Pick yourself up and don't look back
Pick yourself up by your own bootstraps
Pick yourself up, it's there for the trying
So live like a lion and don't hold back

Pick yourself up and don't look back
Pick yourself by your own bootstraps
Pick yourself up and start celebrating
'Cause there's glory awaiting when you don't hold back

I have sometimes felt the pain of disappointment
I have sometimes felt the arrows of regret
I have sometimes felt completely overcome with sorrow
But today is not tomorrow and I won't look back

Pick yourself up and don't look back
Pick yourself up by your own bootstraps
Pick yourself up, it's there for the trying
So live like a lion and don't hold back

You say you're down, down
We're talking rock hard times
And you just can't catch a break
You're just about to give up
And say you couldn't give a chuck
About staying in the race

But brother it's time like these you gotta rise up
Brother get off your knees you gotta rise up
If it seems like I'm talking to you then rise up
What else are you gonna do but rise up?
You never know what could happen next
You might be screwed, you might be blessed
But he who rises up has no regrets

I have sometimes been coerced by my own hunger
I have felt the icy cold upon my neck
I have sometimes had to beg and steal and borrow
But today is not tomorrow and I won't look back

Pick yourself up and don't look back
Pick yourself up by your own bootstraps
Pick yourself up, it's there for the trying
So live like a lion and don't hold back
Yes you can live like a lion when you don't hold back
