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
