Ooooh-ooohh
hey-yeeeah

You got to keep on keepin on
You got to keep your head up high
You gotta work with what you've got
And someday you will flyyyyy 

[Verse 1:]
Poor kids pouring cold water in their cereal
 Second hand clothes  Surviving is pivotal  Praying to God at night 
That things'll get better soon

I remember when I was in your position  Tried to tell people my story 
But no one would really listen 
I know times are hard right now
 Happiness is hard to find right now

[Chorus:]
You got to keep on keepin on
You got to keep your head up high
You gotta work with what you've got
And someday you will flyyyyy 
You got to keep on keepin on
You got to keep your head up high
You gotta work with what you've got
And someday you will flyyyyy 

[Verse 2:]
 Lookin out the window to a rose grows in concrete 
Dreamin' of the day when you'll be standing on your own feet
Hard to find the good in such a scene so bad (so so sad)
 Seein other kids with their Tims on
 Fresh with Air Ones, wish I had one
Longin' for a day when you get your chance to shine 
Don't worry, there'll come a tiiiiiiime 

[Chorus:]
You got to keep on keepin on
You got to keep your head up high
You gotta work with what you've got
And someday you will flyyyyy 
You got to keep on keepin on
You got to keep your head up high
You gotta work with what you've got
And someday you will flyyyyy 

[Bridge:]
 Young girl sittin' on the steps of her duplex (mmmm)
Why you gotta choose to make my life so complex  Breathing to the beat of a slow, sad drum
 Trouble leaves some moments for some fun
I can almost guarantee you
It'll get better todaaaaaayyy

[Chorus:]
You got to keep on keepin on
You got to keep your head up high
You gotta work with what you've got
And someday you will flyyyyy 
You got to keep on keepin on
You got to keep your head up high
You gotta work with what you've got
And someday you will flyyyyy
