Self-Reliance

(verse 1)

I always remember- my mama, she- read to me

tales about princes- she read me... all those stories

She told me, baby, "Don't you ever wait on him.

You've got your own life.  You've got your own kin.

So don't always look- for what you want life to be

-Life is misleading... always showing you what you want to see

First trust in yourself.  

Not even in me, nobody else...

If you wanna let 'em in, rely on yourself

 

(chorus)

'Cause you don't need no one, no one but yourself

You've got your own mind, earn your own wealth

No, you don't need no one, no one but yourself

You've got your own skin, take care of your health

No, you don't need no one- no, nobody else

Before you can let 'em in, rely on yourself."

 

(verse 2)

Daddy always called me, "apple of his eye"

He said, "I'll always love you more than- any other guy!

No matter what you do- I know you'll go far...

I've known since the day you were born...

It's just who you are!

(chorus)

'Cause you don't need no one, no one but yourself

You've got your own mind, earn your own wealth

No, you don't need no one, no one but yourself

You've got your own skin, take care of your health

No, you don't need no one- no, nobody else

Before you can let 'em in, rely on yourself."
