Pick Myself Up
Peter Tosh
Album: Bush Doctor

Sitting in the morning sun
and watching all the birds passing by.
Oh how sweet they sing
and oh how much I wish that I could fly!
And I try.
I said I try.
I try.
I really try, try, try.

But I got to pick myself up.
Dust myself off.
Start all over, again.
I got to pick myself up.
And dust myself off.
Start all over, again.

Sitting in the midday sun and wondering
where my meal 's coming from.
After working so hard
not even piece of bread a mi yard.
And I said I try.
Oh Lord I try!
Said I try.
I really try, try, try.

But I got to pick myself up.
And dust myself off.
Start all over, again.
I got to pick myself up.
And dust myself off, I say.
And start all over, again.

Sitting in the evening sun
and watching the same birds passing by.
Sitting and wondering
and waiting for the time for me to fly.
And I try.
I said I try.
Good Lord I try!
I really try, try, try.

But I got to pick myself up.
And dust myself off.
And start all over, again.
I got to pick myself up, over and over.
And dust myself off.
And start all over, again.

So long and I just find
it was just a waste of time.
So long and I just find
I've been wasting all my time.

I got to pick myself up.
And dust myself off.
And a start all over, again.
I got to pick myself up.
