Quit Trying
Bunny Wailer
Album: Protest

You better quit trying! To live my life for me.
You better quit trying! Stop nagging me so constantly.
You better quit trying! I just want for you to let me be.

'Cause I've got who I want
to show me the way, yeah.
Don't need sympathy
so please go your way, yeah, yeah.

Go away you hypocrite! Go away-oh!
Promise is a comfort to a fool you hypocrite! Go away-oh!
I don't need no sympathy you hypocrite! Go away-oh!
Please don't you sorry for me you hypocrite! Go away-oh!

'Cause since I've seen the light
you don't know what it's done for me.
And it's such a light
only who's got eyes to see can see.
Since I've seen the light
you don't know what it's done for me.
And it's such a light
only who's got eyes to see can see.

You better quit trying! Give the little youth a chance.
You better quit trying! They can make this place a better land.
You better quit trying! I hope you elders understand.

They got their own mind
they too can lead the way.
They can make the garden red, gold and green
for little children to play.

Go away you hypocrite! Go away-oh!
Promise is a comfort to a fool you hypocrite! Go away-oh!
I don't need no sympathy you hypocrite! Go away-oh!
And please don't you sorry for me you hypocrite! Go away-oh!

'Cause since I've seen the light
you don't know what it's done for me.
And it's such a light
only who's got eyes to see can see.
Since I've seen the light
you don't know what it's done for me.
And it's such a light
only who's got eyes to see can see.

You better quit trying! To live my life for me.
You better quit trying! Stop nagging,
stop nagging me so constantly.
Trying! Give the little youth a chance.
You better quit trying! They can make this place a better land.
