Sometimes you've got to take the heat 
If you're gonna walk down the mean street 
Take the heat and you see it through 
"Cause sometimes it comes down to 
Do what you gotta do 
Sometimes it goes right down to the wire 
And you might have to walk through the fire 
Walk on  boy all the way through 
Sometimes it just comes down to 
Do what you gotta do 
Well  there's people that'll tell you 
It's just no use 
And there's people that'll tell you 
That you're gonna lose 
People that'll tell you 
Anything you're gonna listen to 
Do what you gotta do 
Someday they're going to call your name 
They'll come looking for some one to blame 
What's your name, boy 
Hey, you just tell them true 
"Cause they can't take the truth from you 
So do what you gotta do 
Well, they'll call you a hero or a traitor 
But you'll find out that, sooner or later, 
Nobody in this world is gonna do it for you 
Do what you gotta do 
There ain't nobody in this world 
That's gonna do it for you 
Do what you gotta do
