"The Harder They Come" as written by and Jimmy Cliff....
Well they tell me up up high up in the sky
Waitin for me when I die
Between the day your born and when you die
They never seem to hear it in your cry

So its sure that the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share now what's mine
And the harder they come the harder they fall one and all
Oo the harder they come the harder they fall one and all

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

For its sure that the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share now what's mine
And then the harder they come the harder they fall one and all
Yeah the harder they come the harder they fall one and all

And ill keep on fighting for the things I owed
Though I know when your dead you come
But id rather be a free man in my grave
Living as a puppet or a slave

So its sure that the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share now what's mine
And the harder they come the harder they fall one and all
And the harder they come the harder they fall one and all
Oo the harder they come the harder they fall one and all
Yeah
