OPPORTUNITY PLEASE KNOCK Oscar Brown Jr as rec by Chris Connor 1961 The older I grow, The older I grow, With every tick of the clock, While I wait for mister Opportunity to knock, Opportunity, just knock! Opportunity, please knock! You don't have to come Beatin' on no drum, You don't have to bam Like a battering ram And beat down my door, Because I couldn't stand the shock! Opportunity, just knock! Opportunity, please knock! Don't come with a pash Or a lightnin' flash, Don't land in my room With a thunderous boom, Don't fly through my window Like a house brick or rock; Opportunity, just knock! Opportunity, please knock! Knock and then enter, You'll be more than welcome here! Show me a chance that's just halfway fair, And let me take it from there! Opportunity, please, Opportunity, please knock! There's a ship out at sea Comin' in for me; I'm all set to go, Knock and let me know, And then get on your mock And I will race you to the dock! Opportunity, just knock! Opportunity, please knock! Opportunity, just knock! Opportunity, just knock! Opportunity, please, please! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - March 2011)
