Chords & Tabs


Hey, I'm on my way up (oooh)
Can't put me down (oooh)
Business is tough (oooh)
I ain't gonna get pushed around
I'm on my way (oooh)
Gonna take this town (ooh, ooh)
It's gonna be mine all mine
It's my time (ooh, ooh)

I'm on my way (on my way up)
Straight to the top (I'm telling myself)
I'm telling myself (I'm totally sussed)
I'm putting my name around (on my way up)
Oooh hoo (on my way up)
Gonna get that rhythm
I got positivism to give 'em

I'm on my way through
Where I'm going to
You wouldn't believe
But I'll make it I'm telling you
I'm on a roll (oooh)
Gonna have it all (ooh, ooh)
It's gonna be fine so fine
Baby all of the time (ooh, ooh)

I'm in control (on my way up)
I'm mighty bold (I'm telling myself)
I'm looking good (I'm totally sussed)
I'm quitting the neighbourhood
On my way up (oh yes I am)
Gotta get right with 'em
Got all of my life left for livin'
Wow, yeah

Nobody gonna tell me no
Nobody gonna stop me so
Everybody gonna see me grow
Nobody gonna hold me down
Gotta get to a better place
Gotta wake up, and see your face
Gotta hold on, move on
Go through that wall

It's my life or it's nothing
Our life or its nothing at all
I'm on my way up
Yeah, gotta come with me, hey, let's go
Hit 'em

I'm on my way

Oh, I'm on my way (on my way up)
Yeah, gonna get it right (I'm telling myself)
I'm telling myself (I'm totally sussed)
Gonna make it this time around (on my way up, yeah) on my way up
Gonna get that rhythm baby (on my way up)
Gonna start that livin' babe (on my way up) yeah (up) yeah (up) yeah (up)
Got all my sights set on heaven

Wow, hey, hey
Hey, no stop me now, hey no stop me now, hey no stop me now
