    People talk
    That’s what they do
    But they don’t understand
    How mi still a push an’ go through

    Yes, they laugh
    They call me names
    But they just don’t get it
    How dem see mi a hol’ my head up just the same

    When dem see me, dem just keep on talkin’
    Me nuh see them, I just keep on walkin’
    I’ve got my pride
    Me nah go show my bad side

    Some a dem see me as a big pushover
    Let me fi dead, dem think I’m gonna kill over
    Oh no, not I
    I and I will survive

    Never let them get you down
    Never let them see you frown
    Never let them take away your levity
    Live your life and be free

    Never let them get you down
    Never let them see you frown
    Never let them lead you astray, starting today
    Live your life and live it your way

    When you go through heartache
    When you feelin’ pain
    When you en’ up in a desert
    An’ a wonda why the hell it nah rain

    When dem pass dem judgement
    And every word lef’ a stain
    When dem talk up di things dem
    Just fi mash up yuh life an’ give you bad name

    Dem think yu weak but a deso dem blunda
    Bad mind and think dem lef’ yu business asunder
    Don’t give dem that power
    Show dem you can be stronger

    Jus tek up yuself an’ mek di whole a dem wonda
    How yu get up when dek a try keep you under
    Don’t believe their lies
    Show dem that you will rise

    Never let them get you down
    Never let them see you frown
    Never let them take away your levity
    Live your life and be free

    Never let them get you down
    Never let them see you frown
    Never let them lead you astray, starting today
    Live your life your way

    I say people talk
    That’s what they do
    But they don’t understand
    How mi still a push an’ go through

    Yes, they laugh
    Some call me names
    But they just don’t get it
    How dem see mi a hol’ my head up just the same

    When dem see me, dem just keep on talkin’
    And me nuh see them, I just keep on walkin’
    I’ve got my pride
    Me nah go show my bad side

    Some a dem see me as a big pushover
    Let me fi dead, dem think I’m gonna kill over
    Oh no, not I
    I and I will survive

    Never let them get you down
    Never let them see you frown
    Never let them take away your levity
    Live your life and be free

    Never let them get you down
    Never let them see you frown
    Never let them lead you astray, starting today
    Live your life your way

    Never let them get you down
    Never let them see you frown
    Never let them take away your levity
    Live your life and be free

    Never let them get you down
    Never let them see you frown
    Never let them take away your levity
    Live your life and be free

    Get you down, oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
    Don’t let them get you down, no, no, no, no, no, no
    I got my pride, I got my pride
    I’m standing firm, I’m standing firm
    Stronger, yeah, eh

    They can’t do me like that
    What?
    Miss it
