Charted: 12
  • Have you ever been close to tragedy
    Or been close to folks who have?
    Have you ever felt a pain so powerful
    So heavy you collapse?No?
    Well I've never had to knock on wood
    But I know someone who has
    Which makes me wonder if I could
    It makes me wonder if
    I've never had to knock on wood
    And I'm glad I haven't yet
    Because I'm sure it isn't good
    That's the impression that I get
    Have you ever had the odds stacked up so high
    You need a strength most don't possess?
    Or has it ever come down to do or die?
    You've got to rise above the restNo?
    Well I've never had to knock on wood
    But I know someone who has
    Which makes me wonder if I could
    It makes me wonder if I've never had to knock on wood
    And I'm glad I haven't yet
    Because I'm sure it isn't good
    That's the impression that I get
    I'm not a coward I've just never been tested
    I'd like to think that if I was I would pass
    Look at the tested and think there but for the grace go I
    Might be a coward
    I'm afraid of what I might find out
    Never had to knock on wood
    But I know someone who has
    Which makes me wonder if I could
    It makes me wonder if I've never had to knock on wood
    And I'm glad I haven't yet
    Because I'm sure it isn't good
    That's the impression that I get
    Never had to but I'd better knock on wood
    'Cause I know someone who has
    Which makes me wonder if I could
    It makes me wonder if I never had to but I'd better knock on wood
    'Cause I'm sure it isn't good
    And Im glad I haven't yet
    That's the impression that I getWriter/s: DICKY BARRETT, JOSEPH GITTLEMAN
