You can get it if you really want 
You can get it if you really want 
You can get it if you really want 
But you must try, try and try, try and try 
You'll succeed at last, mmh, yeah 

Persecution you must fear 
Win or lose you're about to get your share 
Got your mind set on a dream 
You can get it though hard it may seem now

You can get it if you really want 
You can get it if you really want
You can get it if you really want 
But you must try, try and try, try and try 
You'll succeed at last, I know it

Listen, Rome was not built in a day 
Opposition will come your way 
But the harder the battle, you see 
Is the sweeter the victory now

You can get it if you really want 
You can get it if you really want 
You can get it if you really want 
But you must try, try and try, try and try 
You'll succeed at last

You can get it if you really want 
You can get it if you really want 
You can get it if you really want 
But you must try, try and try, try and try 
You'll succeed at last

(You can get it if you really want) I know it
(You can get it if you really want) don't I show it  
(You can get it if you really want) don't give up now
(You can get it if you really want) keep on trying
