The Winner

This song is by Coolio and appears on the movie soundtrack Space Jam (1996).

It's time to take it to its full potential
Beat that
and drop some game on the instrumental and
it's essential that you're listenin' close
I'm gonna tell your folk that the L.O.C. is smoke
first things first since your date of birth
you've been kinda confused about what your life is worth
50 billion times your weight in gold
you gotta take control
'cause fools don't let it be owned
you can do anything that you wanna do
all you gotta do is put your brain into it
take your time and educate your mind
in the long run I'm sure you'll find
that if you walk the walk you can talk the talk
but don't wait too long 'cause life is short
and remember, no matter what they tellin' you
if you try, you can be a winner too

Keep on pushin'
movin' on up
everybody we're movin' on up
movin' on up
you're a winner
you gotta keep pushin'
movin' on up
everybody we're movin' on up
movin' on up
you're a winner

Everybody rise men and women boys and girls
each one teach one but we can't save the world
all in one day you got to take it play by play
and once you're on the path
don't you ever go astray
you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink
you can give a man some wisdom but you can't make him man think
a stitch in time says nine
the early bird gets the worm
but all you can think about is gettin' an essential number
if knowledge is power and power is knowledge, then
how so many idiots be graduating from colleges
better to be silent and be thought a fool
than to speak and remove all doubt
know what I'm talkin' about
when opportunity knocks you better let him in and sit him on down
and try to be his friend
in order to be a veteran first you got to be a beginner
but if you keep on pushin' you can be a winner

Keep on pushin'
movin' on up
everybody we're movin' on up
movin' on up
you're a winner
you gotta keep pushin'
movin' on up
everybody we're movin' on up
movin' on up
you're a winner

Red yellow black white or brown
if everybody mind their business we can all get down
it all starts at home
'cause once they're grown they're gone
and once they on their own
you gotta leave 'em alone
be a leader but if you can't be a leader
make sure your leader is a damn good teacher and
imagine if you was a car and life was a race
if somebody was holdin' your back then you would have to give 'em some space
put the pedal to the metal and match out low
but make sure you stay in your lane
and go stroke for stroke
we don't need no penalties or eliminations
or disqualifications
what we need is penetrations
I know you heard this before but sometimes life is what you make it
ain't the one that's known for fakin' or perpetratin'
if Albert was a' Einstein
and Phillis was a Diller
and Michael Jackson was a thriller
then you can be a winner

Keep on pushin' [Now!]
movin' on up
everybody we're movin' on up [take your place in this world!] movin' on up
[you gotta keep movin'] Keep on pushin'
Everybody we're movin' on up [movin' on]
[Don't you let nobody stop you, no no!]
Everybody we're movin' on up [You got your ways] movin' on up [I got my ways]
You gotta keep pushin'
movin' on up
Everybody we're movin' on up
[I don't mind leavin' here to show the world we have no fear.]
['cause we're movin' on up]
movin' on up
[Lord have mercy we're movin' on up]
movin' on up
you're a winner
['cause we're truth from the biblic lines]
[we're gonn' move on up]
movin' on up
[Lord have mercy we're movin' on up]
movin' on up
[Keep on pushin']
you gotta keep pushin'
[Lord, you're a winner]
[Movin' on up!]
