Ooh child things are going to get easier

Ooh child things it's get brighter



Better days x 4

Keep your head up

Better days x 4

Keep your head up



She grew up in brooklyn the eastside and fulton street

Never knew father

He got shot hustling

She stated acting much older

Her mother couldn't control her

Losing direction

Started sex'n-no protection



Now she's expecting

A life she wasn't ready for

She*s feeling rejected

And her futures unsure

And even though

Your out there on your own

Don*t give up sunshine

There will be better days

(keep your head up)

And though you have

To raise a child alone

Don*t give up sunshine

There will be better days

(keep your head up)



Are you down with full time

On weekend stripping

So you met baller, but ain't down, but trick*n

Gonna have to put your kid through school

But you think it's not enough for you

You can hold your own girl

You gotta believe



And now you're expecting

A life you wasn't ready for

You're feeling rejected

And her futures unsure

And even though

Your out there on your own

Don*t give up sunshine

There will be better days

(keep your head up)

And though you have

To raise a child alone

Don*t give up sunshine

There will be better days

(keep your head up)
