    Everybody gather round and listen to my song
    I've only got one

    We who are young, should now take a stand
    Don't run from the burdens of women and men
    Continue to give, continue to live
    For what you know is right

    Most of your life can be out of sight
    Withdraw from the darkness and look to the light
    Where everyone's free
    At least that's the way it's supposed to be

    We just keep on keeping on
    We just keep on keeping on

    Many think that we have blown it
    But they too will soon admit
    That there's still a lot of love among us

    And there's still a lot of faith and warmth and trust
    When we keep on keeping on

    Before we dismiss, one thing I insist
    When you have your young, remember this song
    And our world surroundings, its leaps and bounds
    Ups and downs, is reality

    Teach them to be strong, and when they are grown
    They can proudly imply that we were an alright guy
    For all the wrong now is right
    This nation's people are now united as one

    And we just keep on keeping on
    We just keep on keeping on

    Many think that we have blown it
    But they too will soon admit
    That there's still a lot of love among us

    And there's still a lot of faith, warmth, and trust
    When we keep on keeping on

    Keep on keeping on, ya'll
    Keep on, keep on, keep on, keep on
    Keep on, keeping on
    (Keep on, keeping on)

    We got to move on up, ya'll
    (We got to move on up)
    Keep on, keep on, keep on, keep on, keep on

    Some years back I remember
    Still in my mind so well
    My mama made this [Incomprehensible]
    And I found it never fails

    Never worry too long
    (Worry too long)
    About what goes on
    (About what goes on)
    Today it's sorrow
    (Today it's sorrow)
    Look like joy tomorrow
    (Look like joy tomorrow)

    Keep on keeping on
    (Keep on keeping on)
    Keep on, keep on
    (Keep on, keep on)

    We just keep on keeping on
    We just keep on keeping on

    Many think that we have blown it
    But they too will soon admit
    That there's still a lot of love among us

    And there's still a lot of faith, warmth, and trust
    When we keep on keeping on

    Ooh ooh ooh ooh
    (Ooh ooh ooh ooh)

    We're gonna move on up
    (We're gonna move on up)

    Keep on keeping on
    (Keep on keeping on)
    Move on, move now
    (Move on, move now)
    Keep on keeping on
    (Keep on keeping on)

    And here I was thinking all along that this was MC Lyte's joint. I have been deceived.

    One,
