Lyric New Day


What we gon do right now is go back, way back
Bring in the groove

I wanna dedicate this to those who never made it
>From kindergarten to the 12th I never graduated
Yo but college wasn t for some of us
So we joined the service
I seen a kid get murdered in Nam listening to Elvis
But on the out looking in
Things stay the same
But at the same vein
Looking out the whole world s changed
So keep your head up
Don t get caught up in the fast bucks
And find your mom crying while your lying in a black tux
Trust me

We don t need no education says a young man
Sitting in class (sitting in class)
School is out 3 o clock on the dot
He had beef with some kids and he got shot, oh Lord

Turn on the television
I m watching Martin Luther King who had a dream, oh
So take this dream and apply it to your life
Even though we know the ghetto s rough
But we got to

1 - Keep your head up
(Uh keep your head up)
Cause a new day will come
(Uh-huh, uh-huh)
And look towards the sun
(Look towards the sun)
Even when the darkness shall come

(Ooh) It s real son
(Ooh) To my people living Life it s real son

I turn the page
What s the news today
People getting fired, walking on a wire
Looting on the streets cause the kid s gotta eat
Oh, oh turn around and look at the hour glass
I gotta get it straight
Before it s too late
Cause I don t wanna be behind that gates

Keep your head up
(Uh keep your head up)
Cause a new day will come
(Uh-huh, uh-huh)
And look towards the sun
Even when the darkness shall come

For giving me life, oh yeah
Mama, mama
