You've got to be wise
You've be strong
You've got to have love baby all day long
Hop up on that train
In the pouring rain
You do what you gotta do
There's no need to explain

I said hey
I said hey
Go get it

His father works so hard
In that old factory yard
He's earing all his gold
He's early sixty years old
He's out there in the morning
He comes home late at night
Mama's got to got to got to treat that man right
Work the live long day
For things to come his way
His dream is to see that San Fransisco Bay
Now papa always said
Son don't be afraid
Go get what you want
But don't you be underpaid

I said hey
I said hey
Go get it

You've got to be wise
You've got to be strong
You've got to have love baby all day long
Work hard everyday
Out there in the street
Just like papa said
You'll never take the back seat

I said hey
I said hey
Go get it
