What we gon' do right now is go back, way back

Bring in the groove


I want to 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 want to 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


2 - All my people in the back

Mama, mama

You know you raised me with no father figure

(Didn't ya)

I want to take this time to thank you

For giving me life, oh yeah

Mama, mama

You know you raised me with no father figure

(Didn't ya)

I want to take this time to thank you

Even though I'm doing Life

Alright


(Ooh) It's real son, alright

(Ooh) Can't flee

(Ooh)All my people doing time

(Ooh)People in the back playing cards

(Ooh)Don't lose your money yeah

Yeah tell them don't lose your money, c'mon, c'mon


Repeat 1


Repeat 2


(Ooh) For my people doing time (alright)

(Ooh) For my people doing time (alright)
