And Everybody Knows The Truth…We Just Keep On Pushing!!!

IN HONOR OF WE PEOPLE WHO ARE DARKER THAN BLUE

We’re A Winner
And Never Let Anybody Say
Boy, You Can’t Make It
Cause Some People’s Mind Is In Your Way
No More Tears Do We Cry,
The Black Boy Done Dried His Eyes,
Cause We’re Moving On Up, Moving On Up
Lord Have Mercy, We’re Moving On Up Now, Moving On Up
They’ll Be No More Uncle Tom
Unless That Blessed Day Has Come
And We’re A Winner, And Everybody Knows The Truth
We’ll Just Keep On Pushing, Like Martin Luther Told You To
And I Don’t Mind Leaving Here, To Show The World We Have No Fear
Cause We’re Moving On Up, Moving On Up, Lord Have Mercy We’re Moving On Up
We’re Moving On Up
So People Get Ready, I’ve Got Good News For You
How We Got Over, Like We’re All Suppose To Do
Let Us All Say A-Men, And Together We’ll Clap Our Hands
Cause We’re Moving On Up, Moving On Up
Lord Have Mercy We’re Moving On Up Now, Moving On Up!!!
