Fight The Good Fight

Album: Allied Forces (1981)
  • The days grow shorter and the nights are getting long
    Feels like we're running out of time
    Every day it seems much harder tellin' right from wrong
    You got to read between the lines

    Don't get discouraged, don't be afraid, we can
    Make it through another day
    Make it worth the price we pay

    The Good Book says it's better to give than to receive
    I do my best to do my part
    Nothin' in my pockets I got nothin' up my sleeve
    I keep my magic in my heart

    Keep up your spirit, keep up your faith, baby
    I am counting on you
    You know what you've got to do

    Fight the good fight every moment
    Every minute every day
    Fight the good fight every moment
    It's your only way

    All your life you've been waiting for your chance
    Where you'll fit into the plan
    But you're the master of your own destiny
    So give and take the best that you can

    You think a little more money can buy your soul some rest
    You'd better think of something else instead
    You're so afraid of being honest with yourself
    You'd better take a look inside your head

    Nothing is easy, nothing good is free
    But I can tell you where to start
    Take a look inside your heart
    There's an answer in your heart

    Fight the good fight every moment
    Every minute every day
    Fight the good fight every moment
    Make it worth the price we pay

    Every moment of your lifetime
    Every minute every day
    Fight the good fight every moment
    Make it worth the price we pay Writer/s: MIKE LEVINE, GIL MOORE, RIK EMMETT
