Lyrics

We may not have a cent to pay the rent But were gonna make it, I know we will We may have to eat beans every day But were gonna make it, I know we will And if a job is hard to find And we have to stand in the welfare line I've got your love and you know you got mine So were gonna make it, I know we will

We may not have a home to call our own But were gonna make it, I know we will We may have to fight hardships alone But were gonna make it, I know we will Cause togetherness brings peace of mind We can't stay down all the time I've got your love and you know you got mine So were gonna make it, I know we will

Our car may be old, our two rooms cold But were gonna make it, I know we will We may not can spare a roach a crumb But were gonna make it, I know we will And if I have to carry round a sign Sayin Help the deaf, the dumb, and the blind I got your love and you know you got mine So were gonna make it, I know we will

Were gonna make it Were gonna make it, baby It might seem hard sometime But don't worry, darlin baby Were gonna keep on tryin’
