"Move on Up" as written by and Curtis Mayfield....
Hush now child and don't you cry
Your folks might understand you by and by
Move on up towards your destination
You may find from time to time complications
Bite your lip and take a trip
Though there may be wet road ahead
You cannot slip
So move on up and peace you will find
Into the steeple of beautiful people
Where there's only one kind
So hush now child and don't you cry
Your folks might understand you by and by
So move on up and keep on wishing
Remember your dreams are your only schemes
So keep on pushing
Take nothing less, not even second best
And do not obey, you must have your say
You can pass the test
Move on up, move on up, move on up.......
