We're a winner and never let anybody say
Boy, you can't make it 'cause a feeble mind is in your way
No more tears do we cry
And we have finally dried our eyes

And we're movin' on up
(Movin' on up)
Lord have mercy, we're movin' on up
(Movin' on up)

We're living proof in alls alert
That we're two from the good black earth
And we're a winner
And everybody knows it too

We'll just keep on pushin'
Like your leaders tell you to
At last that blessed day has come
And I don't care where you come from

We're all movin' on up
(Movin' on up)
Lord have mercy, we're movin' on up
(Movin' on up)

Hey, hey, we're movin' on up
(Movin' on up)
Lord have mercy, we're movin' on up
(Movin' on up)

I don't mind leavin' here
To show the world we have no fear
'Cause we're a winner
And everybody knows it too

We'll just keep on pushin'
Like your leaders tell you to
At last that blessed day has come
And I don't care where you come from

We're just go move on up
(Movin' on up)
Lord have mercy, we're movin' on up
(Movin' on up)

We'll just keep on pushin'
We're a winner
Lord, baby, everybody
Hey, you know we're movin' on up
We're a winner
Yeah, yeah just keep on pushin'
