Chorus

Life is what you make it

So don't you waste it

Keep on singing, keep on working, keep on pushing that market

Life is what you make it

So don't you waste it

Keepon singing, keepon working, keepon pushing that market

Verse 1

Life is hard
So everyone got to work for what they want
You canít sit around
Thinking things are going to fall into your arms
You have got to be strong
You have got hold a solid ground
I have tried so many things so many times
And still they fall down
But this is my fate
This is my race††
This is my birth and resting place
The brave may fall but never yet yield
Lessons I learned from my golden days
This is my fate
This is my race††
This is my birth and resting place
The brave may fall but never yet yield
Lessons I learned from my golden days

Verse 2
More prayers and blessing
We †all got to keep on trodding
Hey we have got life, we have got strength
Hopes and dreams so we willing
Some people make a their living

Lying, killing, robbing hey hey
We make our living writing singing working all day
Never give my ghetto youths
And always speak the truth
Plant that seed to reap the fruit
But never the destroy the root
Never give my ghetto youths
And always speak the truth
Plant that seed to reap the fruit
But never the destroy the root
