posses?"" not "have you ever had the odds to grub so high you need a scrape must own posess"...and its "Im not a coward i've just never been tested, i'd ike to think that if i was i would pass..look a the tested if your there before the greys go on... might be a coward im afraid of what i might find out" not m not a guy but ive just never been tested
    id like to think that if i was i would pass
    look at the tested and forever the grace will go on
    i might be a guy but im afraid of what i might find out

    General CommentReel Big Fish covered this song i'm pretty sure but it's definitely by the Bosstones, I dunno if the Bosstones ever covered sell out but that's by Reel Big fish

    i feel bad adding one more comment to this song but it's just so horrible, I realize you just wanted to help by contributing lyrics but please at least figure out the name of the song first

    coincidentally, i'm pretty sure Reel Big Fish titled their cover "Never Had to Knock On Wood" but it's still pretty bad
