Come on now

If you want it to happen baby
Hold fast and believe
You can make it happen baby
You can be where you please

All you gotta do is try
The try once again
Then try a few more times
Then try after then

When I was a little girl
Raised on North Philly streets
I'd hear my people say
Ghetto is all there be

But my mommy would hold me
Quietly give me peace
She look me in my eyes
And she say to me

If you want it to happen baby
Hold fast and believe
You can make it happen baby
You can be where you please

All you gotta do is try
Then try once again
Then try a few more times
Then try after then

As a teenager, I dreamed to see the world
But how could I do this? Me, a poor black girl
And just when my will was lost and all hope seem set free
I remember my mommas face and her tellin' me

Try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try
Try and try again
Try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try

Now as a grown woman
I still stumble and fall
But with the light of faith
And the same amount of effort

I can withstand it all
I done seen some things now y'all
And been a few places
I'm now enjoyin' the beautiful world and
The many new faces

Now

Try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try
Try and try again
Try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try

If you want it to happen baby
If you want it to happen baby
If you want it to happen baby
...
