Stuck in the middle, I can see where I've been
My eyes are open and I know where I'm going
So much is in the way
There are people who like being negative
And they always got something to say

They say you'll never be what you want to be
And that you'll never get what's so far
Ooh, I'm trying hard, gotta hold my tongue
Times like this, I wish I really could say

I wanna tell them shut up, I'm moving up
No time for the haters, working hard to be greater
You need to shut up, I'm climbing up
This is the calling, I don't see myself falling
So shut up

Working hard every day to be noticed
[Incomprehensible]
They don't want the best for you
There are people around being jealous
'Cause they wish that they could do what you do

They say you'll never be what you hope to be
And that you'll never shine like the stars
Ooh, you're trying hard, gotta hold your tongue
Times like this, I know you wish you could tell them

Tell them shut up, I'm moving up
No time for the haters, working hard to be greater
They need to shut up, I'm climbing up
This is the calling, I don't see myself falling

So shut up, I'm moving up
No time for the haters, working hard to be greater
They need to shut up, I'm climbing up
This is the calling, I don't see myself falling
So shut up

Please forgive me, I don't mean to be rude
This is not my normal behavior
When people say them things
To knock me off my brains
I can't help it, gotta tell them

Shut up, I'm moving up
No time for the haters, working hard to be greater
They need to shut up, I'm climbing up
This is the calling, I don't see myself falling

So shut up, I'm moving up
No time for the haters, working hard to be greater
They need to shut up, I'm climbing up
This is the calling, I don't see myself falling
So shut up

Shut up, shut up
This is real
So shut up
