We're a  winner
And never let anybody say
Boy you can't make it cause
A feeble mind is in your way
No more tears do we cry
And we have finally
Dried our eyes
And we're movin on up
Lawd have mercy
We're movin' on up
We're living proof
In alls alert
That we're true
From the good black dirt
And we're a winner
And everybody knows it too

We'll just keep on pushin
Like your leaeder tell you to
At last that blessed day
Has come
And I don't care 
Where you come from
We're all movin' on up
I don't mind leavin' here
To show the world
We have no fear
‘cause we're a winner
we're a winner
and never let anybody say,
boy you can't make it, ‘cause
a feeble mind is in your way.
No more tears do we cry
The black boy done dried his eyes.
We're movin' on up,
Lawd have mercy, we're movin' on up
There'll be no more Uncle Tom
At last that blessed day has come
And we're a winner
And everybody knows it too.
We'll just keep on pushin'
Like Martin Luther King told us to.
And I don't mind leavin' here
To show the world we have no fear
‘cause we're movin on up.
Lawd have mercy,
We're movin on up
So people get ready,
I've got good news for you
How we got over
Like we're all supposed to do.
Let us all say amen
And together we'll clap our handscause we're movin' on up,
Lawd have mercy,
We're movin' on up.
