  • Walk around, why wear a frown
    Say little people, try to put you down
    What you need, is a helpin' hand
    All the strength, at your command

    How's ya faith? 'Cause ya faith is you
    Who you kiddin', to yourself be true
    Spread ya love, for a brighter day
    For what ya search, you'll find a way

    Oh yes sir
    Oh yes sir

    We are people, of the mighty
    Mighty people of the sun
    In our heart lies all the answers
    To the truth you can't run from

    Eagle flies, every seven days
    Still cryin the blues, all about ya pay
    What ya gonna do? 'Bout your living thang
    Will ya make it better, or just complain

    Everyday is real, don't run from fear
    'Cause better days are very near
    There are times when you're bound to cry
    One more time, head to the sky

    Oh yes sir
    Oh yes sir

    We are people, of the mighty
    Mighty people of the sun
    In our heart lies all the answers
    To the truth you can't run from

    We are people, of the mighty
    Mighty people of the sun
    In our heart lies all the answers
    To the truth you can't run from

    We are people, of the mighty
    Mighty people of the sun
    In our heart lies all the answers
    To the truth you can't run from Writer/s: MAURICE WHITE, VERDINE ADAMS WHITE, VERDINE WHITE
