Move On Up
Curtis Mayfield Lyrics


Hush now child, and don't you cry
Your folks might understand you, by and by
Move on up, toward your destination
You may find from time to time
Complication

Bite your lip, and take a trip
Though there may be wet road ahead
And you cannot slip
So move on up for peace will find
Into the steeple of beautiful people
Where there's only one kind

So hush now child, and don't you cry
Your folks might understand you, by and by
Move on up, and keep on wishing
Remember your dream is your only scheme
So keep on pushing

Take nothing less, than the supreme best
Do not obey rumors people say
'Cause you can pass the test
Just move on up, to a greater day
With just a little faith
If you put your mind to it you can surely do it

Just move on up
Move on up
But move on up
Oh, child, but just move on up
But move on up
Move on up

Hush now child
And don't you cry
Your folks might understand you
By and by
Just move on up
Towards your destination
Though you may find, from time to time
Complication
Bite your lip
And take a trip
Though there may be wet road ahead
And you cannot slip
Just move on up
For peace you will find
Into the steeple of beautiful people
Where there's only one kind
So hush now, child
And don't you cry
Your folks might understand you
By and by
Move on up
And keep on wishin'
Remember your dream is your only scheme
So keep on pushin'
Take nothing less
Than the supreme best
Do not obey rumors people say
'Cause you can pass the test
Just move on up
To a greater day
With just a little faith, if you put your mind to it
You can surely do it

This song is 50 years old.... they dont make them like this anymore what a gem.

“They don’t make ‘em like this anymore” I read that in Kanye’s voice lol

@Gavin The White Actually is not music that changed, it's the industry and radio stations that deny us the great songs of today.

@Gavin The White Would be AWESOME! I play hand drums and learning how to jam along on my djembe. ❤🎶

Remember listening to my dad playing Curtis Mayfield...along with 4 Tops and Temptations.😁

Gavin The White

Honestly I wish I could start a band with people who love this music and play the instruments and make the best we can. Music is changing to just be a money maker and not to truly inspire people

I discovered this track thanks to “Touch the sky” by Kanye West, and I’m not ashamed of it. This track is truly a gem

doubleT

Right on.

Never apologize for who you are!

I also find the joy in finding samples in songs, why does a great tune turn into a debate over who was better when both are different songs but both are great why do we have to have one great, we’re all the greatest cause we’re the people we’re in this together, both men are legends of music nothing wrong giving Kanye flowers because we acknowledge we didn’t give em to Curtis while he was here

Jacob Miller

Both definitely a gem!
