  • Hush now child, and don't you cry
    Your folks might understand you, by and by
    Move on up, toward your destination
    You may find from time to time
    Complication

    Bight your lip, and take a trip
    Though there may be wet road ahead
    And you cannot slip
    So move on up for peace will find
    Into the steeple of beautiful people
    Where there's only one kind

    So hush now child, and don't you cry
    Your folks might understand you, by and by
    Move on up, and keep on wishing
    Remember your dream is your only scheme
    So keep on pushing

    Take nothing less, than the second best
    Do not obey, you must keep your say
    You can past the test
    Just move on up, to a greater day
    With just a little faith
    If you put your mind to it you can surely do it

    Just move on up
    Move on up
    But move on up
    Oh child, but just move on up
    But move on up
    Move on up
