Des'ree: You Gotta Be #MM

Monday, September 27, 2010

The kids are having school examinations for a week. So, I'm quite sure that my time will be more than full packed along with all those other chores and deadlines. To be truth, I can't wait to get at the end of the week. Well, what kind of spirit is that to have at the beginning of a week? That's why the song You Gotta Be by Des'ree seems a perfect fit for me. All I know, all I know that love will save the day. Come on get into the beat!

You Gotta Be is the first single of Des'ree's second  album I Ain't Movin, released in 1994. In 1995 it was used for the ending credits of the movie The Next Karate Kid, starring Hillary Swank and Pat Morita. I hope you'll enjoy watching and listening to the video. Remember, love will save the day.







You Gotta Be Lyrics

Songwriters: Weekes, Des'Ree; Ingram, Ashley

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, love will save the day


Herald what your mother said
Reading 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, heh, 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, love will save the day


TIME asks 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
This time it's danger staring you in the face


Remember
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
My oh my heh, 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, love will save the day


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, love will save the day
