I was laughing, playing in the streets,
I was unknowing; I didn't know about things.
Then he came along, but never really showed me,
I thought that love could wait.

I was a young girl. I was sure to go astray.
You walked right into my life and told me
Love would find a way, find a way, yeah.
Gotta keep on growing,
Keep on growing, gotta keep on growing.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.

I was standing, looking in the face
Of one who loved me, feeling so ashamed.
Hoping, I pray the Lord, that he could understand me,
And I didn't know his name.

He took my hand in his and told me I was wrong.
He said, you're gonna be all right girl,
Oh just as long, just as long...
Gotta keep on growing,
Keep on growing, gotta keep on growing,
Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Baby, someday maybe, who knows where or when, Lord,
Just you wait and see. Let me hold you,
Together hand in hand, alone forever;
'Cause I want just you and me.

This time is gonna change it all, I know it's true;
Our love is gonna keep on growing
And growing's all we gotta do, all we gotta do, yeah.

Oh, got to keep on growing,
Gotta keep on growing, gotta keep on growing.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Gotta keep on growing,
Keep on growing, gotta keep on growing.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Gotta keep on growing, gotta keep on growing,
Staring, looking in the face of the one that loved me.
Gotta keep on growing,
Gotta keep on growing, gotta keep on growing, oh yeah,
I was a young girl,
You said love will find a way,
Love will find a way.
Gotta keep on growing...
