When Am I Going To Make A Living

When am I gonna make a living
Ooh it’s gonna take a while before I give in
See the people fussing and thieving
While the sharks are wheeling and dealing

Got to wake up and tell yourself
There’s no end to what you can do
They’ll waste your body and soul
If you allow them to

This is the time
To start believing in yourself
Put the blame on no one else

When am I gonna make a living
Ooh it’s gonna take a while before I give in
See the people fussing and stealing
Too many lies no one is achieving

Haven’t I told you, before
We’re hungry for a life we can’t afford
There’s no end to what you can do
If you give yourself a chance to prove

We’re hungry but we won’t give in
Hungry but we won’t give in
Hungry but we won’t give in
Hungry but we won’t give in
Hungry but we won’t give in
We’re Hungry but we won’t give in
Hungry but we won’t give in
Hungry but we won’t give in

Ooh there’s no end to what we can do
They’ll waste your body and soul if you allow them to
Ooh start believing in yourself
Put the blame on no one else

When am I gonna make a living
Ooh it’s gonna take a while before I give in
I’m sick and tired of scratching a living
I’m hungry but I’m not gonna give in

Hungry but we won’t give in
Hungry but we won’t give in
Hungry but we won’t give in
Hungry but we won’t give in
Hungry but we won’t give in
Hungry but we won’t give in
Hungry but we won’t give in
Hungry but we’re gonna win
