Work ahead and hope
Don't worry, don't feel bad
See the good in everybody
See the forest for the trees
Work ahead and hope, work ahead and hope

Even when your heart's broken
Even when you feel that you can't make it
Work ahead, work ahead
Everybody's got to eat shit sometimes
Work ahead every single day
If even only just a little bit
Don't take it too personal
Nobody's gonna care more than you what you do, no

So work ahead and hope
Keep your eyes on the prize
Keep your soul on the goal
Everybody's on your side if you try and there is no other way but to work ahead and hope
