Move On Up

LYRICS

Hush now child, and don’t you cry

Your folks might understand you, by and by

Move on up, toward your destination

You may find from time to time

Complication

Bight your lip, and take a trip

Though there may be wet road ahead

And you cannot slip

So move on up for peace 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

Move on up, and keep on wishing

Remember your dream is your only scheme

So keep on pushing

Take nothing less, than the second best

Do not obey, you must keep your say

You can past the test

Just move on up, to a greater day

With just a little faith

If you put your mind to it you can surely do it

Just move on up

Move on up

But move on up

Oh child, but just move on up

But move on up

Move on up
