"The Bigger They Come the Harder They Fall" as written by and Jimmy Cliff....
Well they tell me of a pie in the sky
Waiting for me when I die
But between the day you're born and when you die
They never seem to hear even your cry
So as sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share of what's mine and then

The bigger they come
The harder they fall one and all
Ooh, the bigger they come
The harder they fall one and all

Well the oppressors are trying to keep me down
Trying to drive me underground
And they think that they have got the battle won
I say, "Forgive 'em Lord they no not what they've done"
Cause as sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share of what's mine and then

And then the bigger they come
The harder they fall one and all
Ooh, the bigger they come
The harder they fall one and all

And I keep on fighting for the things I want
Though I know that when you're dead you're 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

And then the bigger they come
The harder they fall one and all
Ooh, the bigger they come
The harder they fall one and all

Hey, the bigger they come
The harder they fall one and all
Ooh, the bigger they come
The harder they fall one and all

The bigger they come
The harder they fall one and all
