"In It To Win It"

I was born in Oklahoma, Tulsa Oklahoma
When I was a little boy I used to sing before my father preached
I wanted to love on everybody and hug on everybody and smile
But you know it was a time when there was still segregation and a lot of racism
You know here people called me names like lil' nigga boy and all that, man
When I got to college, I'll never forget, one of my professors told me
That I was goin' to be nothing in life and Imma end up in an ally
And I kinda ended up like that way, at least for a while
'Cause I did end up on the streets at one point in my life doin' drugs and alcohol

My story started, eh
Such a long time ago
Bruised up and scatted
Sometimes that seem impossible
Some said I was unable, yeah
I think they was afraid of what I can do
I never stopped believin', ah
I'm gonna see it all the way through, oh no

Don't tell me that I didn't want ya (want ya)
Like Kobe in the fourth quarter (quarter)
It ain't over till it's over (over)
Though I'm not backing down

'Cause I'm in it to win it
I'm gonna reach to the top
Nothing's gonna make me stop
Yes I'm in it to win it
Oh yeah, oh yeah (ooh)
Oh yeah, oh yeah
'Cause I'm in it to win it
There's a fire in release
So I'm giving it my everything
Yes I'm in it to win it
Oh yeah, oh yeah (ooh)
Oh yeah, oh yeah

Yes I'm (in it)
In it to (win it)
I'm not gonna (stop no)
Till I feel it

I see it in the distance, hey
Waiting for me like an open door
But more I get resistance
I swear I want it even more
I'm gonna be so grateful, so grateful
When I finaly get to you
'Cause I never stopped believin', no no
I'm gonna see it all the way through, oh yeah

Don't tell me that I didn't want ya (want ya)
Like Kobe in the fourth quarter (quarter)
It ain't over till it's over (over)
I'm not backing down

'Cause I'm in it to win it
I'm gonna reach to the top
Nothing's gonna make me stop
Yes I'm in it to win it
Oh yeah, oh yeah (ooh)
Oh yeah, oh yeah
'Cause I'm in it to win it
There's a fire in release
So I'm giving it my everything
Yes I'm in it to win it
Oh yeah, oh yeah (ooh)
Oh yeah, oh yeah

Yes I'm (in it)
In it to (win it)
I'm not gonna (stop no)
Till I feel it

And I know, the road is long
Yeah I know, the road is long
And I'm never givin' up
I ain't never givin' up
I know

'Cause I'm in it to win it
Nothing's gonna make me stop
Yes I'm in it to win it
Oh yeah, oh yeah (ooh)
Oh yeah, oh yeah
'Cause I'm in it to win it
There's a fire in release
So I'm giving it my everything
Yes I'm in it to win it
Oh yeah, oh yeah (ooh)
Oh yeah, oh yeah

Yes I'm (in it)
In it to (win it)
Yes I'm (in it)
I'm gonna win it
Yes I-I-I... I'm in it to win it
Oh yeah, oh yeah
Oh yeah, oh yeah

You know it's, it's been a, it's a roller coaster ride for me
But I'm having fun in my life and you know I learned one thing
My blessings come from God, my life has already been mapped out by God
So this is why I'm still here
I'm not going anywhere, I'm not quitting and I'm standing up
I'm standing tall, I'm goin' forward
Yeah, I'm in it to win it
