When you want something bad enough
You got to stick to it.
Ain't nobody telling me that I can't do it.
Don't let no one tell you what you should be.
Nobody in this World can say no to me.

Chorus:
Stand back, I'm coming through.
Stand back, I know just what to do.
Stand back, Let me make my way.
Stand back, listen to what I say.

Steppin' up in life you got to help yourself.
That don't mean you have to step on no one else.
Go for it man you got nothing to lose.
But don't let nobody step on you.

Chorus

I ain't gonna run and hide if you think I am.
You better step aside.
I ain't gonna turn the other cheek.
If you want the world you can't be meek.

You can't get by if you don't take a chance.
You got to pay the fiddler if you want to dance.
I learned my lesson a long time ago.
You got to keep pushin' if you want it to go.

Chorus

One of these days you got to speak your mind.
Even if they say that you're out of line.
One of these days you're gonna know the score.
I'm not telling you something you don't know.

Chorus
(I made my mind up to do it. There ain't nothing to it)
