Jools Holland & His Rhythm & Blues Orchestra - Horse To Water lyrics

You can take a horse to the water
but you can't make him drink
Oh no, oh no, oh no

A friend of mine in so much misery
Some people sail through life,but he has struck a reef
I said "Hey man let's go out and get some wisdom"
But first he turned on me, then he turned off his nervous system

You take a horse to water but
you can't make him drink
Oh no, oh no, oh no
You can have it all laid/staked out in front
of you but it still don't make you think
Oh no, oh no, oh no

Someone I love is gotta problem
Some people thirst for truth, but he would like a drink
I said "Hey man this could turn out to be risky"
He said "Everything's ok" as he downed another bottle of whiskey

There's a preacher out there warned me about Satan
Could be that he knows him
Cause' He acts like he's possessed
I said "Hey man let's hear about God realisation
For a change"
he said "We ain't got time for that
First you must hear the evils of fornication"
