"You Gotta Be" as written by Ashley Ingram and Desree Annette Weekes....
Listen as your day unfolds
Challenge what the future holds
Try and keep your head up to the sky

Lovers, they may cause you tears
Go ahead release your fears
Stand up and be counted
Don't be ashamed to cry

You gotta be
You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold
You gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard
You gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger

You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm
You gotta stay together
All I know, all I know, Is love will save the day

Herald what your mother said
Readin' the books your father read
Try to solve the puzzles in your own sweet time

Some may have more cash than you
Others take a different view
My oh my hey, hey, hey

You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold
You gotta be wiser,
You gotta be hard, you gotta be tough,
You gotta be stronger

You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm
You gotta stay together
All I know, all I know, Is love will save the day

Time ask no questions, it goes on without you
Leaving you behind if you can't stand the pace

The world keeps on spinning
You can't stop it, if you try to
The best part is danger staring you in the face

Ohh, well then Listen as your day unfolds
(You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold)
Challenge what the future holds
(You gotta be wiser)

Try and keep your head up to the sky
(you gotta be hard,You gotta be tough)
(you gotta be stronger)

Lovers, they may cause you tears
(You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm)
Go ahead release your fears
(You gotta stay together)

My oh my hey, hey, hey
(All I know, all I know)
(Is love will save the day)

(Well then listen as your day unfolds)
You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold
(Challenge what the future holds)
You gotta be wiser

(Try and keep your head up to the sky)
You gotta be hard, You gotta be tough
You gotta be stronger

(Lovers, they may cause you tears)
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm
(Go ahead release your fears)
You gotta stay together

(My, oh, my, hey, hey, hey)
All I know, all I know, Is love will save the day

Love will save the day
Well, all I know, all I know
You gotta get yourself together
Love will save the day

You gotta keep your head to the sky
Love will save the day
Because the world will keep on spinning
Love will save the day

Love, love, love will save the day
Love, love, love will save the day
Love will save the day

Love, love, love will save the day
Love will save the day
