We may not have a cent to pay the rent
        But we're gonna make it, I know we will
        We may have to eat beans every day
        But we're gonna make it, I know we will
        And if a job is hard to find
        And we have to stand in the welfare line
        I've got your love and you know you got mine
        So we're gonna make it, I know we will 

        We may not have a home to call our own
        But we're gonna make it, I know we will
        We may have to fight hardships alone
        But we're gonna make it, I know we will
        'Cause togetherness brings peace of mind
        We can't stay down all the time
        I've got your love and you know you got mine
        So we're gonna make it, I know we will 

        Our car may be old, our two rooms cold
        But we're gonna make it, I know we will
        We may not can spare a roach a crumb
        But we're gonna make it, I know we will
        And if I have to carry 'round a sign
        Sayin' "Help the deaf, the dumb, and the blind"
        I got your love and you know you got mine
        So we're gonna make it, I know we will 

        We're gonna make it
        (We're gonna make it, we're gonna make it)
        We're gonna make it, baby
        (We're gonna make it, we're gonna make it)
        It might seem hard sometime
        (We're gonna make it, we're gonna make it)
        But don't worry, darlin' baby
        (We're gonna make it, we're gonna make it)
        We're gonna keep on tryin'
        (We're gonna make it, we're gonna make it) [fade]
