Curtis Mayfield Keep On Keeping On Lyrics

Last updated: 11/19/2012 10:32:17 AM

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, 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 ***
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)
