Reaching for my dreams and
You're so quick to say what I can't do.
You criticize my actions but
I don't see you standing in my shoes.
I'm going the wrong way
And doing the wrong things
 Every word just gives me fuel
So come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on! 

[Chorus]
Tell me no
I'll show you I can
Tell me no
I'll dig my feet right in
Tell me no
Just tell me that I can't win
Come on, I'm sure I'll prove you wrong 
Come on and go!
Tell me no! 

For every step I take you're right there
 Trying to block my next move.
And if you're making me feel bad,
Then tell me then do you feel good?
I'm just human and all I'm doing 
Is what my heart tells me I should 
So come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on! 

[Chorus]

No no no no no no
It motivates me more and more
And I think it's time you know
You're giving me something to look forward 
And I can't wait for the day
I can rub things in your face
I ain't gon stop til I'm done
I've reached the top, I'm Number One
But every time you try and tell me no
Oh it makes me keep on keeping on 

[Chorus]
