(by c. jackson & m. yancy)

You may be in a big city or drivin down a country lane, yeah

Workin two jobs to make a livin

And all you do is complain, well

You should be thankful of what you got

Yes, you should be thankful of all you got

Wakin up in the mornin seein the sun rise (well, well)

Is enough to say I thank you, lord

Rollin over seein my baby’s eyes, uh

Is enough to say I thank you, lord

I just wanna say thank you (thank you)

Thank you (thank you) thank you, thank you, lord

(thank you) thank you (thank you) thank you

(thank you) thank you, lord---

Be thankful of what you got (you know you should)

Be thankful of all you got

You may live in the valley, you may live on the highest hill

Some people say you don’t do nothin but take the doctor’s pills

You may be in a nursery, in a classroom

Drivin your big fine car, hup!

Airplanes, uh, take you uh far

Layin out in the sun, uh

Or just workin on the run

Hoo, you should be thankful

Of what you got, I know you should

Be thankful, oh, yeah, of all you got

(well, well) yeah----, ooh, oh

(be thankful) we need to be thankful

(of what you got) of everything we got

(be thankful) we need to be more thankful

(of all you got) of everything you got

(be thankful) thank you, thank you, thank you

(of all you got) thank you for all I got

(be thankful) thank you....
