Maxi Priest - Try Lyrics

Don't rush the move you gotta make
Don't give it all before you take
Just step aside and watch a while
Be prepared to walk an extra mile
Flip the switch and check the groove
And now's the time to stop talk and move
Education is the only way
To learn to live to fight another day

We can make it if we try try try
Who's the mathematician Jah Jah on a mission try try try

Don't get caught in no desperation
Use your skill from your ghetto irration
Feel the vibration
Some people see it astrologically
But I didn't get that from my triga knowledgy

What a friend who would deceive
Use your faith when you believe
Thought he was a friend
The human love we thought was real
So off and on so what's the deal
Thought he was a friend yeah

We can make it if we try try try
Who's the mathematician Jah Jah on a mission try try try

Now tell me
Who's the mathematician
Jah Jah on a mission
Trying to find a way in this world of attrition
Jah Jah on a mission
Work it out,work it out

Keep it real

We gotta find a sanctuary
Flip into the 21st century
Keep it real and lose the fakes
Learn all your lessons from your own mistakes
Children now will come of age
Let's keep the love as we set the stage
Justice for all we can stand tall
No more comin' from back against the wall hey

We can make it if we try try try
Who's the mathematician
Jah Jah on a mission

    Great voice and stage presence, I was privileged to see him sing in acoustic shell Teatro Castro Alves in Salvador Bahia, Brazil. 
    Very charismatic he called some girls to dance onstage with him, including my wife Nancy Guimarães. 
    A fantastic band and 2 women and a guy in doing Backs 
    a wonderful harmony.

    Eu vi um Show do Maxie Priest ele canta muito bem e a performance tão perfeita qe  parece o CD rolando num sonzão, a banda era um espetáculo a parte, nos vocais 2 mulheres e um homem eles fizeram um arraso.
    Em Salvador na Concha acústica do Teatro Castro Alves, foi na época do hit the woman in you.
    Dica Guimarães Jr, One more chance é uma balada reggae,Soul.
