SongLyricSunday: Courage- “You Gotta Be” By Des’ree #Music #Motivation


Hi everyone! I hope your weekend is going well. Today’s theme is about having courage from Helen’s blog.

Today, I chose a song called, “You Gotta Be” by a British native called Des’ree. I remembered hearing the song playing all the time on the radio back in the early nineties. As a kid going through life problems and too young to understand, this song had helped me through it and among others. And, even until now.

It teaches that you have to be courageous and strong no matter what comes your way. You can and will overcome it. You can do it!!!

 

Lyrics:

You gotta be

You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold, you gotta be wiser
You gotta be hard, you gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm, you gotta stay together
All I know, all I know, love will save the day

Herald what your mother said
Read the books your father read
Try to solve the puzzles in your own sweet time
Some may have more cash than you
Others take a different view
My oh my, yea, eh, eh

You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold, you gotta be wiser
You gotta be hard, you gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm, you gotta stay together
All I know, all I know, love will save the day

Time ask no questions, it goes on without you
Leaving you behind if you can’t stand the pace
The world keeps on spinning
Can’t stop it, if you tried to
This best part is danger staring you in the face

Listen as your day unfolds
Challenge what the future holds
Try and keep your head up to the sky
Lovers, they may cause you tears
Go ahead release your fears
My oh my, eh, eh, eh

You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold, you gotta be wiser
You gotta be hard, you gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger
You gotta be cool, you gotta be calm, you gotta stay together
All I know, all I know, love will save the day
Yeah, yeah, yeah

  1. I used to listen to this ENTIRE tape, yes tape in my Walkman during my internship in 1995 lol I was soo mad because my grannie wouldn’t replace my car. She told me I had to take the bus to and from the school, which meant I had to wake up at 5 AM just to make it on time. Ugh! That tape got me through each and every bus ride 😉
