Happy birthday - big girl now

It's my friends birthday today.
She's now 45.
We've known each other since our skinny little legs could barely hold up socks
We've fallen out and made up..fallen out and made up... until we grew up, and our friendship remained


She's been through alot
She's still here
We have history
We have stories

She's more like family now really.. don't see each other much, but we catch up from time to time
This song was released in 1994.. big song back then, though Ive never seen the video before today
I think Reggae fans will know this one

We saw Everton Blender at Sunsplash.. along with Cocoa Tea and others that year
We had a blast
This is to a long friendship.. her special day



Lyrics

Lift up your head and hold it up high
We know that we'll win the prize

Time gettin' harder
Still we strivin' for better
And we're not gonna stop till the battle is won
And we get justice
Cause if you lose your stance
Anyone will try to push you over
Over and over

Lift up your head and hold it up high
We know that we'll win the prize
Lift up your head and hold it up high
We know that we'll win the prize

Don't be discouraged,
By the pitfalls and their worries
Pain endure for the the night but joy cometh in the morning
And if you lose your soul
There's nothing to gain
It will be over
Over and over

Lift up your head and hold it up high
We know that we'll win the prize
Lift up your head and hold it up high
We know that we'll win the prize

(SOLO)


Nah go bow cause the color of my skin
Nah go cheat because me wan fi win
Nah see the crown an still no know the king
Nah see blessin' an no know blessing

Cause if you lose your stance
There comes someone to push you over
Over and over

Lift up your head and hold it up high
We know that we'll win the prize
Lift up your head and hold it up high
We know that we'll win the prize

  7. Happy Belated to your friend. It sounds like the kind of friendship that will stand the test of time. I'd never heard the song beforehand but the lyrics are wonderful.
