Gonna Make It

1.
Vengeance is on their mind
Tracking me all the time
They won't let me be
I feel I'm in custody

Where have I gone wrong
Whay do they fight me down
I've got one life to live
And my love is mine to give

chorus:
Gonna make it
Day by day
Gonna make it
Come what may
Gonna make it
Make it my own sweet way

Gonna make it
Right or wrong
Gonna make it
In short or long
Gonna make it
Make it my own sweet way

2.
Times are tough enough
No need to huff and puff
My house is made of bricks
No straw, no sticks

I've got to save each cent
Enough to pay the rent
But happy is all I'll be
Cause freedom's my destiny

(chorus)

Gonna make it
When times are tough
Gonna make it
When the going's rough
Gonna make it
Make it my own sweet way

Gonna make it
Every step I take
Gonna make it
Every move I make
Gonna make it
Make it my own sweet way

Gonna make it
In short or long
Gonna make it
Whether I'm right or wrong
Gonna make it
Make it my own sweet way

My own sweet way
My own sweet way
My own sweet way...
