lyrics

Chorus:
Chee Malabar
You gotta live, you gotta strive, gotta keep, keep on
You gotta live you gotta strive, gotta keep, keep on
You gotta live you gotta strive, for another day

Verse
Chee Malabar:
25 years old, sittin' on a clear cold/day on his stoop with a blunt in his earlobe/peers stroll past and he wonders where'd the years go/dear old mama said praise God and be fearful/ …instead he slang rocks near school/first and fifteenth, homey gotta go see a fool/clear two, three thou a week, that's a mere pull/package is done, fiends flyin' like a leer do/…and he ain't tryin' to hear you/fear who? the FEDS? Their rules he don't adhere to/hustle hard on the streets, at home he's cheerful/…another day he persevered through/a year to the day his baby died and year two/nears full speed up ahead but his dear boo/lies near death on her bed as he tells her so tearful/…yeah we'll persevere through.

Chorus:
Chee Malabar
You gotta live, you gotta strive, gotta keep, keep on
You gotta live you gotta strive, gotta keep, keep on
You gotta live you gotta strive, for another day
