"The Harder They Come (Jimmy Cliff cover)" as written by Mats/olander Karlsson and Mikael/lundholm Larsson....
Well, they tell me of a pie up in the sky
Waiting for me when I die
But between the day you're born and when you die
No, they never even seem to hear your cry

As sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share of what's mine
And the harder they come, the harder they fall
One and all
Well, the harder they come, the harder they fall
One and all

Well, the oppressors are trying to keep me down
Trying to drag my body me underground
And they think that they have got the battle won
I say forgive them Lord, they know not what they've done

As sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share of what's mine
And the harder they come, the harder they fall
One and all
Well, the harder they come, the harder they fall
One and all

Well, I 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

As sure as the sun will shine
I'm gonna get my share of what's mine
And the harder they come, the harder they fall
One and all
Well, the harder they come, the harder they fall
One and all
Well, the harder they come, the harder they fall
One and all
What I say, what I say
The harder they come, the harder they fall
One and all
