Dennis Brown - Halfway Up, Halfway Down Lyrics




Many a problems, many a joy
Life can be fun but never a toy
Many a good times, many a bad
Thankful for all those times that I've had
And when the sun comes tomorrow
And if I'm blessed With another day
At least I have found life's middle ground
Halfway up, halfway down
Oh whoa, yeah-ah

Many a sorrows, many a pain
Better a person I have became
Many a laugh and many a smile
Building up from ah every down
And when the sun comes tomorrow
And I'm blessed with another day
At least I have found life's middle ground
Halfway up, whoa oh, halfway down
Ooh.. oh whoa, well
Oh alright

Yes, many a woman, many a man
Have found themselves
Also right where I am
Many a lifetime, many a day
Searching to find a better way
And when the sun comes tomorrow
And I'm blessed with another day
At least I have found life's middle ground
Halfway up, halfway down

Oh, whoa, well
Ooh yeah, yeah...

Many a sorrows, many a fame
That of the person I have became
Many a laugh and many a smile
Building up from my every down
And when the sun comes tomorrow
And I'm blessed with another day
At least I have found life's middle ground
Halfway up, halfway up
Well.. oh whoa, well

Many a problems, many a joy
Life can't be fun but never a toy
Many a good times, many a bad
Thankful for all those times that I've had
And when the sun comes tomorrow
And I'm blessed with another day
At least I have found life's middle ground
Halfway up, halfway down

Oh, oh - halfway up, halfway down
Oh, oh - halfway up, whoa oh, halfway down
Halfway down, yeah, halfway up
Halfway down and halfway up
Not much further to go, well
Not much further to go, halfway up..

    dennis voice is way better than both ken booth and jnr mervin however there are better voices in reggae than all of them such as bunny ruggs of third world, maxie priest, brian and tony gold luckie d, frankie paul, richie stephens jack raddics there are so many blessed voices in reggae

    regmike68

    Dennis Brown is Dennis Brown, never copied or sounded like 'anybody' and even his style sometimes, went off the grid of the mainstream reggae. Was Bob Marleys favourite singer. It´s his uniqueness that put him apart. He pioneered, this soulful tenor reggae voice. It´s not about how good his voice is or was. He was a pioneer.

  59. Lamarocean

    The reason why i listen to reggae because it makes sense. There is a reason why they sing and they sing about something that is worth listening to. Weather it be positive or negative it has a meaning to it not just a bunch of crap about getting money or women like most of the music on the radio.

  60. irisferguson

    This song reminds me of growing up in Stockwell in South London listening to my Jamaican father and his musician friends jamming in the front room. What a beautiful, honest song, beautiful rhythmn and lyrics. Rest in Peace Dennis, we won't forget youxxx

    Hadley Shamanoh

    This is what happens when you take your time composing a song......pure gold.

    Danny62
