Sink Or Swim
   ------The Old Ceremony

When all these people talking like they know something that I don't know
By helping out your brother looking out for each other it's everywhere I go
Now I was never poor myself
But I feel poor and I'm gonna give you some advice
'Bout making something of your live

You know it's sink or swim
You've got a choice to make my friend
'Cause God bless the child
But if it ain't blessed
It better learn to sink or swim
'Cause I'm not diving in

Well all you half steppers
Step aside let me show you where you got it wrong
If you don't got nothing
Well that should tell you something 'bout where you belong

Now I was never black myself but I feel pain
And I'm gonna give you some advice
'Bout making something of your life

You know it's sink or swim
You've got a choice to make my friend
'Cause God bless the child
But if it ain't blessed
It better learn to sink or swim

Sink or swim
You've got a choice to make my friend
'Cause God bless the child
But if it ain't blessed
It better learn to sink or swim
I said God bless the child
But if it ain't blessed
It better learn to sink or swim
'Cause I'm not diving in
I'm not diving in
I'm not diving in
