Reachin’ out for love, I see the tiny fingers of our baby’s hand –-
A gift of God of love, and the sharin’ of a woman and a man.
Brought into the world as a part of you and me,
Lyin’ there so helpless, unaware of what’s to be.
And we are all a part of God’s plan –-
And both of us must lend a helpin’ hand.

It’s up to us, to show him by givin’,
He’s got to know that life is worth livin’.
And we must never ever let him down,
When he needs us, then we must be around.

It’s up to us... It’s up to us.

Soon his eyes will open, and he’ll see so much that he won’t understand.
So we must be nearby so that we can catch his eye, and take his hand.
The first thing that he touches, let it be your gentle hand.
We’ll let our love surround him as he grows into a man.
And he must never feel that he’s alone –
We’ll hold him up, ’til he can stand alone.

It’s up to us, to show him by givin’,
He’s got to know that his life is worth livin’.
And we must never ever let him down,
When he needs us, then we must be around.

It’s up to us... It’s up to us.

And we must do our part to try to teach him wrong from right.
He’ll pick himself back up if he should stumble in the night.
And when he’s grown into a man someday,
With pride inside, we’ll watch him walk away.

It’s up to us, to show him by givin’,
He’s got to know that his life is worth livin’.
And we must never ever let him down,
When he needs us, then we must be around.

It’s up to us... It’s up to us... It’s up to us.

It's Up To Us Lyrics

Bobby Goldsboro – It's Up To Us Lyrics

Reachin’ out for love, I see the tiny fingers of our baby’s hand –-
A gift of God of love, and the sharin’ of a woman and a man.
Brought into the world as a part of you and me,
Lyin’ there so helpless, unaware of what’s to be.
And we are all a part of God’s plan –-
And both of us must lend a helpin’ hand.

It’s up to us, to show him by givin’,
He’s got to know that life is worth livin’.
And we must never ever let him down,
When he needs us, then we must be around.

It’s up to us... It’s up to us.

Soon his eyes will open, and he’ll see so much that he won’t understand.
So we must be nearby so that we can catch his eye, and take his hand.
The first thing that he touches, let it be your gentle hand.
We’ll let our love surround him as he grows into a man.
And he must never feel that he’s alone –
We’ll hold him up, ’til he can stand alone.

It’s up to us, to show him by givin’,
He’s got to know that his life is worth livin’.
And we must never ever let him down,
When he needs us, then we must be around.

It’s up to us... It’s up to us.

And we must do our part to try to teach him wrong from right.
He’ll pick himself back up if he should stumble in the night.
And when he’s grown into a man someday,
With pride inside, we’ll watch him walk away.

It’s up to us, to show him by givin’,
He’s got to know that his life is worth livin’.
And we must never ever let him down,
When he needs us, then we must be around.

It’s up to us... It’s up to us... It’s up to us.
