Yeah, this song right here is about a young man
Who's endured a lot of twists and turns in his life
'Cause he always kept his head up, stayed focused
This man's name is Mario Winans, listen

What makes you think I can't make it?
Put me to the test, I'll take it
I've been through more trials but I've overcome all of them
And I've never been one for fakin'
I kept on movin' and shakin' and that's how I made it

I've seen it all but I never let no one
Tell me what's right, when it's wrong
'Cause I heard it all before
And it gives me a reason to fight for a right for, to do what I gotta do

What makes you think I can't make it?
Put me to the test, I'll take it
I've been through more trials but I've overcome all of them
And I've never been one for fakin'
I kept on movin' and shakin' and that's how I made it

All of my life I was told that you had to go through
Just to get where you want and if you come across a storm
You just gotta keep holdin' on and stay strong
And do what you gotta do

What makes you think I can't make it?
Put me to the test, I'll take it
I've been through more trials but I've overcome all of them
And I've never been one for fakin'
I kept on movin' and shakin' and that's how I made it

Check it out, yo, hey yo, hey yo
I came from the bottom, worked my way up
Ran wit big dudes, had to get my weight up
Now my cake up, now it's lights, cameras, make up
Trips to Jacob, foreign countries

Reminisce of times when we all was hungry
Now I made it, know y'all niggaz that hate it
Seeing that I sound like Mase and
Knowing that I came from the basement, did my own thing, so face it

Now they coming wit cases, now with this hand I'm racist
I'm so close I can taste it
Sometimes I just want to grab, toast and take it
But I'm a keep moving and shaking
Stay true to my faith and I ain't worried about you, I'm a make it

What makes you think I can't make it?
Put me to the test, I'll take it
I've been through more trials but I've overcome all of them
And I've never been one for fakin'
I kept on movin' and shakin' and that's how I made it
