Come on now
Chorus:
If you want it to happen baby
Hold fast and believe
You can make it happen baby
You can be where you please
All you gotta do is try
The try once again
Then try a few more times
Then try after then

When I was a little girl
Raised on North Philly streets
I'd hear my people say
Ghetto is all there be
But my mommy would hold me,quietly give me peace
She look me in my eyes
And she say to me

Chorus:
If you want it to happen baby,
Hold fast and believe
You can make it happen baby
You can be where you please
All you gotta do is try
Then try once again
Then try a few more times
Then try after then

As a teenager,I dreamed to see the world
But how could I do this?
Me,a poor black girl
And just when my will was lost and all hope seem set free
I remember my mommas face and her tellin me

Chorus 1x
Try try try try try try try try try
Try and try again
Try try try try try try try try try

Now as a grown woman
I still stumble and fall
But with the light of faith and the same amount of effort
I can withstand it all
I done seen some things now ya'll
And been a few places
I'm now enjoyin the beautiful world and
The many new faces
Now

Chorus 1x

If you want it to happen baby (6x)
Fade Out
