"On the Way Up" as written by and Prince Rogers Nelson Elisa Fiorello....
I'm on the way up
Look out! Ow!
Babe
Oh, babe

People tell me I can't have everything
But still I wanna have it all
They say I cannot succeed in life
That I'll get so far and then I'll fall

I don't need no negative outlook
I don't need nobody putting me down
Don't they know that talk is useless?
Nothing is gonna keep my feet on the ground

Because I'm on the way up
I've got it all together
Nothing is gonna hold me back
Yeah, I'm on the way up
I'm only getting better
Now tell me what you think about that, look out!

If and when you make it
All kinds of people come around
Some of them in your corner
Some of them put you down
But one thing they all agree on
Is that you are gonna change
When all along they're the only ones
Who never ever remain the same
Now tell me which one of us changed?

Only fools don't take chances
If you wanna be on top
You gotta work every single moment
Cause another's after your spot
All the suckers scream and shout
They don't know what it's all about
This is my world
And I'm sorry, this table is reserved

I'm on the way up
I've got it all together
Nothing is gonna hold me back
Oh no, cause I'm on the way up
Only getting better
Now tell me what you think, tell me what you think about that

Oh
Oh yeah

I'm on the way up
I've got it all together
Nothing is gonna hold me back
Oh, because I'm on the way up
I'm only getting better
Tell me what you think, tell me what you think about that, oh no

(On the way up)
People think I can't have everything
But I'm gonna get it all
I'm on the way up
Nothing is gonna make me fall
No, no, no
Now what you think about that?
Tell me what you think about that!
Uh huh, thought so
