"DO MY BEST"

Verse 1 [Rap]
I grew up in life having nothing of value
In earthy possessions to call my own.
In what I lived, some people wouldn't call a house,
But that's all that I had, & I made it my home.

I was considered poor, low on the ladder,
But I knew that God had made me for a reason.
I may have had little, but I could do what I could,
To make life a little better like I knew I should.

Chorus 1 [sung]
I found I can do my best with the little I have,
I can be content with what I've got,
Take what's been given to me,
And give it my best shot.
I can do my best with the little I have,
I can be content with what I've got,
Take what's been given to me,
And give it my best shot.

Verse 2 [Rap]
I could agree with the saying that "money talks,"
It always seems to be saying "good-bye" to me.
So I took a look at this from another side,
'Cause being poor seems to be worldwide.

Money can purchase anything but joy,
Pay your fare to any place on earth except Heaven.
So why struggle in life for a thing called gold,
When I can't take it with me when I grow old.

Chorus 2 [sung]
I found I can do my best with the little I have,
I can be content with what I've got,
Take what's been given to me,
And give it my best shot.
I can do my best with the little I have,
I can be content with what I've got,
Take what's been given to me,
And give it my best shot.

Music break: ----- ------

Verse 3 [Rap]
Life is really tragic when you only have plenty,
Plenty to live on, but nothing to live for.
I'll go for less then more & keep joy in store
Before I'd trade it for an earthly score.

Money can buy me a bed, but not sleep,
Money can buy me a house, but not a home.
It can buy me a church, but it can't buy me Heaven.
So I'll say amen & I'll sing it again.

Chorus 3 [sung] [A cappella]
I can do my best with the little I have,
I can be content with what I've got,
Take what's been given to me,
And give it my best shot.

Chorus 4 [sung]
I can do my best with the little I have,
I can be content with what I've got,
Take what's been given to me,
And give it my best shot.

Chorus 5 [sung]
I can do my best with the little I have,
I can be content with what I've got,
Take what's been given to me,
And give it my best shot.

Chorus 6
I can do my best with the little I have,
I can be content with what I've got, with what I've got now.

Chorus 7
I found I can do my best with the little I have,
I can be content with what I've got, oh,
Take what's been given to me,
And give it my best shot.

Yeah.
