"Workin' It Out" as written by Carole Bayer Sager and Marvin Hamlisch....
Some days I star off draggin' my feet
Some days I want to fly
Some days it all makes sense to me
Some days I just don't want to know why

[Chorus]
Hey, hey, I'm not giving up, no
Gonna stand up and shout it
No way, I'm not slackin' off or backin' out or crackin' up without doubt
I'm workin' it out

Sometimes I'm just surrounded by friends
Sometimes we've never met
Sometimes I pray for something I need
But hey, you never know what you're gonna get
And

[Chorus]

It's hard enough to be what you are
Harder to be what you're not
It's hard to know what you need to get
Harder to know what you've got

[Chorus: x2]

    General Commenthmm, it's a short song...
    but yeah, it's a good inspirational song, you know, saying not to give up... it's true, it is hard to be what you are, and it's hard to know what you need to get, but yeah, it's about being different some days, but even if things are hard, she wont give up.

    General CommentIt's not really a short song, just how this person has put in the lyrics..
    This song is just about not giving up, no matter how hard the day has been or easy, don't give up.

    "It's hard enough to be what you are
    Harder to be what you're not"

    It's true, it's hard to be who you are, but being who you're not is even harder cause you're trying to impress so many people so you should be who you are.
