"Do What You Gotta Do" as written by and Pat Flynn....
Sometimes you've got to take the heat
If you're gonna walk down the mean street
Take the heat and you see it through
"Cause sometimes it comes down to
Do what you gotta do
Sometimes it goes right down to the wire
And you might have to walk through the fire
Walk on boy all the way through
Sometimes it just comes down to
Do what you gotta do
Well there's people that'll tell you
It's just no use
And there's people that'll tell you
That you're gonna lose
People that'll tell you
Anything you're gonna listen to
Do what you gotta do
Someday they're going to call your name
They'll come looking for some one to blame
What's your name, boy
Hey, you just tell them true
"Cause they can't take the truth from you
So do what you gotta do
Well, they'll call you a hero or a traitor
But you'll find out that, sooner or later,
Nobody in this world is gonna do it for you
Do what you gotta do
There ain't nobody in this world
That's gonna do it for you
Do what you gotta do

    My InterpretationI agree with the top two people. It's saying that you shouldn't let others get in your way or tell you that you can't do something. You just gotta "Do what you gotta do" no matter what the critics are saying.
