my lyricsbox
Cross your fingers say you're on high
Pretend you're in den and see what life brings
But always taking things as they come
Tends to make you forget to put anything in

The longer you dwell the more it's like hell
You sit by the well just making a wish
It would be a shame to take too much blame
Look we're all the same it's only a game

Ackee 1-2-3
Ackee 1-2, 1-2-3
Did I just catch you laughing?
Ackee 1-2-3
Ackee 1-2, 1-2-3

Forward where the knocks are hardest
Some to failure some to fame
Never mind the cheers or hooting
Keep your head and play the game

Try to keep your feet on the ground
Without getting them stuck in the mud
You will soon be over the moon
Or twice as hot as the sun

Ackee 1-2-3
Ackee 1-2, 1-2-3
Ackee 1-2-3
Ackee 1-2, 1-2-3

So cross your fingers say you're on high
Pretend you're in den and see what life brings
But always taking things as they come
Tends to make you forget to put anything in

The longer you dwell the more it's like hell
You sit by the well just making a wish
To make it plain I'll say it again
We're all the same, it's only a game

Ackee 1-2-3
Ackee 1-2, 1-2-3
Did I just catch you laughing?
Ackee 1-2-3
Ackee 1-2, 1-2-3

Someone just smiled for no special reason
It looks liken the smile's come back into season
It's so easy, doesn't have to be a nice day
Just the only one you've got and it's coming ready or not

Ackee 1-2, 1-2-3
Ackee 1-2, 1-2-3
