Attitude Boy Will Overcome

Livin', lovin'
Never get enough in
Always workin'
For another change
I'm rollin', flowin'
Dollars I be owin'
Got no pennies
To my lonely name

I see them looking down at me
From high up in their money tree
Tellin' me to go where I came from
But attitude boy will overcome
Attitude boy will overcome

Always feelin'
When my heart is bleedin'
I know someday
It will go away
I'm ready steady
But she don't comprehend me
It's all right because I got another flame

That's burning deep inside of me
If no one in the world agrees
I can make them see me one by one
Cause attitude boy will overcome
Attitude boy will overcome

Goin', comin'
Never stop my runnin'
I don't wanna see another day
Where people keep on
Givin' all their freedom
Wont' try livin'
Cause they're so afraid

I see the ease in turning back
Turning down the thermostat
But that won't make a tale for my grandson
So attitude boy will overcome
Attitude boy will overcome
Attitude boy will overcome

Attitude boy will overcome
Attitude boy will overcome
Attitude boy will overcome
