Singalong! Roundup: The Impression That I Get by The Mighty Mighty Boss Tones

Remember SKA? Oh yeah, baby!

Also - wow, this song is basically just a bunch of dudes being like, "hey, nothing hard has ever happened in our lives, things have been very easy." Not the usual tac people take in their songwriting, but I appreciate the honesty.


THE IMPRESSION THAT I GET
by The Mighty Mighty Bosstones

Have you ever been close to tragedy
Or been close to folks who have?
Have you ever felt the pain so powerful
So heavy you collapse?

No, well
IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII'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 felt 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 rest

No, well
IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII'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've never had to - I'd better knock on wood
Cause I'm sure it isn't good
And I'm glad I haven't yet
That's the impression that I get
