Lyrics

Keep on pushing
Keep on pushing

I've got to keep on pushing (mmm-hmm)
I can't stop now
Move up a little higher
Some way, somehow

'Cause I've got my strength
And it don't make sense
Not to keep on pushing

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Keep on pushing

Now maybe some day (mmm-hmm)
I'll reach that higher goal
I know I can make it
With just a little bit of soul
'Cause I've got my strength
And it don't make sense
Not to keep on pushing

Now look-a look (look-a look)
A-look-a yonder
What's that I see
A great big stone wall
Stands there ahead of me
But I've got my pride
And I'll move on aside
And keep on pushing

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Keep on pushing

Keep on pushing, what'd I say
Keep on pushing, well it's all right
Keep on pushing
