God bless my daddy, I learned so much from him He taught me at an early age I had to sink or swim He said, "Boy, that old river of life can wash away your dreams But you gotta keep right on kicking and swimming upstream" Before I knew it I was out there on the street That old gal they call lady luck she wasn't kind to me As a matter of fact you could say she was down right mean She kept me in way over my head and swimming upstream Swimming upstream, swimming upstream Fightin' every inch of the way for a poor boy's dream Things will get rough, times will get lean But the only choice you got is keep swimming upstream Every time I think my ship is comin' in That old tide will turn and it'll take me back out again If I just lay back and float I'll be in trouble you see So I gotta keep working and kicking and swimming upstream Swimming upstream swimming upstream Fightin' every inch of the way for a poor boy's dream Things will get rough, times will get lean But the only choice you got is keep swimming upstream Swimming upstream swimming upstream Fightin' every inch of the way for a poor boy's dream Things will get rough, times will get lean But the only choice you got is keep swimming upstream Yeah, the only choice that you got is keep swimming upstream
