I'm so glad that I know more than I knew then
Gonna keep on tryin' till I reach the highest ground

Gonna keep on tryin' till I reach the highest ground

And Stevie knows that, uh, no-body's gonna bring me down
'Til I reach the highest ground

'Cause me 'n' stevie, see, we're gonna be a sailin' on the funky sound
Till I reach the highest ground.

'Til I reach the highest ground
