You Can't Be Wrong And Get Right

This song is by Jimmy Cliff and appears on the album House of Exile (1974).

Hey, listen now

You can't be wrong and get right
No matter how hard you may try
Anything that is in darkness, must come out in light
For you can't be wrong and get right

Now if you tell a little lie and think you get away
Cheat a little bit, then you will have to pay
'Cause when you think it's peace and safety, my friend
Sudden destruction's your end

Oh, 'cause you can't be wrong and get right
No matter how hard you may try
Anything that is in darkness, must come out in light
For you can't be wrong and get right

Yes, if you play with fire, man you must get burned
If you didn't know then you better learn
'Cause if you check it out, man, I'm sure you will find
You can't be wrong and get right

You can't be wrong and get right
No matter how hard you may try
Anything that is in darkness, must come out in light
For you can't be wrong and get right

Now if you tell a little lie and think you get away
Cheat a little bit, then you will have to pay
'Cause when you think it's peace and safety, my friend
Sudden destruction's your end

Oh, 'cause you can't be wrong and get right
No matter how hard you may try (try, try)
Anything that is in darkness, must come out in light
For you can't be wrong and get right

Yes, if you play with fire, man you must get burned
If you didn't know then you better learn
And if you check it out, man, I'm sure you will find
You can't be wrong and get right

No, no, you can't be wrong and get right (right, right)
No matter how hard you may try (try, try)
Anything that is in darkness, must come out in light
For you can't be wrong and get right

No, no, no, you can't be wrong and get right...
