Lyrics
Just keep your head above water
You gotta work yourself to death
And you ask yourself "Why high?"
'Cause you're never seemed to get ahead
But don't be like the lone ranger
As the same every lining
Things won't get any better
Unless we'll keep on trying

'Cause it's alright (it's alright, ooh-ooh)
To give out sometimes
Don't ever give up (don't you ever give up)
Oh-oh, it's alright (it's alright)
Hey, to give out sometimes
Don't ever give up
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Whoa, whoa

Sometimes things can happen
That's beyond on your control
One thing after another
You're going deeper in the hole
Nothing never comes easy
Giving up to get a job
Make your problems head on
Keep believing in yourself

'Cause it's alright (it's alright)
Hey, to give out sometimes
Don't you ever give up (don't you ever give up)
Whoa, oh, it's alright (it's alright)
Oh, to give out sometimes
Don't ever give up

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, oh, oh, it's alright (it's alright)
Hey, to give out sometimes
Don't you ever give up (don't you ever give up)
Oh, oh, oh, it's alright
Hey, to give out sometimes
Don't you ever give up (da-da, da-da, da, da, da)
Mm, it's alright (it's alright)
To give out sometimes
Don't ever give up (gotta get it together)
No, no, no, it's alright
Hey, to give out sometimes
Don't you ever give up (gotta get it together)
No, no, no, it's alright (it's alright)
Hey, to give out
