When I met a medicine man, he said, "Don't just lie in bed
Every cure for what you need is in your head!"
He said, "You don't need a compass or a map to find your way
Just don't give up and give it all you got, each and every day!"
You got to pick yourself up, 'cause life goes on
No matter where you end up, life goes on
You've just got to get up, 'cause life goes on
And don't you ever give up, 'cause life goes on....
Well it ain't some kind of secret or some special master plan
Just be yourself and do the best you can
And here's a little lesson to get you on your way
Just don't give up, give it all you got, each and every day
