Everyone'll try to put you down Everyone'll try to tell you no If you've got a dream inside You're the only one who can know
Don't let nobody own ya Just say "One day I'll show ya" Revenge'll sure feel nice If inside you've paid the price -
CHORUS: You know it and you've gotta stand your ground You've earned it - no one can cut you down They'll try to get what they can When you're strong, everyone's your friend Guard the jewel you've found You've gotta stand your ground
Come on everybody clap your hands Doesn't it feel good to take a stand? Music is my only release Gotta fight for peace Fight for the beat
Whether you want for yourself or for others Stand up for your sisters and brothers Just do what you wanna do No one can say what's right for you - Oooo!
Yo, Fred! Check this one out!
RAP: You know you feel helpless on your own Swallow your pride - don't you go it alone Don't you run away from what is right Stand your ground - stay there and fight The only police are in your mind You gotta work - now work now double time 'Cause runnin' only lets 'em get the best of you So stand your ground Do watcha gotta do.....
(You know it) You've gotta stand your ground (you've gotta stand your ground) (You've earned it) No one can cut you down, down, down, down They'll try to get what they can When you're strong, everyone's your friend Guard the jewel you've found You've gotta (you know it) stand (stand) You've gotta stand your ground You've gotta stand (stand, stand) yeah! Stand your ground They'll try, they'll try, they'll try Guard the jewel you've found Listen up, listen up (listen up) Stand your ground
