[Verse II]

I'm on my way through
Where I'm going to
You wouldn't believe
But I'll make it -I'm telling you-
I'm on a-roll
gonna have it all
I'm gonna be fine so fine
baby all of the time
Im in control
Im mighty bold
Im lookin' good
Im quittin' the neighbourhood
On my way up
Gotta get right with 'em
    E         A             F#     E
Got all of my life left for livin'

[SOLO]

[Verse III]

I'm on my way
Yeah- gonna get it right
I'm telling myself
Gonna make it this time around
On my way up
Gonna get that rhythm baby
gonna start that livin' babe
got all my sights set on heaven...
